Instructions on How to Create a Sushi Birthday Cake

Items Needed:

  • 1 Box White Cake Mix
  • 1 Box of Multi-Colored Fruit Roll-Ups
  • 1 Container of White Cake Frosting
  • 1 Box Orange Jell-O Mix
  • 1 Package of Coconut – Shredded
  • Kiwi Slices
  • 2 Round Cake Pans
  • 1 Ice Cube Tray
  • 1 Pack Chopsticks
  • 2 Packets of Soy Sauce
  • Wooden or Japanese-Style Serving Tray

Step 1: Using the orange Jell-O mix, create the mixture and then place the finished product in a standard ice cube tray – preferably those that create rounded pieces of ice so that the finished product resembles the salmon roe often included in sushi dishes. Allow the Jell-O pieces to sit while you work on the rest of the cake so that they take the form of the eggs.

Step 2: Next, create the cake mix and pour it in the 2 round cake pans. Before placing the cake mix in the pans, be certain to grease and lightly flour the pans.

Step 3: Bake the cakes and allow each one to completely cool.

Step 4: Once the cakes have cooled, place them on the wooden or the Japanese-themed serving tray and use the white frosting to cover the cakes.

Step 5: Next, place the shredded coconut on the very top of the cake.

Step 6: Next, take a green-colored fruit roll-up from the packaging – or, even two, and use them to line the sides of the cake.

Step 7: You may then cut up the kiwi and place it in random areas beside the sushi cake so that it looks like wasabi that is often part of sushi.

Step 8: You may use a red fruit roll-up and crinkle it up beside the cake for decorative purposes.

Step 9: Next, take the orange Jell-O mold and place them on top of the cake, with a bit of the orange Jell-O liquid.

Step 10: You may then place the chopsticks in a decorative manner on top of the cake and the soy packets to the side of the cake, on the serving platter.

As you can see from the steps outlined above, it is not entirely too difficult to create a sushi birthday cake. You simply have to take the items that you have and use them in such a way that they come together to create the look and feel of sushi.

Now that you have looked through the sushi cake images that we have posted on this page and you have reviewed our how-to instructions, it's time for you to make an attempt to create your very own sushi-themed cake.
