To the naked eye, this looks like the beginning of a very yum sushi lunch from your local Japanese restaurant.
With chopsticks, empty soy sauce containers and six mini sushi rolls, it looks like every sushi lover’s dream ... or does it?
Believe it or not, this is actually a CAKE using a $4 Coles mud cake and lots of other sweet treats. Woah!
Posting the creation on the fabulous Woolies/Coles Mudcake Hacks Facebook group, clever home baker Resh reveals that she whipped the special creation for her sister-in-law’s birthday.
She writes: ‘A bit of fun - Coles mudcake, ganache, desiccated coconut and jelly snakes.’
That’s right, Resh used small circles of the mudcake and ganache for the sushi base, then topped it with coconut to appear as rice and little squared of different-coloured jelly snakes for the sushi filling. Genius!
Resh’s masterpiece was so convincing, it fooled many followers to the awesome Facebook group - including a sushi chef!
‘I’m a sushi chef! Looks great!!’ wrote one. ‘I thought it was actually sushi!’
Said a third: ‘OMG that is so cool!’ Added one more: ‘I’m stealing that!!! What a great idea.’
Other followers also suggested the ‘FANTASTIC’ idea of pouring melted chocolate into the fish containers to finish the creation.
