11.August.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, I will show you the perfect recipe for making chocolate Minnie Mouse cakes using the Mickey Mouse Tezukuri Okazu Maker kit which you can buy on Belle Maison.

 

1. Ingredients

About 3-4 prep bowls

1 large egg

40g sugar

Oil or 10g melted unsalted butter

15ml milk

50g weak flour (sifted)

10g cocoa

5g baking powder

2.

①Crack the egg into a mixing bowl, add the sugar and whisk well.

②Add a drizzle of oil or melted butter and milk and whisk again.

③Add the sifted flour and stir in gently with a rubber spatula.

3.

Oil the silicone cake moulds and spoon in your mix.

4.

Steam on a high heat for about 10 minutes.

 

5.

Now it’s time to make Minnie’s ribbon. I got this ribbon mould from Daiso. Place it onto some baking paper and outline the shape with a pen. Fill the outline with red-coloured chocolate and leave to set in the fridge. Once it has completely set, add the polkadots.

6.

Once the cake has finished steaming, stick her onto a lollipop stick so it the cake be eaten like a lollipop, and fix the ribbon onto the top of Minnie’s head.

And she’s finished! It looks cute when you put a Mickey and Minnie one together side by side. You can make a lot of cute recipes using the Okazu Maker, so get your hands on one and try making your own!

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Winnie the Pooh S’more Cookies

    23.June.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.

    In this edition, we’ll be using a recipe from the Disney dessert cookbook Oishii Disney Sweets Recipes. In the book, there is a recipe for making s’more cookies of Mickey’s gloves, but I decided to shake things up a bit and make Winnie the Pooh ones instead. The glove recipe is super cute as well, so if you can get your hands on the book I definitely recommend trying that out too.

     

    A s’more is a marshmallow wedged between chocolate and cookies. The cookie dough isn’t overly sweet so it’s extremely delicious even if you pack full with marshmallows and chocolate.

     

    Ingredients

    Cookie Dough

    100g unsalted butter

    80g powdered sugar

    A pinch of salt

    20g egg yolk (1 medium egg)

    190g sifted wheat flour

     

    S’mores

    Marshmallows

    Chocolate

    Chocolate Pen

     

    1.

    Allow the unsalted butter to come to room temperature then knead in a bowl well. Slowly add the the powdered sugar, egg yolk and sifted flour in that order while mixing.

    2.

    Once the mix comes together, line it across a baking sheet and flatten evenly. Once flat, put in the refrigerator and chill in the refrigerator from at least an hour to overnight. In the recipe book it says to use a round dough cutter but I actually own a Winnie the Pooh cutter so I used that. Cut the dough to the size of your liking. Line them on a baking tray and bake at 160℃ for approximately 20 minutes.

    3.

    Once baked, leave to cool. Next, start drawing on the face. I made a video to show how I did it so check it out below.

    4.

    Place the marshmallows on the side of your cookie without the face and melt in a 500w microwave for 20 seconds. Place the chocolate on the warm marshmallows and then pop the face back on. The marshmallows and chocolate are more delicious when melted, so I recommend eating them as soon as you take them out of the microwave.

    It was fun to put in the amount of chocolate and marshmallows that I wanted.

    They are perfect for parties too!

    In this recipe, we’ll learn how to make a recipe from the book Disney Tsum Tsum Sweets Recipes pictured above.

    1. Ingredients

    Silicone cupcake case (my cupcake sections are 6cm)

    White chocolate

    Matcha chocolate

    Marble chocolate

    Chocolate plastic (also called “modelling chocolate”)

    Chocolate pen

    Oreo cookies

    Pink, yellow, blue and green food colouring

     

    2. Melt the chocolates separately over a bain marie and pour them into separate sections of the cupcake case, about halfway in each.

    3. Place Oreo cookies into each like so.

    4. Cover the cookies with the remaining chocolate and chill in the refrigerator until set.

    5. Once fully set, the final step is to decorate with our chocolate plastic, marble chocolate and chocolate pen.

     

    Sully’s purple ears are made with chocolate plastic.

    Pooh’s ears are made from marble chocolate.

    22.November.2019 | FASHION / FEATURES

    Frozen 2 dropped its icy embrace on the world today and Disney fans are more thrilled than ever.

     

    All of the characters in the film have their own charm, but it’s Elsa whose beauty has captivated the world over. With the release of the new film and the cold approach of winter, why not try doing your makeup like the queen of Arendelle?

     

    Step ①: Cheeks

    Fallen pink snowflakes on those sweet cheeks

    Use a blueish-pink blush and apply lower than your cheekbone and on the tip of your nose. Blend in a circular motion to make the blush round. This will create a white, almost transparent glow and will uplift your cheeks.

     

    Step ②: Eyeshadow

    Bewitching purple to stand out in a snowy world

    Apply a reddish-purple eyeshadow over your eyelidd. A tip is to connect the outline the inner and outer corners of your eyes with a straight line. Then add a bold and shiny purple shadow on top of that across your eyelids. Apply to your lower eyelid too beneath the pupil. If the outline of your eyeshadow has an oblong shape when you open your eye, that’s good.

     

    Step ③: Eyeliner

    Eyeliner to look like a sophisticated queen

    Using a black liquid eyeliner, follow your eyeline from the inner corner to the outer corner of your eye. Extend the outer line a little and make it parallel. For your lower eyelid, use a black pencil to fill between your eyelashes.

     

    Step ④: Lipstick

    Pink lips ready to sing

    Use a blueish-pink lipstick on your lips, and make sure it’s layered on nice and thick to serve that sweet aesthetic.

     

    An elegant queen that can harness the ice and the snow

    Elsa has the power to turn anything she touches into ice. If you catch a gaze of her enchanting purple eyeshadowed eyes, your heart is sure to skip a beat. If you follow these four makeup points, you too can easily look like the ice queen herself. A perfect look for dates, parties and get-togethers this winter season.

     

     

    The long-awaited sequel to Disney’s blockbuster animated is finally upon us. The first Frozen film touched the entire world with its frosty beauty with both its story and music. Let It Go in particular was a worldwide phenomenon, and was an immense hit in Japan too.

    Frozen 2 sees Elsa embark on a dangerous journey with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven as she discovers why she was born with magical powers, the answer to which is threatening her kingdom.

    The new film’s main theme, Into The Unknown, captures the complex feelings and emotions Elsa holds as she steps forth, with all her anxieties and hopes, into a new world.

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Frozen 2 Milk Tea Muffins

    19.November.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD / MOVIE

    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 recipe, you’ll learn to make cupcakes based on the upcoming Disney film Frozen 2 which is set to hit theatres worldwide on November 22, 2019. These cupcakes are inspired by the Anna and Elsa poster design for the movie. This recipe has parts that are a little more tricky compared to my usual recipes, but put yourself to the test and you’ll end up with something delicious!

    Milk Tea Muffin Ingredients (Makes 5)

    100g weak flour

    70g unsalted butter

    50g granulated sugar

    1 egg

    1 tsp bottled chestnut syrup

    5-6 chestnuts preserved in syrup

    50ml milk tea

    *To make the milk tea, add one black tea bag into 70ml of milk and draw 50ml from that

     

    Bean Paste Ingredients

    500g white bean paste (shiro-an in Japanese)

    25g unsalted butter (room temperature)

    20ml milk

    A bit of of vanilla extract

    A bit of Wilton White icing colour

    1. First, we’ll make the milk tea muffins. Bring the unsalted butter to room temperature and whisk with a hand mixer. Add the granulated sugar and continue to whisk. Whisk the egg fully, and then add slowly to the mixture. Make sure to add the egg slowly so as to not split the butter.

    2. Sieve the wheat flour and baking powder and add to the mix. Slowly add the milk tea and continue to whisk to bring the mixture together.

    3. Add a teaspoon of the chestnut syrup. Chop the chestnuts and add those too, then mix once again.

    4. Add 70-80% of the mixture equally between five cupcake cups. Bake at 170° for approximately 25 minutes.

     

    5. Next, we’ll make the bean paste cream. Do this by mixing together the white bean paste, unsalted butter, milk, vanilla extract, and Wilton White all at once. The Wilton White makes the cream turn a pure white colour.

    6: Allow the muffins to cool, lather over the bean paste to taste, and finally decorate. All done!

    I added colouring to chocolate plastic for the chest part of the dress. Then I cut it up and added it to the cupcakes. I hope you enjoyed the recipe, be sure to try making your own movie-inspired handmade desserts at home too!

However, following its immense popularity, the Mikka Mikan Cheese Tart is going to be released again this winter for a limited time.

  • Butter Sandwich Shop PRESS BUTTER SAND Releases Uji Matcha Flavour at Tokyo Station

    11.November.2019 | FOOD

    The butter sandwich specialists over at PRESS BUTTER SAND are bringing their famous Uji matcha flavour butter sandwiches to their Tokyo Station branch on November 13.

     

    Known as the Uji Matcha Butter Sand, this tasty snack was developed to celebrate the grand opening of the Kyoto Station branch of PRESS BUTTER SAND. Due to high demand, they’ve decided to take the product to Tokyo for a limited time.

    The exterior is made with butter cream and carefully selected Uji matcha. You get the full rich flavour of the matcha and delicious taste of the butter at once. The sandwich itself is filled with bitter matcha butter cream and sweet caramel butter for a sumptuously smooth combination that marries temptingly with the crunchy cookie exterior.

    The sandwich biscuits come in packaging that features navy Kyoto-esque artwork inspired by the characteristic cultivation method for Uji matcha which blocks out sunlight. The sandwiches themselves are individually packaged in matcha green packets to contrast with the box.

     

    Don’t miss out on a chance to enjoy the flavours of Kyoto while in Tokyo. Available at Tokyo Station only.
