CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Pardon Michael Tosten's pun, but his Sushi Cake is "a piece of cake" to make.
And quite tasty, even for someone who is not fond of sushi.
Tosten served the cake with candles for a birthday, but this is no dessert. It's a savory, light appetizer made with seafood salad and the only raw seafood involved is a little caviar.
And if crabmeat is not to your liking, than substitute any meat, egg, vegetable or seafood salad, even a seafood salad containing sushi-grade raw tuna, says Tosten, a culinary instructor for 10 years at the Franklin County Career & Technology Center.
Tosten, 37, created his version of Sushi Cake, a layered rice cake, a few years ago when there were limited opportunities in the Chambersburg area to find sushi.
