INGREDIENTS Pound cake, cut into 1-inch-thick slices White frosting Fruit leather Flaked coconut An assortment of candies and jellies for sweet toppings and sushi sides
DIRECTIONS 1. For rolls, use a knife to cut 1 1/2-inch circles from a slice of cake. 2. Frost the tops of the circles, then wrap a 6-inch strip of fruit leather “seaweed” around each one, using a dab of frosting to secure it. 3. Press coconut “rice” into the frosting. 4. For individual sushi, cut a cake slice into rectangles and round the edge. 5. Frost the top and sides of each oval, then roll it in coconut. Sweet toppings: From left to right, starting with the top row, we used orange nonpareils, apricot preserves, and pieces of Twizzlers Rainbow Twists. In the middle row, we used a green gumdrop slice, diced Swedish Fish, and gumdrop wedges. On the bottom row, we topped the sushi base with a Swedish Fish, then wrapped it with a strip of fruit leather. Sushi sides: To make wasabi, warm a green Starburst candy in the microwave for 10 seconds, then use your hands to work it into a mound. For pickled ginger, microwave and flatten an orange Starburst candy, then bunch it up into a pile, as shown on top. Blue Star Recipes – Spice up deployment!
