Cakes with Faces How To Make Sushi Guide

Posted in Books

Hello! As I have fallen behind on my reading (I have been distracted by Netflix and once again, Geordie Shore), I thought I would instead dedicate today’s post to a book I have been meaning to share with you all for such a long time – the Cakes with Faces How To Make Sushi Guide.

£3.24 – Amazon Kindle / £6.50 (as part of a gift set) – Cakes with Faces

After my blog survey last year, I promised I would start living up to my blog name and feature more Japanese related items on my blog.  A few days later, as if by magic, an email popped into my inbox from the lovely Amy at Cakes with Faces with some information regarding her e-book on how to make sushi.  I was intrigued, so I downloaded the sample version from Amazon on to my Kindle.  I was instantly drawn in by the quirky, original artwork and the friendly and engaging tone, and I quickly bought the full e-book.

Unlike typical “how to make sushi” guides, the Cakes With Faces How To Make Sushi guide is completely illustrated in a comic book style format.  The guide talks you through how to make hosomaki, futomaki, nigiri, and how to prepare edamame and gyoza.  The guide also discusses vegetarian options, which I am sure lots of people will appreciate.  The guide offers helpful tips and facts, some of which I did not know.  Yay for learning!

Even though I have yet to make any sushi of my own (I am not even trusted to make soup in my house), I am confident that when the time comes, this guide will be with me every step of the way.  Until then, I am more then happy to enjoy the illustrations and humour in the guide.  I would love to see the characters in their own short story (I would definitely buy that book!)

The How To Make Sushi guide isn’t the longest book in the world – it is about 15 pages long – but I am happy to pay for something so original, and do what I can to show support to independent artists like Amy.

    Oh this looks so cool! My boyfriend is totally into making sushi but our current cook book doesn’t explain it very well. I’m getting him this as a gift ^_^

    Thanks so much for the lovely review Danniella, I’m so glad you like my comic book! You should go for it and try making some sushi! (Don’t be disheartened if your first roll falls apart, it happens to everyone!).
