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’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make My Melody Strawberry Purin

    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!

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Rilakkuma Santa Cookies

    08.December.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, you’ll learn how to make Santa Rilakkuma cookies 

     

    1: Ingredients: (For 10 Rilakkumas)

    Unsalted butter: 55g

    Icing sugar: 25g

    White sesame seeds: 30g

    Weak flour: 75g

     

    2: Leave the unsalted butter out for a while until it reaches room temperature and then mix until smooth. Next, mix in the sugar, sesame seeds and then flour in that order. 

    3: Next, split the dough into portions. To make one cookie, you need 15g for the face and 1g of dough for each ear. Arrange your face and both ears as shown in the photo below. 

    Top tip: Rilakkuma’s face is oval-shaped so don’t make it circular.

    4: After you’ve formed all your Rilakkumas, bake them at 180℃ for 15 minutes.

     

    5: Please refer to the video below to decorate Rilakkuma’s face:

    Before the cookies get cold, coat them in icing sugar, using a small brush to dust off the excess. Then, wait for the cookies to cool completely before decorating the face. Place a Meiji Apollo Strawberry Chocolate on Rilakkuma’s head for the Santa hat and you’re done. 

    This is the perfect way to contribute to your next Christmas potluck and it is a flawless plan to impress all your friends.

  • 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!

    The long-awaited sequel to Disney’s blockbuster animated is right around the corner. 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 will see 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.

     

    Frozen 2 Trailer Japanese Version

    The first Frozen film was a widespread global hit and there’s no denying that Frozen 2 will follow in its footsteps. Get together with your family, friends or lover to watch it for the best experience.

  • Shibuya PARCO Announces “Fan Gathering” Themed ‘Mickey Mouse Now and Future’ Exhibition

    04.November.2021 | FASHION / SPOT

    PARCO has been working with Walt Disney Japan to produce the upcoming ‘Mickey Mouse Now and Future’ exhibit, which will be held between November 19 and December 19 in the Shibuya PARCO 4F ‘PARCO MUSEUM TOKYO.’ The art collaboration project will express the present and future of Mickey Mouse, as created by Mickey-loving artists from around the world. The exhibition was curated in NANAZUKA, a contemporary art gallery in Shibuya.

     

     

    Mickey Mouse embodies Walt Disney’s  principles of “INNOVATION, CREATIVITY, IMAGINATION and STORYTELLING.” As the Walt Disney Company’s global ambassador, the mouse has inspired fans all around the world. He was first shown in the 1928 movie ‘Steamboat Willie’ and was voiced by Walt Disney himself. 

     

     

    Tanaami Keiichi, who will be displaying his art at the exhibition, described his memories of seeing the movie after the war. 

    “When I was a child, I watched Disney’s ‘Steamboat Willie’ at a small theatre near Meguro Station. I had only seen stop motion movies before then, so I was astonished by Mickey’s fluid movements, even drawing him in my notepad under the dim light of the emergency exit. Once I got home, I colored my drawings and began covering my bedroom walls with them. I was so satisfied, I felt like I could dance!” 

    Mickey Mouse also appeared in the 1940 movie “Fantasia,” which combined the splendours of classical music with brilliant colors, complete with fluid and graceful motion movements. It was considered one of the greatest movies of the 20th century and is still capturing audiences to this day.

     

     

    The exhibition will feature memory-driven artwork from artists from Japan and around the world. International exhibitors include Javier Calleja from Malaga in Spain, New York-based Yoon Hyup from Korea, London-based James Jarvis from England, and the Los Angeles-based Darren Romanslli from England. From Japan, the Tokyo based Sorayama Hajime, Tanaami Keiichi, and Yoshirotten.

    Javier Calleja and Sorayama Hajime have also collaborated to produce a giant 3D Mickey Mouse, which will be displayed as public art in Shibuya PARCO.

     

    Don’t miss out on this exhibition where you can feel the artists’ love for Mickey Mouse.

  • ‘Disney Cats & Dogs Exhibition’ at Matsuya Ginza Reveals the Secrets of Disney’s Animal Productions

    29.September.2021 | ANIME&GAME / SPOT

    While ‘animals’ are one of Disney’s forever-themes, ‘dogs and cats’ are special amongst them for being like family to us humans. The upcoming ‘Disney Cats & Dogs Exhibition,’ held at Event Square on the 8th floor of Matsuya Ginza between December 1 and December 25, explores the charms of Disney’s beloved pets.

     

    Mickey & Friends Pluto

     

    Lady and the Tramp

     

    101 Dalmatians

     

    Aristocats

     

     

     

    The movie ‘Bambi’ was an opportunity for Disney to challenge the tough task of “animals expressing themselves, while maintaining a realistic drawing style.” The crew invited animals into the studio, studying their anatomy and muscles to ensure a sense of realism. The characters were successfully drawn in an expressive way which captivated audiences, leading Disney to produce a large number of animal animations throughout its history. The exhibition will introduce visitors to the evolution   and innovation of Disney’s animal animation, along with the trial and error that it took to successfully draw animals expressing their feelings. The event is full of iconic Disney animals such as Pluto, the 101 Dalmations, Lady and the Tramp, and The Aristocats – It’s almost as if you’ve fallen straight into a Disney movie! 

     

     

    The exhibition will showcase a wide collection of over 300 digital and archived works, provided by the Animation Research Library, which hosts, digitizes, and archives everything related to Disney animation. Pieces that could be damaged if removed from storage, such as original watercolor paintings and pastel illustrations, are digitized and exhibited for the world to enjoy in a scale much larger than the original, allowing guests to see the details in each piece of art. This unique digital aspect is one of the highlights of the exhibition.

     

     

     

    You won’t want to miss out on this exhibition which features some of the most impressive dogs and cats in all of Disney works; You can laugh at Mickey’s friend Pluto as he features in some of Disney’s earliest gag animations, marvel at the romance of Lady and the Tramp, be thrilled by the dramatic escape from Cruella’s magical hands in 101 Dalmations, and even take in both the beauty of Paris and the cuteness of kitten Marie from the Aristocats.

     

    Walt Disney himself was known for being a huge dog lover, spending his childhood with his family and their dog. This ‘Cats and Dogs’ themed exhibition will showcase characters with expressions and gestures that reflect Disney’s affection and familiarity with the animals.

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Miffy Parfait Using Tofu!

    08.September.2021 | 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, I’ll show you how to make an adorable Miffy Parfait using tofu shiratama!

     

    Tofu shiratama can be frozen without hardening, so it’s great to use for cooking as well as making sweets.

     

     

    Ingredients

    250g refined rice flour

    300g silken tofu

    ✩ This is about 1 bag of refined rice flour and 1 piece of silken tofu.

    Canned fruit or fruit of your choice

     

     

    Put the refined rice flour and silken tofu into a bowl and mix well.

    ⚠️ Do not drain the tofu!

    Don’t add water, just these two ingredients.

     

    ✩I knead all ingredients and then freeze it.

    Feel free to freeze it as dough, or boil it first.

    You can put them in Tupperware and store them in water in the refrigerator for a day or two. Don’t worry, they won’t harden!

     

    Add the coloring.

    Take a little bit of food coloring and add as you like.

    Here, I’m adding the yellow that will be the center of the flower.

     

     

    After mixing the dough, place it on parchment paper and put it in the freezer for about 30 minutes.

    You can shape it before placing it in the freezer, but chilling it will make it easier to work with.

     

    Cut out Miffy and her flowers.

    Place the yellow-colored piece into the middle of the flower.

    Roll the rest of the shiratama into balls.

     

     

    Boil the shaped shiratama while on the baking sheet.

    Boil the round shiratama as well. When they float to the top, place them in cool water.

     

     

    Place the shaped shiratama on parchment paper or plastic wrap and let dry briefly before adding decoration.

     

     

    Mix black cocoa with a little water, and using the mixture, draw Miffy’s face.

     

     

     

    Place the flowers and shiratama balls inside the glass, follow up with your favorite fruits!

    (If using canned fruit, feel free to add the syrup as well!)

     

    I hope you enjoy decorating this colorful dish!
