  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Mickey & Minnie Mouse Cookie Cupcakes

    09.February.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.

    For this edition of Kaori’s Easy Recipe, I used a recipe from the Disney dessert cookbook Oishii Disney Sweets Recipes to make “Mickey & Minnie Cookie Cupcakes” which make for the perfect Valentine’s Day treat. It’s a super easy recipe to follow – I even made the cookies and ribbon using ingredients readily available at the supermarket. So don’t hesitate, give this easy recipe a go for yourself.

     

    1: Ingredients (Makes 6 cupcakes measured 7cm)

    2 medium eggs (40g egg yolk/60g egg white)

    60g granulated sugar

    2tsp vegetable oil

    1-2tsp lemon juice

    45g weak flour

     

    2

    ①Put the egg yolk, vegetable oil, and lemon juice into a bowl and mix well.

    ②In a separate bowl, whisk the egg white and gradually add in the granulated sugar. When adding the sugar, I recommend doing it in four portions. So add one quarter of the sugar, mix, repeat.

    ③Once you’ve added all the sugar, mix well to incorporate into the egg white.

    ④Gradually add the weak flour. Do this in three portions like in step ②. Please be careful as to not mix too vigorously when adding the flour as it will result in the dough losing its loose texture and becoming firm.

    3: Pour the mix into the cups so that 70-80% of the cups are full. Bake at 190℃ for 12 minutes, then bring the heat down to 170℃ and cook for a further 3 minutes.

    4: Now it’s time to make Mickey Mouse. I used one big Oreo cookie and two little ones, the latter of which don’t have filling. Like in the photo below, half the bigger cookie, place the smaller ones inside, and place the bigger half back on. If you don’t have anything to stick the cookie back on, you can use the filling of the Oreo.

    5: I used melted to chocolate to fix my Mickey Mouse together. If you add red M&M’s like I did in the photo below, Mickey transforms into Minnie.

    6: Once the cupcakes are done baking, make an incision in the top to place the Mickey and Minnie cookies into.

    7: Add some fresh cream to decorate, and your Valentine’s Day Disney cupcakes are complete!

    Kaori invites you into her world of character-themed food dishes in her recipe series. Be sure to check out her Instagram where she has uploaded many pictures of her character dishes!

     

    There are many other cute Disney recipes available in the book that Kaori used too, so if you’re in Japan or have access to Japanese books, then why not pick up a copy?

  • Star Wars Theme Cafe Opens in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Hokkaido & Fukuoka

    25.January.2020 | FEATURES / FOOD / SPOT

    With The Rise of Skywalker concluding the Skywalker saga of the Star Wars film franchise, fans are left craving more from the galaxy far far away.

     

    If you’re one of those people, and need a fix before season two of The Mandalorian, which is coming in late 2020, then you’ll want to hit up the all-new Star Wars-themed cafes now open for a limited time at branches of OH MY CAFE across Japan in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Hokkaido, and Fukuoka.

     

    We visited the Tokyo branch of the cafe which is located inside Tokyu Plaza Omotesando Harajuku. Here’s our report of this must-see cafe for Star Wars fans, a museum-like space chock-full of concept art.

    Ready to greet you as you walk into the cafe is none other than Darth Vader. This life-size recreation of the Sith Lord is really striking, but don’t worryーthough he is realistic, he won’t use his Force choke on you, he only wishes for you to have a nice meal.

    Plastered across the cafe walls are pieces of concept art used during the production of the Star Wars film series.

    Here’s a galactic showcasing of the cafe’s menu. There are 7 food items and 5 drinks to choose from, all inspired by the franchise and its characters.

    <STAR WARS> Far Far Away Galaxy Black Curry – ¥1,590

    A signature dish of the cafe, this black curry features the Star Wars logo which is actually an edible wafer. The space design is bamboo charcoal-cooked rice which is mixed with spicy sauce and topped with peanuts for stars.

    <BB-8> Seafood BB-8 Gratin – ¥1,690

    Fans of BB-8 won’t be able to resist this delicious gratin, served with salad and French bread for a full belly.

    <Yoda> Root Leaf Stew – ¥1,590

    This stew is inspired by Yoda living his final years in his little shack in Dagobah during Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back. It’s packed full of vegetables and will no doubt be enjoyed by both kids and adults alike.

    <R2-D2 & C-3PO> Buddy Burger Plate – ¥1,990

    This set of two chicken burgers comes with an R2-D2 seasoned with béchamel sauce and a C-3PO burger seasoned with meat sauce. You can take the flags home with you too. We recommend sharing this between two people.

    Portion Bread – ¥500

    This is the one I was most interested in personally, because I was curious to know from its appearance how it would taste. It’s the portion bread that Rey tries eating in the film. At first glance it looks crunchy, but to my surprise it was soft with a subtle sweet flavour.

    Lightsaber Drinks – ¥600 Each (w/ Coaster ¥1,300)

    From the left, the flavours are Darth Vader blood orange, Luke Skywalker ramune, and Yoda melon. When you draw your straw from the paper wrapping, it turns into a lightsaber!

    <STAR WARS > Jet Black Coffee – ¥600 (w/Bottle ¥1,750)

    These limited edition bottles of black coffee feature the famous Star Wars opening crawl credits. Which one you get is randomーa must-have for all fans!

    After enjoying some Star Wars food and drink, it’s time to check out the cafe’s exclusive merchandise. There are 13 types of merch in total all bearing artwork from across the film series.

    Folder – ¥350

    I recommend picking up one of these folders made in collaboration with the cafe. It has illustrations of the food and drinks being sold there.

    Tote Bag – ¥3,500

    This tote bag has illustrations of characters from Star Wars and how they are all connected.

    There’s plenty of other must-grab merch too, from music to stationery and more.

    Customers who spend over ¥1,000 (excluding tax) on any of these exclusive items will receive the above-pictured limited edition bag. These are limited in stock so are available while supplies last.

    There’s plenty of places inside for fans to take great photos, so make sure you snap lots.

    Also, if you book a table in advance and order something from the menu, you’ll receive one of these 25 possible A5 folders, so be sure to book before you go!

  • Frozen 2: Make Your Makeup as Beautiful as Elsa With This Tutorial

    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!
