Sushi Birthday Cake
This is such a unique cake, right?
It is a sushi birthday cake.
It was a dear friend's birthday yesterday and R found this little Japanese restaurant tucked away at Tanjong Katong road. They apparently would make this for you if you tell them that someone in the group is celebrating his/ her birthday at the restaurant.
There was a short debate about what this cake was supposed to be shaped after - strawberry... apple... carrot... I just agreed with everyone last night.. It seemed to look like any of those though I couldn't explain what the 2 smaller rice balls were.
But when I took a look at the photo today again.. I know.
It's a pumpkin carriage! The 2 smaller rice balls are the wheels!
Hm... Just the right cake for Princess G.
The food at this place was rather ok for a sit-down-order-away type of buffet place. I was most impressed by their miso soup with clams (very good... taste like one my Japanese friend's mother made for me years ago), hamachi sashimi and chawan-mushi.
