Sushi for dessert? Why not? Cake I made...
 
So, for my wife's, uh, 29th birthday (we'll go with that hehe), I made her a cake to look like sushi (she loves it). Everything is edible. The "cake" is actually fudge brownie. Rice was rolled, grain by grain, from fondant (which is what I used for everything decoration-wise).

Ha. Nobody ate the "sushi." The kids wanted it. I knew better than to give them all that sugar. Hehe. (and actually the fondant she uses - she has a cake business; that's how I had all the tools and supplies - is not very sweet; it's actually rather enjoyable, especially when coupled with cake)

Thanks.

I'm with you on the fondant. Until my wife finally found the one she's using now exclusively, I hated fondant. Most of it is too sweet and crappy tasting. This one is very mild and just adds a bit of sugary taste. I agree that icing is much better, but the results are not the same. If you want good, refined results, fondant is the way to go. :)

For decorating it's great but I always peel that **** off when I get a slice heh.

How did I know someone was gonna mention that? ;-) Actually, it's an American marketing invention. I know, surprise, right? And oddly enough, it's based on a Japanese cookie. :D

Wiki: Fortune cookies are often served as a dessert in Chinese restaurants in the United States and some other countries, but are absent in China. The exact provenance of fortune cookies is unclear, though various immigrant groups in California claim to have popularized them in the early 20th century, basing their recipe on a traditional Japanese cracker. Fortune cookies have been summarized as being "introduced by the Japanese, popularized by the Chinese, but ultimately ... consumed by Americans."
