Last weekend when we had our niece and nephew over for a visit we had 'sushi' for dessert. It turned out like this:
Yes, we even ate the 'sushi' with chopsticks! I got the idea straight from the pages of the May 2008 issue of Family Fun. Unfortunately they do not have the instructions on line...but it is just pound cake cut into circles and rectangles. You ice the pound cake and sprinkle it with coconut (that's the rice). Then you just press various candies on top (we used Swedish fish, M&Ms, and licorice) for the insides. Lastly, wrap it with a fruit roll up. Easy peasy! We made these with the kids, but I suppose if you wanted them to look cooler you could make them ahead of time and pop them in the fridge until it is time to eat.
Warning: This dessert sushi is very messy and the amount of sugar consumed in such a short period of time will induce hyperness, even in the adults! Plan a trip (run) to the park after eating.
Here are a few other links to dessert sushi I found afterwards:
