Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Badtz-Maru Coffee Jelly

24.February.2019 | 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 will learn how to make Badtz-Maru Coffee Jelly using coffee jelly bought at Daiso. This is an easy recipe made with coffee jelly and modelling chocolate, but there are often questions on how to fit the modelling chocolate into a glass or jar so I made a video for it!

 

1. Ingredients

2 weck jars

Coffee jelly from Daiso

Modelling chocolate

 

2. Make the coffee jelly with the amount provided.

3. Roll out the modelling chocolate thinly and cut each part carefully. The colours are achieved with food colouring. Add this before cutting. The curves on the mouth are made by cutting with a toothpick.

4. Stick the eyes and mouth onto the inside of the vessel. Make sure to fit them on tight so there are no openings – the jelly will run through them if there are. Once you have stuck them on, place the jar into the refrigerator to solidify. The parts will come off when putting in the jelly if not fully hardened.

 

5. Once properly solidified, check your jelly has fully cooled and then slowly and carefully pour into the jars. Once the jelly too has set your Badzt-Maru Coffee Jelly is ready to enjoy.

    12.January.2020 | 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.

     

    As strawberries are currently in season in Japan, today we’ll be looking at an easy recipe for delicious strawberry purin. All you have to do is mix the ingredients and you’re done! In previous recipes, we’ve looked at purin recipes that involve decorating the inside of the glass. Many people commented that this is quite difficult so today we’ve got a recipe that is easy enough for even kids.

     

    Ingredients (For 2 Portions)

    Two small jars (this recipe uses Weck jars)

    200g Strawberries with stems and leaves removed (approximately one small pack)

    20g Sugar

    20ml Fresh Cream (or milk to substitute)

    5g Gelatin (dissolved in a tablespoon of water)

    ½ Teaspoon Lemon Juice

     

    To Decorate

    Premade Chocolate Decorations or Chocolate Slices (as you like)

    Strawberries to Decorate (as you like)

    Fresh Cream (As you Like)

    Chocolate Pen

     

    2: After removing the leaves and stems from the strawberries, blend them in a mixer.

     

    3: Heat the mixture in a microwave on 600w for 50 seconds. Afterwards, add the sugar, gelatin solution and lemon juice in that order. Finally, mix in the fresh cream.

    4: Meanwhile, press the premade chocolate decorations or sliced chocolate (white) into the inside wall of your jar.

    5: Use the chocolate pen to draw the face, strawberries and ribbons from the outside of the glass. If you make a mistake, wipe it off using kitchen paper and try again.

    6:Put the jar into the fridge for the chocolate to harden. Once the chocolate does not sink when the jar is placed upright, slowly add your strawberry mixture into the jar and put it back in the fridge until hard. After your dessert solidifies, you can add the finishing touches of whipped cream and strawberries.

    And you’re done!

  • Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Collaborates with Famous Poeme Sweets in Ehime Prefecture

    31.May.2022 | MUSIC / SPOT

    Kyary Pamyu Pamyu made waves with music lovers around the world last month when she performed at Coachella, one of the largest and most famous music festivals on Earth. On May 28, Kyary will perform in Ehime, and the artist has released details about another collaboration as part of the LOCAL POWER JAPAN Project, launched to energize Japan through the appeal of regional towns and cities.

    In Ehime Prefecture, Kyary is teaming up with Poeme, a famous sweets shop in Setouchi close to the Seto Inland Sea. The shop itself opened in 1950 with a different name and quickly became popular for its Butter Manju. The buns, baked in a buttery biscuit dough with red bean paste, were an extravagant confectionary at the time. In the late 1950s, a friend of the founder Okada Kazutarou tasted the Butter Manju and said “This is a poem,” hence the current name of the location. After 76 years, the name of the shop still reflects Poeme’s mission that has been present since the company’s founding just after WWII. 

     

    The collaboration logo for the project was inspired by Kyary’s 2018 album Japamyu, which was released after four successful overseas tours. The album cemented the artist as one of Japan’s top talents, and the logo combines Poeme with Japamyu to make Poemyu.

    A collaborative T-shirt is also on sale featuring the new logo and the singer’s 10th-anniversary logo. The shirt is only available until June 8 on the official LOCAL POWER JAPAN Project website.
