First the fondant had to be colored with food coloring in the various shades that the design would require. It was then kneaded by hand until it was soft enough to work with and then rolled with a rolling pin, cut, and then molded into the designs that would resemble sushi.
The pieces were attached to the cake with more frosting. The small dish was filled with Nutella to resemble soy sauce and the 'seaweed wraps' were filled with shredded coconut to resemble rice. He molded a fortune cookie and fortune strip out of more fondant. Bamboo strips were created to decorate and trim the bottom of the cake.
The cake decorator then asked his sister to help write the Happy Birthday wish with special edible frosting 'markers' we had purchased, while he finished up by adding some fondant bamboo leaves to the trim and added some candles that were Lisa's favorite color.
The final cake turned out nicely and completed a fun birthday party theme!
