Green Tea Roll?

Sushi restaurants have the weirdest names for their sushi rolls. Dragon Roll, Ninja Roll, Dynamite Roll, Spicy Surf Rider, etc...  I can't think of one just yet for this so I'm going with Green Tea Roll for now.

I made this for my family's Christmas dinner.  We decided to go pot luck this year and every member is bringing what they want to eat.  Naturally, for my dad, this means sushi and sashimi.  This inspired me to make these desserts to go with that theme. 

It's a rolled up green tea sponge cake, filled with a white chocolate buttercream.  It's topped off in orange nonpareils to emulate roe.  Complete with a dark chocolate dipping sauce, taking place of the traditional soy sauce and wasabi. 

Merry Christmas!

We'd like to thank Jane: An Event Design & Coordination Co. for the opportunity and for providing us with these pictures.

Triple Salted Caramel Mini Cupcakes

Did a test bake on a salted caramel mini cupcakes today for a baby shower later in the week.
It came out good.  The buttercream has a nice balance of sweet caramel and salt.  The cupcake is filled with a caramel syrup in the middle.  Therefore, a Triple Salted Caramel Mini Cupcake.
