I found this hysterical creation on the Twinkie website. It was created by chef Clare Crespo, and I think it is rather ingenious.

This was so fun! We made them for my daughter to take to school for her 9th birthday. Her favorite book right now is Yoko by Rosemary Wells. It's all about a girl that loves Sushi! Our family LOVES Sushi but not practical to take to school so this is great!! I put them in my Japanese bento box and sent chopsticks to school. We did freeze the Twinkies and that made it so easy to cut them. Thanks for a great idea!

Great idea. Put twinkies in the freezer as suggested and they cut easily. Loved how creative you can get with these, I made mine like a plate of assorted sushi. The best tasting ones were made with red velvet twinkies - I flattened and cut a rice krispy treat and wrapped it around the slice of twinkie so creme side faced up on plate. I also found that Entenmanns makes a mean twinkie.
