While sushi is normally considered a savory delicacy, Brit & Co. shows you how to create these adorable and cleverly disguised sushi cupcakes. Using ordinary baking and decorating ingredients, you can transform plain old vanilla cupcakes into some far East-inspired confections.

So how do you create the illusion of rice and seaweed without things getting too fishy? Shredded coconut looks just like rice from afar and black fondant takes the cake for its seaweed-impersonating attributes. Sushi would not be sushi without the inclusion of raw fish or crunchy veggies, so gummy candies will have your guests fooled until they take a closer look at this deceiving dessert.

If you are looking for a fun and new way to decorate ordinary cakes, consider mixing up a batch of these sushi cupcakes. Get the kids involved and have fun crafting some succulent combinations.
