Sushi Cupcakes for Cassie

Cassie Joy Sweet is my cupcake assistant.
Think of that show..Cupcake Girls on WE TV.
Those two have major chemistry in the kitchen.
That's what Cassie and I are.

Now Cassie is leaving for Japan to visit her brother until November.
And to thank her for all her help....
we had a sushi making party last night!

I've made sushi cupcakes before for my brother.



He even used chopsticks to eat them.



The garnish "splashes" on top of the cupcakes were created by melting jolly ranchers in the oven and using a toothpick to make shapes out of them while they were still warm.  Inspired by the beauty-full art that is splashed onto your sushi platter at your favorite sushi restaurant.


And instead of making sushi cupcakes FOR Cassie, I thought it would be more fun if we made them together. Really appropriate since she is going to Japan on Monday. ♥

A Sushi Roll Cake Pop. On a Chopstick♥
The meat/avocado chunks are made out of beheaded gummy worms.
The rice is made out of shredded coconut.
The cupcake is a mini cupcake.
Flavor=Pumpkin!

Harajuku Girl & Sushi Roll Cake Pops on Chopsticks ♥
I told Cassie I would lend her the chopsticks since she has never tried sushi in Japan. But I expected her to give them back to me, since I want her to come back to me!

The seaweed wraps are made out of fondant.
A little hint: We used candy melts as our "glue" for the "rice" by having our own mini cupcake fondue party! We dipped the mini cupcakes in candy melts. Then quickly sprinkled the shredded coconut on the cupcake before the candy melts dried.

This is the chopstick we used for the cake pops. It even has pictures of Harajuku Girls on it.

Red Jelly Belly Jelly Beans for the fish eggs!

Cassie is feeding me a pumpkin sushi roll!
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

I told Cassie that when she goes to Japan, she should make the same cupcakes and put them out with normal sushi and see if anyone eats them thinking they are real sushi! A very sweet surprise. ♥

You can find Cassie Joy Sweet and her fun cupcake adventures on her blog if you click here.


Cassie even decided to donate some of the cupcakes to Cronie's in Waupaca (where I sell my cupcakes every week).  I sold them there today for $1.00 each just to see if people would come in to admire them, and dare to eat them! ♥ $1.00 isn't much of a risk for a yummy pumpkin cupcake coated in meat free sugar!
