Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn How to Make “Pompompurin Steamed Cheese Bread”

24.November.2018 | FEATURES / FOOD

With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s easy recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

In this character recipe you will learn how to make a “Pompompurin Steamed  Cheese Bread” (labeled CHEESE STEAM UP BREAD).

Did you know that recently decorating a “steamed cheese bread” is the in thing to be doing right now? So, in this recipe I will explain about how to decorate a steamed cheese bread in a Christmas fashion.

 

1:Ingredients

1 steamed cheese bread

1 sheet of nori (dried seaweed)

Chocolate plastic

Red coloring powder

 

2:

Trace an illustration of your favorite character onto a baking sheet. I chose Pompompurin. Next, I thought it would be cute to indent the face and highlight the ears so I cut out these parts from the baking sheet.

3:

Next, place the face cutout onto the surface of the cheese bread and cut the bread in line with the cutout. Remove this part and set it aside. This part will be used to make the ears and hands. The surface below the removed part might be a bit uneven so using the back end of a chopstick make this area flat.

4:

Turn over the removed part and flatten this surface using the back end of a chopstick. Place the ear cutout onto the surface and cut the ears out. Using the remaining part cut out some round hands.

5:Color the plastic chocolate red and form the hat and boots. Using the white plastic chocolate, add the white parts. Using a puncher, cut out the eyes, nose and mouth from the laver seaweed.

Place all of these parts on the surface of the cheese bread, and voila, your “Pompompurin Steamed Cheese Bread” is complete.

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: How to Make Winnie the Pooh Cheesecake

    21.October.2018 | FEATURES / FOOD

    With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s easy recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

     

    I’ve received lots of comments from my followers asking if I have an easier recipe they can make without messing anything up. So today I’m showing you my simple Winnie the Pooh cheesecake recipe using items bought from Muji!

     

    1: Ingredients/Equipment

    ・①Muji’s baked cheesecake mix (above right) ②Muji’s Thick-Sliced Baumkuchen (above left)

    ・Eggs, milk and unsalted butter needed for the baked cheesecake

    ・Cake mould (There was a paper mould inside the cheesecake mix box but I got myself 4 smaller ones)

    ・Round cutter for the ears

    ・Chocolate pen for the face

     

    2. Put together all the necessary ingredients written on the back of the baked cheesecake mix box into a bowl. Mix together and cook.

    3. Once your cakes are cooked, add the apricot jam that comes in the box as shown in the photograph and use the back of a spoon to spread it out. (Don’t worry if there are cracks in the cakes when cooking. Once you put the jam on it’ll look just like Pooh’s face.)

     

    Slice the brown outer part of your thick-sliced Baumkuchen and shape into ears with your cutter. (If you don’t have a round cutter then scissors or any other cutters will work fine.)

     

    Drawn on Pooh’s facial features with your chocolate pen and you’re done!

    The jam makes the face viscous so it’s nice and easy to draw the face on even for beginners. If you mess up, just wake a short while for the chocolate to harden and take it off. If that happens just smooth out the jam once more with the back of a spoon so there aren’t any peaks and try again!

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Kiirotori Cup Sushi

    07.October.2018 | FEATURES / FOOD

    With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s easy recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

     

    Today, you’ll learn how to make Kiirotori Cup Sushi. Kiirotori is a small yellow bird who is often seen with Rilakkuma.

    1.
    Ingredients
    ★Transparent cups (the ones I used are from Daiso)
    ★Sumeshi (vinegared sushi rice)
    ★Ground sesame seeds, furikake seasoning (I used Decofuri’s orange and purple seasoning)
    ★Thick omelette
    ★Fresh fish of your choice

     

    2.
    Divide three portions of vinegared sushi rice and mix one each with the ground sesame seeds and Decofuri seasonings. Mix the Decofuri orange seasoning with some flying fish roe (tobikko) too.

     

    3.
    Create three layers of rice from step 2 in your transparent cups as shown above.

     

    4.
    Pile fresh fish of your choice onto the cups.

     

    5.
    Slice the thick omelette. I sliced mine into a Kiirotori shape but you can make whatever you like.

    Place your character omelette on top of your rice next to the fish. I was making Halloween themed sushi this time so I dressed it up with Halloween toothpicks and other decorations♡

    Jolly faces are all around at Tokyo Disney Resort right now as Disney Christmas kicked off last Friday. It’s set to sleigh its way up to Christmas Day this year.

     

    The editorial team at MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON jumped ahead and got to experience all of the festive fun taking place at Tokyo Disneyland parks, so we’re going to showcase some of the magical events taking place this year.

     

    Disney characters dress up for the amazing Christmas parade


    If you’re visiting Tokyo Disneyland this year, the one event you absolutely have to check out the Disney Christmas Stories parade, where Mickey and company, as well as characters from various Disney Pixar films like Frozen and Toy Story, all arrive on Christmas floats.

    All of the floats and themed on the films they appear in. For example, Lilo and Stitch ride a Hawaii Christmas boat, while Donald and Daisy have their own boat decked out with Christmas decorations.


    The floats will stop before the crowd, and that’s when the dancing begins! Mickey, Minnie, Chip and Dale begin the dancing in front of Cinderella’s castle. All of the Christmas-clad characters and dancers invite guests to join in with dancing.

    Once the dancing stops, the floats begin to move again, and snow falls all around the guests, plunging them into a White Christmas. The parade is truly magical at this point as the snow dances through the air. What could be better than celebrating Christmas than with your favourite Disney character at Tokyo Disneyland?

     

     

    Gaze up at the 15-meter tall Christmas tree

    The first thing to catch your eye if you walk towards the World Bazaar from the entrance is the towering Christmas tree which stands 15 meters high. At night, they turn the Christmas lights on, glow beautifully with the other visuals shining in the area. Here you’ll truly feel like you’ve been transported to a Christmas land as you’re wrapped in the warm lights of the illuminations and lulled by the music.

     

    Photo opportunities with your favourite characters

    In front of the Cinderella castle you’ll find multiple photo spots with statues of Disney characters. There are photographers there ready to take guests’ photos for them, so be sure to dress in your Christmas best to snap a memorable picture with the Disney cast. If you buy the photo, you’ll also receive a Christmas illustration and other goodies.

     

    You can really feel the Christmas spirit at Tokyo Disneyland simply by walking through the park. Don’t miss this year’s Disney Christmas, and be sure to invite friends, family and loved ones along for the ride.

    The holiday season has finally hit Starbucks in Japan, and for the first drink in their series of Christmas beverages, they are serving the new Merry Strawberry Cake Frappuccino which is made to look and taste like a strawberry cake.
