There are some very unusual wedding cake designs that are out there. No matter how crazy the design, wedding cakes all tend to have one thing in common: they’re dessert. I managed to stumble across one cake that broke the mold in a variety of ways. It’s cake-shaped, but it’s not a dessert and there is definitely no frosting involved. This is a sushi wedding cake. It’s not going to overshadow a good vanilla cake for me, but I love the colorful look of this “cake.”
The bulk of the cake is made up of sushi rice, as it is sturdy enough to form stable rounds. Regular cake pans served as molds. The huge quantities of salmon, yellowtail and ahi that adorn the cake are not simply dropped on top, but placed in the bottom of each cake pan, and the rice is packed in to hold them in place. Fortunately, this cake’s creator included a recipe for the cake along with the photos of the finished product that will guide you through the process of putting this masterpiece together if you want to attempt it for your next party or wedding (of course).
