25.March.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.

 

With spring break on the horizon, let’s make some scones from hot cake mix! In this article, you’ll learn how to make “Korilakkuma Scones.”

 

A lot of people have also asked to show the face-drawing process, so I’d like to include that this time too!

Kaoriさん レシピ コリラックマスコーン

1: Ingredients

200g hot cake mix

2tbsp vegetable oil

2tbsp milk

2tbsp fresh cream

☆You can use milk as a substitute if you don’t have fresh cream.

☆If you add all of the milk and fresh cream and it seems difficult to mix, add a little more milk and fresh cream little by little.

2: Throw all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix.

3: After mixing, it’s time to shape the face. At this point, after molding them into round balls, flatten the bottom part of the face.

 

☆”They look beautiful, they’re all equal and uniform!” People have complimented me for that. When I’m making the shape, I plan it out and endeavour to create one shape across the board. After getting the quantity right with the ingredients, I think it’s good to divide them all into individual pieces.

 

Scones are bumpy on the surface, so they’re easy to mold♡

4: Next, attach the ears. For the ears, I used mix that I had separated for the face in step 3. Each ear uses 2g of mix, so take that and make them round.

5: Put them into a 180℃ pre-heated oven and lower the temperature to 130-140℃. Baked for 20-25 minutes.

 

Once they have colour on them, dash on some almond oil partway through the cooking.

 

They are fully baked in the photo above.

6: Now it’s time to decorate the face. First, use a pink chocolate pen to squeeze onto the ears, and white for the mouth.

7: Then draw on the eyes. Try to maintain a balance between the left and right eye – make them line up.

8: Once the mouth you drew in step 6 has set, use a black chocolate pen to draw on a nose and the mouth details.

    Maaya Sakamoto | Comment

    “I asked the director how he wanted me to portray the last scene of the first film and how best to connect it to the second. I gave seriously thought to the song’s role as a main theme song and came up with this song, ‘Dokuhaku.’ When you see that final scene in the theatre, I’m sure you’ll be staring at the credit roll unable to even stand as you process the many different emotions swirling inside Bedivere. I think the song we’ve written is a suitable match for that final moment. Be sure to experience it in the theatre.”
