Candy Sushi - 2 Ways

ETA: I should add that the cake sushi is not too bad.
I would make it again.
But I HATE rice crispy treats, so that probably influenced my dislike of the crispy sushi.
And it's really weird to bite into a hard crispy thing and have a sticky strip of sugar flopping around on the outside.
Anyway......they look pretty.
And the cake works. It's soft and sweet, so make that type, if you make them.
I have always wanted to make candy sushi.
It looks so neat.
Um, yeah, but it takes a lot of time and they don't taste that great.
But anyway.....here's how I spent 3 hours of my life.

For the first type of sushi I made rice crispies.
3 Tbs. butter
4 cups marshmallows
6 cups rice crispies
I rolled them into balls and wrapped a piece of fruit-by-the-foot around each ball.
Then I decorated them using different types of candy.

For the second type of sushi I made a pound cake and cut out little circles of cake.
Then I wrapped a fruit-by-the-foot around each piece and frosted the top.
I dipped the frosted top into shredded coconut.
Then I decorated with candy.

The pink "ginger" is a chopped strawberry starkiss.
The "wasabi" is powdered sugar, water and food coloring.


  1. They look lovely, I wonder why aren't they tasty the ingredient look OK. Wonderful idea maybe some tweaks oould change the taste. Cheers from Audax in Australia.

  2. What a bummer that they don't taste good -- they look amazing!

  3. They're really awfully cute, though!

  4. Thanks all!
    I liked the cake, but it was waaaaaay too much work.
    I don't have the attention span for stuff like this.
    Oh well, it was fun
