I LOVE Japanese food. My parents had me eating raw tuna and salmon with overpowering wasabi at a tender young age. Growing up, every Japanese restaurant we ate at always had that Zen-like atmosphere, and I've carried that feeling with me to this day every time I have a bite of sushi.
It was therefore a delight to receive a request from my friend Janet to do a sushi-themed cake for her daughter's birthday get together.
|Everything here is edible, including the chopsticks, soy sauce bowl |
and Kate's name, all made with marshmallow fondant.
Underneath the marble looking slab, lined with wood
is dark chocolate cake with dark chocolate ganache filling.
|Every rice grain, all cucumber and crab cuts were individually shaped, |
all made of marshmallow fondant
I hope you find a little time for yourself this week to find your own happy place and enjoy a good meal.
