*Doll Festival Dinner* Sushi Cake

Turn regular chirashi sushi into a cake! The kids will be so excited!


Sushi rice
2 bowls
150 g
15 medium
Nori seaweed
1/4 sheet
Kinshi tamago
1 egg + 1 egg yolk


1. Line a cake pan with plastic wrap and fill up to about 1 cm with sushi rice.
2. Cut the salmon into small pieces and lay on top of the sushi rice.
3. Cover the salmon with another centimeter of packed in sushi rice. Top that with boiled shrimp cut in half, along with some shrimp cut into any sizes.
4. Pack in the rest of the sushi rice on top of that and push down from the top. Let it chill a bit in the refrigerator.
5. Remove the sushi from the cake and decorate with your toppings. This time I used a finely shredded thin omelet (to make it really yellow, I used 1 whole egg + 1 egg yolk), a rose made from salmon, cucumber cut into decorative shapes, and the rest of the shrimp.
6. I used smoked salmon to make the rose. The first layer is filled with sakura denbu, the second layer has avocado.

Story Behind this Recipe

This is a great way to celebrate the annual Doll Festival. Normal chirashi sushi is boring, so I turned it into a cake.
