sushi for sissies


i adore sushi, but my bh refuses to even look at it, let alone eat it. i thought he was squeamish about the fish, but after i made some vegetarian sushi he still wouldn't go near it (yay, more for me). it turns out that the seaweed also gives him the heebie jeebies. here's a recipe that even the sushi sissies will go for.

the mayonnaise in this may sound strange, but it it the "secret ingredient" that makes the cake so moist. i recommend not using miracle whip as it contains spices and flavorings that might alter the taste. they make great cupcakes too. 100 chocolate cake
