hello kitty cookies, cute food biscuit sanrio recipe

† How were you introduced to the art of “cute cooking”?
Well, style appreciation is always present in daily life choices. I always liked Hello Kitty, and when I first saw the HK Cookie Moulds I was hooked! Now I have Jelly and Chocolate Moulds, Egg Moulds and Sushi Cut Shapers.

† What inspired your cute creation?
*What I love about these moulds was the fact that the cookie result was a 3D shape. It’s interesting how both children and adults love them!

† How did you make it? 
*I used a Regular Biscuit Dough, you can use these ingredients: 1 cup butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 cup sugar, 2 teaspoon baking powder, 1 large egg, 3 cups of flour. Then I put it in the oven(preheat to 400ª F). for about 6-7 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned.

 If I knew about kawai food when I was a child , I might be less picky at eating.

† How were you introduced to the art of “cute cooking”?
I bought a Darth Vader cake pan off of ebay (just look for “Wilton cake pan” or “Wilton character pans”, there are tons!).  I kept making that cake and decorating it, getting better at it, and it all just went from there!  
† What inspired your cute creation? 
It was inspired by a very cute kids show called Yo Gabba Gabba, if you google it you can see all sorts of adorable clips.  This cake was inspired in particular by a really funny song from the show called “Party in My Tummy”!
† How did you make it? 
 All decorations are made with fondant.  The sides are iced with chocolate frosting, which I then painted with gel food dye.  Gel food dye is more concentrated so you don’t have to use nearly as much as the kind you would buy in the super market.  That is also the type of dye I use to color the fondant.  I then just molded the little characters and painted on their faces!  The top of the cake is also fondant, you put some corn starch down so it doesnt stick to the surface, and with a smooth rolling pin roll it out just as you would dough.  
 † Any other comments or tips? 
Fondant is fun to work with and easy, but there are a few things that will make it easier.  I’ve seen some sites say to use powdered sugar so that the fondant doesn’t stick to you or your working surface…but sugar is sugar and gets sticky, so if it’s too hot or if your skin is too warm I find it just makes things worse.  Corn starch is definitely the way to go, it never gets sticky!  Figuring that out helped me greatly.  Never get fondant wet, and on hot days your fondant can “sweat” if you put it in the fridge and then take it out again, so beware of that.

Gel food coloring is great, you can get it lots of places and online as well.  Just put a tiny bit on the fondant and knead it in until is spread evenly.  Luster dust is a powdered version of food dye and can be used either on its own, or moistened with lemon extract and painted on with a paint brush.  You can get luster dust online as well.
Also, I have never used it but I have heard that Wilton Fondant is pretty much the grossest ever, haha.  I use Satin Ice and I think it tastes pretty good!
Thanks Carmina, this was so much fun! You have an awesome site, I enjoyed looking at it!

CUTE RUBBER DUCKY CUPCAKES: FONDANT ANIMALS, CUTE FOOD DECORATION ART.

Sylvia & Howard

† How were you introduced to the art of “cute cooking”?
Cupcakes are all about being creative and cute! So we always try to make our cupcake decorations look cute and look good.
† What inspired your cute creation? 
Everything inspires our cute creations. For example, we browse the internet, watch movies, and walk around shops. We may see a cute illustration on a birthday card or a design from a book. Yet, most of the time we try to come up with our own characters if possible.

† How did you make it? 
The rubber ducky decorations on the cupcakes are made from fondant. You will need:
- Fondant (you can buy them white or pre-coloured)
- Gel Colours (if you have white fondant, use gels to dye colour)
- Edible Food Writers (optional)
- Tear-shape or Water drop shape cutter (or cut them free hand)
So what we did was:
1. Dye the fondant (use a toothpick, dip it into the gel and then transfer that to the fondant, don’t double dip, use a new toothpick all the time).
2. Knead the fondant until the colour is even.
3. Mold the fondant into the body of the duck (this took the most time getting the shape right)
4. Roll the fondant flat. Then we used a tiny tear-shaped/water-drop shape cutter to cut out the wings.
5. Roll fondant into a ball shape for the duck’s head.
6. Assemble the rubber ducky using tiny dabs of water to adhere the head and wings on the body.
7. Taking orange coloured fondant, make a tiny triangle for the duck’s beak.
8. Attach the beak onto the head.
9. Let the rubber ducky dry.
10. Using edible food writers, draw on two eyes for the rubber duck. Have the fondant rubber duck dry on powdered sugar before topping it on a cupcake!
† Any other comments or tips?
Find a material that you’re comfortable working with and simply be creative. The best part about working with food is, if you don’t like it, eat it, and start again! No one will ever know!

HOW TO USE

Write down the name of a recipe and close the book. When you open the book, a recipe from the realm of the gods will appear.

THERE ARE 3 CATCHES…

- One, only those who touch the cookbook can see Kojin and use the cookbook.

- Two, you can only make one entry in the cookbook every 24 hours.

- Three, once a recipe appears, you have 24 hours to gather the ingredients and successfully make it. If you don’t, you will turn into a hungry ghost.

2 black cod steaks

4 tablespoons brown miso paste

1 tablespoon organic honey

1 tablespoon mirin (sweet sake or Japanese cooking wine)

1 tablespoon black sesame seeds

- Combine the ingredients, spread on both sides of the cod and marinate for 30 minutes.

- Preheat oven to 425 F. Sprinkle the cod with the sesame seeds. Wrap in foil and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the center is cooked.

6 fresh shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons tamari (wheat-free Japanese soy sauce)

1 cup seaweed shirataki noodles

1 tablespoon oil

JAPANESE COOKING SHOW VIDEO: UNUSUAL, STRANGE ICE CREAM RECIPE.

April 11, 2009 at 07:25 | Posted in The Book: Cute Yummy Time, Videos | 1 Comment

Introducing my new Goth Cooking Show video series – DEATH COOKBOOK! Please subscribe to my YouTube channel to catch more episodes! 

 “Hello. I am Kojin, the Japanese Kitchen God. You can see me because you touched the Death Cookbook.”

HOW TO USE…
Write down the name of a recipe and close the book. When you open the book, a recipe from the realm of the gods will appear.

THERE ARE 3 CATCHES…
† One, only those who touch the cookbook can see Kojin and use the cookbook.
† Two, you can only make one entry in the cookbook every 24 hours.
† Three, once a recipe appears, you have 24 hours to gather the ingredients and successfully make it. If you don’t, you will turn into a hungry ghost.

BLACK SESAME SEED ICE CREAM RECIPE
3/4 cup heavy cream
3 egg yolks
1/2 cup organic honey
3/4 cup 2% organic milk
3 tablespoons kuro goma (black sesame seeds)

† Roast the sesame seeds in a pan. Let cool and then coarsely grind.
† Heat the milk in a saucepan until it almost boils. Reduce heat to low.
† Stir together the egg yolks and honey. Add one tablespoon of the milk to the egg mixture to temper it (warm the mixture up to the same temperature as the milk so that the eggs dont scramble).
† Add the egg mixture and sesame seeds to the milk. Cook on low heat until it is slightly thickened and coats the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes.
† Transfer to a large container and let cool.
† Lightly whip the cream and add it to the sesame-milk mixture. Refrigerate for a few hours.
† Place the container in the freezer. Every few hours, remove the mixture and stir it vigorously with a wooden spoon to break up the ice crystals. Return the mixture to the freezer and repeat until smooth and frozen.
