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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

    Oil or 10g melted unsalted butter

    15ml milk

    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!

  • 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♡

    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.

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Hello Kitty No-Bake Cheesecake

    14.April.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 a no-bake cheesecake by simply combining and mixing! This easy recipe can be followed by anyone and can be easily changed into a character cake of your choosing. Chocolate plates are hard to make but if you follow these steps you’ll be able to make your own in no time!

     

     

    Ingredients

    200g cream cheese

    200g fresh cream

    70g sugar

    1 tbsp lemon juice

    10g gelatin

    20 crackers (I used Ritz crackers)

    50g unsalted butter

     

    Preparation

    ・Add 5 tbsp water into the gelatin. Head it in the microwave for 40 seconds before combining with the cream cheese.

    ・Melt the unsalted butter in the microwave

    ・Let the cream cheese come to room temperature and then wrap the bowl in cling film before leaving to soften in the microwave.

     

    1.

    ①Blitz 10 crackers in a food processor and then pour in your melted unsalted butter. Add the other 10 crackers and blitz again.

    Add the mix into a cake tin. Wrap a potato masher in cling film like the photo below and press the mix.

    *By pressing multiple times with force at this stage it will prevent the biscuit from breaking later when the cake is cooked.

    2.

    ①Blitz the cream cheese and sugar in the food processor to combine.

    ②Transfer the combined cream cheese and sugar into a bowl and add the lemon juice, fresh cream and the microwaved gelatin.

    ③Once fully mixed pour it on top of your cracker in the cake tin. Put into the refrigerator to fully cool and solidify. Your no-bake cheesecake is done!

    Next we need to draw Hello Kitty’s face. I made a video so check that out below too.

     

    1: Get a picture of Hello Kitty (or character of your choice) and affix see-through baking paper on top with sellotape.

     

    2: Trace the lines of the picture with a chocolate pen that has been warmed.

    *The fatter your lines the less likely it is to break when you put it on the cake.

     

    3: Once you’ve finished drawing, place it into the refrigerator to harden. Once both the cheesecake and chocolate have cooled you can begin decorating.

     

    4: Place the hardened chocolate on top of the cheesecake.

    *Don’t worry if your chocolate breaks a little when putting it on top. You can join the broken lines back up once you’ve placed it on so nobody will know.

     

    5: Once the framework is on add the eyes and nose making sure to check the sizes and balance. Finally, fill in the ribbon and clothing with either strawberry sauce or strawberry jam that has been mixed with a bit of water.

     

    And you’re done!

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Hello Kitty Panna Cotta

    24.March.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 a Hello Kitty panna cotta♡

     

    1. Ingredients

    150ml milk

    20g sugar

    50g fresh cream

    20g honey

    3g gelatin (soaked in 1 tbsp water)

    Strawberries

     

    2.

    ①Heat the milk, sugar and honey together on a low heat.

    ②Once the sugar and honey have melted, remove from the heat. Add the water-soaked gelatin and melt into the mixture with the residual heat from the pan and then add the cream.

    ③Line the inside of a glass with thinly sliced strawberries.

    3.

    Place your panna cotta liquid from step ② into a bowl of ice to cool. Use a rubber spatula like in the photo to trace the mixture, ensuring to cool it until it is thick enough that a line can be traced through it.

    *It will be difficult for the liquid to pour between the strawberries and glass if you pour in liquid that has been cooled too thoroughly.

    4.

    Pour the mixture gently into the glass and place into the refrigerator to cool until it has solidified.

    While you wait, it’s time to turn strawberries into Hello Kitty. Let’s take a look how to do this in the video below.

    5.

    Use a cotton swab to roll out some chocolate plastic and then cut with a cutter into ovals.

    Warm with your hands while affixing to the strawberry.

    After attaching it’s time to draw the face. I used the end of a pick I bought from Seria (a ¥100 shop).

    The dessert is only moderately sweet, so I tried adding some strawberry fruit sauce and fresh cream on top♡
