Sushi Bases
For rolls, use a knife to cut 1 inch circles from a slice of cake. Frost the tops of the circles, then wrap a 6 inch strip of fruit leather (rollup) seaweed around each one, using a dab of frosting to secure it. Press coconut into the frosting. For individual sushi, cut a cake slice into rectangles and round the edges, as shown, frost the top and sides of each oval, then roll it in coconut, placing a small strip of fruit rollup (leather) over a Swedish fish to look like sushi.

Sweet toppings: Use chopped orange nonpareils, a small dab of apricot preserves, and pieces of Twizzlers rainbow twists standing up in a sushi base. Use green gumdrop slice, diced Swedish fish, and gumdrop wedges. Use a Swedish fish, then wrap it with a strip of fruit leather.
Sushi sides: wasabi, warm a green starburst candy in the microwave for 10 seconds, then use your hands to work it into a mound. Pickled ginger, microwave and flatten an orange starburst candy, then bunch it up into a pile to look like ginger slices
