How To-sday - Ikura Sushi Birthday Cake

Friday was Marion's birthday, so I had to make a pretty phenomenal cake. I wanted to make an owl cake but had a last minute change of heart and went with sushi. I Googled for ideas but found only tons of cakes with lots of little sushis on them, so I decided to design my own and share the process with you guys {& I better not see this on Cake Wrecks!!!}:
