Alright, if you're not from Hawaii and you're reading this, SPAM IS AWESOME. Especially when paired with rice and nori (seaweed) to make a spam musubi. It's the perfect on-the-go snack or meal and often referred to as the "Hawaiian" energy bar. I'm a huge fan of re-creating foods I love into cakes, just for shits and giggles. It came at a perfect time because it happened to be one of my friend's fabulous 40th birthday, and I wanted to make her something unique.
So what you'll need for this cake:
-fondant: white, black, pink (you can buy fondant from your local walmart, or online)
-a cakeboard to build your cake on
-cake and frosting of your choice
-sharp knife for cutting
As always, start off by baking your cake as directed by your recipe and prep your frosting as well. I had some left over red velvet batter, so I used that, along with my never ending supply of cream cheese frosting! I baked mine in a 8x8 pan because I didn't have that much batter, and I am creating a spam musubi "to size," so a large pan was not necessary. Leave cake on the side to cool completely. While you're doing this, you can get started on making your fondant rice, if you need picture references, refer to my sushi cake post for more details!
Now that the rice is in place, step back and admire your handy work ;). If you have any questions, comments, or even requests for certain cakes please feel free to email me: Kristiesagara@gmail.com.
