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.

I also tried decorating it with a cherry blossom flower that I made with nerikiri dough to give it a springtime feel♡
