If you've got a friend that loves Chirashi, this is one of the more special gifts you can get! The amount of sashimi was super generous; was easily 4 bowls of worth of chirashi. For the novelty and fish, this is worth the money, which is about the same as a run-of-the-mill cake. It's also good to know that this might not fit everyone's taste. This is definitely the most enjoyable birthday cake I ever had!
