My son's 9th b-day. The boy is a foodie-in-training He requested as his b-day theme: not spiderman or batman, but SUSHI!
So we baked him a sheet of chocolate cake with a chocolate/cranberry ganache (featuring homemade cranberry preserves) and topped with with "sushi". Made from rice crispies, marshmallow, several colored "taffy" type candies and dried fruit.
Most important, he loved it!
