My baby sister Nina turns 17 tomorrow!!! It’s craziness yo! D: Anywhozits I am unable to attend her birthday party this year. Plain and simple it just isn’t going to work out so….
Imma gonna surprise her. Shh… it’s a secret. :3
I purchased neon pink candles…
Neon Pink Candles…
am adding more sprinkles to the cake ’cause there’s pink in them…
More sprinkles couldn’t hurt right?
and I bought a small cupcake cake! (Once I saw this one I was sold! So convenient!)
Add sprinkles to cupcake cake and presto!
The idea is to zoom over there before work, gallumph into her room, wake her up, sing happy birthday and take a cupcake for the road. Yep. Nothing can possibly go wrong with this plan.
Wish me luck~!
Thanks for reading!
Went to China Capital Arts yesterday at Southland Mall and picked up some Japanese sweets! Starting from the top left: Strawberry Pocky, Tropical Pocky (Mango Pineapple Flavored), a premium type Chocolate Pocky, Raspberry Ramune Soda, Choco Baby candies, and Midi Chocolate Pocky. Yum! :3
Today when I had the munchies I pulled out my stash of Yan Yan!
Yan Yan in Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry~! :3
Purchased from my local grocery store for $1 each, Yan Yan is a Japanese stick snack that you dip into frosting and has some nonsensical words/sayings on the cookie sticks. There are more variations and flavors of this snack than what I was able to find, but you can learn more about Yan Yan on Wikipedia or by typing it into your favorite web browser. 🙂
Ah, mochi icecream, how I love you so! I’ve mentioned it in my blog posts Mochi Icecream! and Japanese Snacks and a Daruma but here is an actual video on how to make it by the Youtube channel CookingWithDog. I haven’t tried making it myself – though I’m really tempted!
Does anyone know where to get sweet rice flour locally?
Nothing says “Summer” quite like a cherry dipped icecream cone~!
Went to China Capital Arts today at our local mall and discovered a new item – mochi icecream! 😀 Available in Black Sesame, Red Bean, Green Tea, Chocolate, and Vanilla. I chose vanilla and Maru chose green tea (as pictured). Mine was really yummy and finished it before I even thought about taking a picture! Thank goodness Maru is a slow eater and that Nina had her camera along~!♥
