  • 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!

    White chocolate

    Matcha chocolate

    Marble chocolate

    Chocolate plastic (also called “modelling chocolate”)

    Chocolate pen

    Oreo cookies

    Pink, yellow, blue and green food colouring

     

    2. Melt the chocolates separately over a bain marie and pour them into separate sections of the cupcake case, about halfway in each.

    3. Place Oreo cookies into each like so.

    4. Cover the cookies with the remaining chocolate and chill in the refrigerator until set.

    5. Once fully set, the final step is to decorate with our chocolate plastic, marble chocolate and chocolate pen.

     

    Sully’s purple ears are made with chocolate plastic.

    Pooh’s ears are made from marble chocolate.

  • 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.

  • 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♡

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

    10.March.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD

    Today we’ll be looking at a recipe for Hello Kitty-themed crêpes ー perfect for White Day! You can make these using ingredients usually found at home. This recipe is easy and so is recommended for children and for those of you who aren’t used to making desserts!

     

    1:Ingredients 

    20cm frying pan (makes 2 large and 1 small crêpes.)

    Egg White 1

    Wheat flour 25g

    Sugar                  1 tbsp

    Vegetable oil       1/2 tbsp

    Milk                     50cc

    Chocolate pen (black and yellow colours)

     

    You can fill the crêpe with whatever you like. Today’s filling is strawberries and cream because the outside of the crêpe will be decorated with a Hello Kitty ribbon made from strawberries.

     

    2:Make the batter

    ① Thoroughly mix the egg whites.

    ② Add the contents of ① to the flour and sugar and mix thoroughly.

    ③ Add ② to the milk and mix thoroughly even more!

    ④ Filter the contents of ③.

     

    If you forget to filter then you will not get a smooth, beautiful batter when you fry your crêpes so be careful!

     

    3:Fry

    We recommend you use a Teflon frying pan. As you want to make the crêpe into Hello Kitty’s face, do not cook the crêpe too much or it will become too dark! Therefore, keep it on a low flame. This can also be done well using a hot plate!

     

    Please refer to the above video to learn how to fold and decorate the crêpe.

     

    Before spreading out the crêpe and filling it with cream, cut a small piece of crêpe and place it in the centre of the larger crêpe. After this, you can put the cream on top. This ensures a smooth finish for Hello Kitty’s face as it is otherwise slightly translucent.

    And…finished!

    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.

     

    Today you will learn how to make Badtz-Maru Coffee Jelly using coffee jelly bought at Daiso. This is an easy recipe made with coffee jelly and modelling chocolate, but there are often questions on how to fit the modelling chocolate into a glass or jar so I made a video for it!

     

    1. Ingredients

    2 weck jars

    Coffee jelly from Daiso

    Modelling chocolate

     

    2. Make the coffee jelly with the amount provided.

    3. Roll out the modelling chocolate thinly and cut each part carefully. The colours are achieved with food colouring. Add this before cutting. The curves on the mouth are made by cutting with a toothpick.

    4. Stick the eyes and mouth onto the inside of the vessel. Make sure to fit them on tight so there are no openings – the jelly will run through them if there are. Once you have stuck them on, place the jar into the refrigerator to solidify. The parts will come off when putting in the jelly if not fully hardened.

     

    5. Once properly solidified, check your jelly has fully cooled and then slowly and carefully pour into the jars. Once the jelly too has set your Badzt-Maru Coffee Jelly is ready to enjoy.

    10.February.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 “Pompompurin Cookie Shot,” perfect for Valentine’s Day! It may look difficult but I have made it so it’s nice and easy to make!

     

    1: Ingredients/Equipment

    2 glasses or purin cups

    40g unsalted butter or margarine

    75g flour

    20g sugar

    1 cup milk

    Chocolate

     

    2:

    ①Knead together the unsalted butter, flour and sugar.

    ②Add the milk in little by little while kneading. Knead until the it has a consistency moister than regular cookie dough.

    ③Coat one glass with a little oil or butter.

    ④Affix the dough from step ② around the inside of the glass as shown in the photo below.

    ✩It’s best to make your dough a little softer than regular cookie dough to prevent cracks from forming.

    ✩Press the batter firmly to ensure air doesn’t get into it. If you don’t do this then the batter will split.

    ⑤Place aluminium foil into the centre of the dough to stop it from expanding when baking.

    ⑥Shape a cup handle and Pompompurin’s ears with leftover dough from step ④.

    ✩Bake for approximately 10-minutes at 190° with the handle and ears. Remove the handle and ears and bake the cup for a further 5-10 minutes.

    3: Melt the chocolate over a bain marie.

    4: Remove the aluminium ball and once the cup has cooled remove the cookie and smear in the chocolate.

    ✩It’s possible to remove the baked cookie smoothly by coating with butter but it will make it break easily so ensure to do it carefully.

    The inside of the cookie will look a little uneven after removing the aluminium ball but you won’t be able to see it after adding the chocolate.

    Once completely cooled use the leftover chocolate to draw on Pompompurin’s facial features and use it to attach the handle and ears. After attaching the handle and ears hold them in place for a moment for the chocolate to  harden. You can make a hat from the remaining chocolate but I made one from sliced chocolate.

    All done!

    1: Ingredients

    Chocolate        50g

    Gelatin               5g

    Fresh cream  180g

    Sugar-free cocoa powder    1 table spoon

    Sugar             2 table spoons

     

    2:

    Put all the ingredients into a pot and stir while cold. Heat and melt the chocolate, being careful not to boil it.  Add 1 tablespoon of water to the gelatin until it becomes soft and then add to the mixture and stir until dissolved.

    ☆Mix well while still cold, otherwise the powder will go lumpy.

     

     

    3:

    From step 2, filter the mix after the gelatin has dissolved.

     

    4:

    Pour the mixture from step 3 to a vat, let it cool down a bit and then refrigerate until firm.

    5:

    Slice a yellow peach to make Purin, by drawing the eyes, nose, and hat with chocolate.

    ☆Wipe any syrup off from the surface of the yellow peach with kitchen paper, and then draw the parts.

    Ears are connected to the face when the syrup dries, however you can also use some pasta to make it stronger.

     

    6:

    Put some cereal, whip cream, yellow peach and chocolate mousse of your choice in a cup, then place Purin on the top and you are done!

     

    Just a little bit of chocolate mousse makes the parfait simply scrumptious! The taste of yellow peach and crunchy cereal makes for a good combination♡
