5: Add the maccha liquid which you made in Step 3 little by little to the whipped cream you made in Step 4 and mix it well. Also, add the gelatin you made in Step 3 and mix it together well. Please note that you must add the gelatin little by little since the gelatin and the liquid will separate if you add the gelatin all at once.

8: Cut the boiled marron in half, vertically. The cut surface will become the face.

Using the other half of the marron, cut out two circles to use as the ears. Using a fried pasta attach the ears to the head.

Use the chocolate pen to draw the white part of the mouth, yellow part of the ears, eyes and nose. It is recommended that you use the pointed side of a toothpick to draw the mouth.
