Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Steamed Minnie Mouse Cocoa Cakes

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 Mickey Mouse Gratin Pie

    13.July.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 using the Mickey Mouse bread warmer you can buy online at Belle Maison. The warmer can be used for bread, pies and more. They will keep your food from going cold and drying out so it’ll still be as delicious as when you put it in!

     

    1. Ingredients

    Frozen pie sheets

    Frozen gratin

     

    2. Leave the pie sheets to come to room temperature for 5-10 minutes and then roll out slightly.

    3. Cut out two large circles for the face. If you don’t have a cutter you can substitute it with a cup or something similar

    4. Take one of the circles and cut a smaller size circle like below.

    5. Using egg yolk, stick the hollow circle from Step 4 onto the circle from Step 3. For the ears, check the size of the face you have cut out and cut them accordingly. Affix to the face with egg yolk.

    6. Layer egg yolk over the years and the outside of the face and then pierce holes with a fork all over.

    7. Add the frozen gratin to the middle and bake at 200℃ for 13-15 minutes.

    The recipe may be simple but looks just like something sold at Mamma Biscotti’s Bakery in Tokyo Disneyland! You can add mint sauce to the middle or even make it a meat pie. Whatever you do it’s sure to be delicious!

    Pop into your bread warmer for cute presentation. These make for great nibbles to share with people!

  • 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!

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Disney Tsum Tsum Chocolate Covered Cookies

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

     

    As well as the characters pictured on the front cover, others include Winnie the Pooh, Donald Duck and Daisy Duck. We’ll make the ears from marble chocolate than our usual chocolate plastic. The middle is like a sandwiched cookie, so you get a deliciously crunchy texture♡

     

    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.

    To see how I fully decorated my cookies check out the video I made below!

    Lining them up like Disney Tsum Tsum toys makes them look really cute! All of the recipes I used this time are from the Japanese recipe book Disney Tsum Tsum Sweets Recipes (Japanese Title: ディズニーツムツムのスイーツレシピ). It shows how to create lots of different characters!
