The lifestyle blogger – who has more than 80,000 followers – pressed a layer of rice to the base of a cake tin, followed by a sprinkle black sesame seeds, chopped prawns and shallots, topped with a nori sheet.

She repeated the step until the tin was full before she flipped cake upside down, placing it on a board. Connie then removed the tin to reveal the sushi cake. 

To decorate, she used sashimi, edible flowers and carrot shaped flowers.

Connie rolled the salmon and tuna sashimi to make rose shapes for the toppings. She garnished with rolled up cucumbers, parsley and scallops.
