  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Mickey Mouse Ice Box Cookies

    25.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.

    For this edition of Kaori’s Easy Recipe, I used a recipe from the Disney dessert cookbook Oishii Disney Sweets Recipes to make cute Mickey Mouse-shaped ice box cookies. Ice box cookies are made by forming the dough into a cylindrical shape, leaving it to set in the fridge, and cutting into slices. This means you can make cookies even if you don’t have a specific cookie cutter, for example one in the shape of Mickey. You can create lots of different kinds of cookies using this method. They’re light, crunchy and best of all, delicious.

     

    1. Ingredients (Makes: Approx. 30)

    100g unsalted butter

    80g powdered sugar

    180g sieved weak flour

    20g egg yolk (1 medium size egg)

    A pinch of salt

    10g pure cocoa

     

    2. Bring the unsalted butter to room temperature until it’s soft. Break into small pieces until it turns creamy then add the powdered sugar and salt. Mix well until everything is blended together.

    3. Add the egg yolk into the mixture and mix well with a whisk.

    4. Slowly add the sieved flour. Add about a quarter at a time and mix well before adding the rest to avoid clumps. After all the flour is mixed in, divide in half and mix one of the halves with cocoa powder.

    5. Shape both halves into a rectangular shape at 12cm x 6cm. Wrap in cling film and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

    6. Divide each half like in the picture below.

    7. Put ⅞ of the plain dough to one side, and roll the rest of the plain dough and all of the cocoa dough into 15cm rods.

    8. Roll the ⅞ of plain dough you put to one side into a 17cm x 15cm square. Referencing the pictures above and below, place plain “C” dough in the middle between the cocoa “B” dough. Ensure there are no gaps when pushing them together.

    9. Place the cocoa “A” dough on top of the “C” dough. Take both sides of your rolled out square dough and bring together ensuring there are no gaps. Wrap in cling film and leave in the fridge for 20 minutes.

    10. Take out of the fridge and cut about 5mm off the ends. Make sure to handle with care – if handled too roughly the dough will collapse.

    11. Slice into single cookies and bake at 160℃ for 20-25 minutes.

    Your cookies are done!

    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!

  • Rilakkuma Umbrella by Felissimo Can Be Used in Clear or Rainy Weather

    19.June.2019 | FASHION

    Felissimo released a new Rilakkuma-inspired beige-pink umbrella on their website on June 10.

     

    The umbrella’s design is subtle and sophisticated. The outer rim is lined with a brown coloured lace reminiscent of Rilakkuma. It also has a handle made from high quality wood carved into Rilakkuma’s face. The umbrella also cuts 98% of UV rays meaning it can be used in both clear and rainy weather.

     

     

    Its beige pink colour with brown lacing gives it a sophisticated feminine design.

    Rilakkuma’s facial features on the handle were made using laser cutting and together with the frilly cotton rope tied to it give it a polished and refined look.

    There is also a name tag on the umbrella with a nonchalant Rilakkuma logo printed on it.

    There is also a separate bag you can purchase to put your umbrella in after it rains so you don’t get the floor wet if you go inside anywhere.

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Pompompurin Gomaku Onigiri

    19.May.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 Pompompurin gomaku rice balls that’s perfect for picnics and lunch boxes. Gomaku is a mix of minced meat and vegetables with rice. These rice balls can be made easily with ingredients found in stores or at the market.

     

    1. Ingredients

    Store bought gomaku rice mix (五目ごはん)

    Rice (I used 2 cups)

    2 eggs

    Starch

    1/2 meatball

    Pasta (cooking instructions below)

     

    2. Mix the gomaku rice mix into the rice.

    3. Divide your rice mix into two portions, shape into a head for Pompompurin’s face, and leave to cool.

    I made a video for you to follow the next steps!

    1. Frying the egg

    ①Whisk the egg and then strain through a strainer, using a fork to push through any remains.

    ②Add the starch which has been dissolved in water into the strained mix.

    ✩By adding watered starch it makes the egg less likely to break and easier to wrap later on.

    ③Lower the temperature of the pan from medium down to a low heat.

    ④Once the temperature has fully come down add the egg and ensure it covers the entirety of the pan.

    ⑤After turning the pan around lower the heat again. Once the egg has fully set, turn off the stove and put on a lid to let the egg cook with the heat of the pan.

     

    2. Place the cooked egg onto some cling film, add the rice mix, and wrap into a ball until fully sealed.

     

    3. Use the leftover egg from the seal to cut out some ears for Pompompurin.

     

    4. Use half of a store-bought meatball and fix to the top of Pompompurin’s head with fried pasta to make a hat.

     

    To make fried pasta, add the length of pasta required to a frying pan without oil and cook by starting on a low heat and slowly bringing to a medium heat. Turn off the stove once the pasta has coloured slightly.

    Use the remaining heat of the pan to cook until browned like in the photo below. Fried pasta is a useful ingredient for various recipes where you need to fix decorations onto food, so be sure to try it out with other things too.

    5. Use seaweed to make his eyes and nose and ham for the cheeks.

    And your Pompompurin is finished!

     

    The fried egg can be prepared the day before meaning you can make up your lunch box nice and quickly in the morning. It’s super convenient learning to make a good use of the ingredients you have at home♡

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Pompompurin Sweet Potato Tarts

    04.May.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 Pompompurin sweet potato tarts using all ingredients you can buy on the market. Despite being so simple to make, its appearance makes it look as though you’ve put a lot of work into making it. Though spring is bringing the warmth with it, these tarts won’t melt, so they’re perfect as gifts♡

     

    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.
