Sushi Cake for Celebratory Events

Sushi Cake for Celebratory Events

I thought of this because I wanted to do something different for a birthday!
Using store-bought chirashi sushi is a bit of a shortcut, but if you can use a cake mold to make this into a heart-shape, this becomes an excellent main dish!

Ingredients

White rice
2 rice cooker cups (360 ml) uncooked
Smoked salmon
8 slices
Prawns
4
Spinach
1 bunch
Carrot
1/2
Snow peas
2
Egg
2
Katakuriko
1 tablespoon
Water
2 tablespoons
Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
Store-bought chirashi sushi pack
1

Steps

1. Make the chirashi sushi and thin shredded omelet. If you make the omelet with katakuriko and water, it won't rip as easily.
2. Parboil the carrots, spinach, and shrimp. Cut the carrots into hearts. Flavor the spinach with soy sauce. Cut the shrimp in half along the back.
3. Starting from the bottom of the mold, add the denbu -> sushi -> omelet -> sushi -> spinach -> sushi in that order. Turn over onto a serving plate, and decorate with salmon arranged in a rose shape. For the last step, garnish with snow peas and heart-shaped carrots and it's complete!
