3:Now, let’s make the layers. You need to firm-up the layers one at a time. The order of the layers should be – 1. Mattcha 2. Plain 3. Pink. First pour in the mattcha layer and firm-up this layer by leaving it in the frig for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Next, pour in the plain-colored layer and put this in the frig. In the same way pour in the pink layer.

☆Be careful not to pour the next layer on top of the previous layer too early. If you do, the layers will mix together and a well-defined 3-layer pudding will not be possible.

4:Let’s make the shiratamas while firming process of the milk pudding is proceeding. Put a piece of silken layer inside a bag of shiratama powder. (water is not necessary)

 

☆The shiratams you will make will not get hard since water is not used.

  • How to make a KITTY-chan chocolate parfait!

    28.January.2018 | FEATURES / FOOD

    With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s recipe series! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

     

    In this article, I will introduce to you how to make a KITTY-chan chocolate parfait which you can easily make with ready-made ingredients.

     

    7371367748423.LINE

    1: Ingredients

    Chocolate mousse’s ingredients

    Chocolate 150g

    Fresh cream (animal derived) 200g

    Roll cake (ready-made product), vanilla, chocolate

    Coating chocolate

    strawberries

    Blueberries

    Granola

    Chocolate pen

    Decoration fresh cream

    Lollipop candy’s stick

     

    Parfait glass

    ※The lollipop stick was bought at Seria.

     

     

    7371367858496.LINE

    2:First make the chocolate moouse.

    ※Shred the chocolate

    I used diced chocolate, but you can use other kinds of chocolate such as bar chocolate. Make sure to shred it well so that it will melt smoothly,

    ➁ Warm up the fresh cream (100g)

    ➂ Beat the fresh cream (100g)

    ※Add ➀ and ➁ and mix them together well.

    ➄Now, add ➂ to  ➃ and mix them together well.

    Place the ingredients into a container. Since this mousse will become firm in a short time, you don’t have to put it into a refrigerator.

     

     

    7371367931458.LINE

    3:Let’s make the lollipops.

    ➀ Put the ready-made vanilla roll cake inside a bowl and mix them together well.

    ※You usually mix fresh cream with the sponge cake to make a lollipop, but such work is unnecessary because ready-made lollipops include fresh cream.

    ➁Put the ingredients inside the KITTY-chan mold.

    ➂Place the sticks on top of the KITTY-chan forms and make them hard by putting them inside a refrigerator.

    (Make sure that the sticks do not wobble.)

    ➃Dip the KITTY-chan forms into chocolate and wait until the chocolate gets hard.

     

     

    7371367987525.LINE

    4:Draw KITTY-chan’s face using the chocolate pen.

    ※Draw the face after the coating chocolate becomes hard.

     

     

    7371368027878.LINE

    5:Decorate the parfait.

    Put the chocolate roll cake cut into small pieces on the bottom of the glass and layer all the ingredients -the chocolate mousse, strawberries, blueberries and granola.

     

    Whatever you prefer but, I don’t put the fresh cream inside the glass since the taste of chocolate mousse is thick.

     

    7371368087168.LINE

    After making the layers, place the fresh cream, strawberries and KITTY-chan’s lollipop on top of the parfait. Voila, your KITTY-chan parfait is complete!

     

    7371368138118.LINE

    Here is a chocolate parfait that you can make with ready-made products in a short amount of time.

    Of course, the parfait tastes terrific even if you do not put a lollipop on top of it.

  • Kaori’s easy recipe – learn to make a character-themed chocolate gateau!

    20.January.2018 | FEATURES / FOOD

    With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s recipe series! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish. Today we’ll be looking at a recipe perfect for Valentine’s Day – a super delicious chocolate gateau!

     

    1: Ingredients

    7324870076152.LINE

    ・15cm diameter round bowls

    ・ 200g coverture chocolate

    ・ 150g unsalted butter

    ・ 4 egg yolks

    ・ 50g salt

    ・ 25g wheat flour

    ・ 25g Van Houten cocoa powder

    ・ 4 egg whites

    ・ 30g granulated sugar

     

     

    2: Mix the egg yolks and sugar well.

    7324870131165.LINE

     

    3: Melt the coverture chocolate and unsalted butter in a bowl over hot water. Add this to the egg yolks and sugar and mix.

    7324870182969.LINE

     

    4: ① Whisk the egg whites and granulated sugar until soft peaks form and add a small amount of this to the mixture made in step 3.

    ② Sieve the wheat flour and cocoa powder into the mixture.

     ③ Add the remaining egg whites into the mix and stir well.

    ④ Spread the mixture into a baking tin. (As the mixture will rise then sink whilst being cooked, it is ok to fill the tin up to 9/10 of the way.

     

    7324870245584.LINE

     

    5: Put the cake mix into the oven at 170℃ for 10 minutes and then turn it down to 160℃ for 20 – 25 minutes. After rising, a dip will form in the centre of the cake.

    7324870290710.LINE

     

    6: Make the decoration cookies for the top of the cake. (See Kaori’s Hello Kitty Halloween Cookies recipe: https://www.moshimoshi-nippon.jp/65290 )

    You will need 50g of icing sugar and 9g of egg white to make the icing for the cookies. Add the egg whites bit by bit to the icing sugar whilst mixing well. After mixing, you can start decorating the cookies. (Today I’ve put the icing on using my finger).

    Once the icing has hardened, melt a chocolate pen (or any kind of chocolate) and use a toothpick to draw Hello Kitty’s nose and eyes in the centre of each cookie. Fill the hole in the centre of your chocolate gateau 8/10 of the way with fresh cream and then add the cookies and some strawberries to the top to decorate.

    7324870378613.LINE

    7324870465362.LINE

    ※ A few important points*

    1. The cake will still be delicious after 3 days.

    2. This cake is best enjoyed at room temperature. If you store it in the fridge, I recommend leaving it out at room temperature about an hour before serving.

    3. If you are going to give this to somebody as a gift, then I recommend either avoiding the fresh cream or decorating just before presenting to the recipient. Today I’ve put my cake in a gift box purchased from Seria.
