Cupcake sushi is a new delectable, bite-size way to eat the popular Japanese dish.

Don't be fooled by the cupcake shape -- these cupcake sushi bites are not for dessert. They're actually made with nori seaweed cups, which you can find online or at a Japanese grocery store. Temari -- Japanese balls of sushi rice and raw or cooked seafood and toppings -- are placed inside the seaweed cups to create the cupcake sushi. Because of the crinkly, edible nori base, the miniature sushi treats look just like cupcakes. Some variations even have foamed soy sauce on top, like savory icing.

From "sushirritos" to sushi pizza, sushi lovers are always looking for new ways to eat their favorite dish. Sushi cupcakes are just the latest in the race to find the next big sushi concept.
