Ingredients/Materials

Store bought tart cases

Store bought sweet potato kit (I bought mine from MUJI)

 

1. Deposit and mix according to your sweet potato package instructions.

 

From that prepare 15g x 2 for the ears, 5g x 2 for the hands, and 15g for the hat. Shape the ears with a water drop-shaped cutter, the hands with an oval-shaped cutter, and the hat with a round-shaped cutter.

 

I made mine according to the MUJI kit I bought as shown in the photo below.

2. Smear the remaining batter into the tart case. Be sure to do this gently so as to not crack the tart.

3. Mix egg yolk with a little bit of water and smear across the surface. When doing this step make sure to flatten out any cracks.

✩Gently smearing with your hand is better than using a brush or spatula. It will make it look more beautiful.

4. Once you have coated the surface as pictured below it’s time to get cooking. My MUJI sweet potato kit instructions say to bake at 180℃ for 10 minutes, but since we’re making Pompompurin we don’t want it to brown, so cook at 150℃ for 10 minutes. After the 10-minutes is up it’s to add the ears, hands and hat. Place them on, reduce the temperature to 140℃ and cook for a further 5-10-minutes.

 

You may need to adjust times and temperature according to your oven to ensure no browning.

5. Once it’s cooked, leave to fully cool. You can then proceed to start drawing Purin’s eyes. Please reference the video I made below♪

I fixed the parts on with chocolate as you’ll see in the video. I then cut up some strawberries for Purin to hold and finally drew on the eyes, nose and mouth.
