How to Make Gender Reveal Cake (Easy Butter Cream Cake) - Video Recipe

We don't have a custom to hold a baby shower party or make a gender reveal sweet in Japan, but I made this cake for those who requested ;)

If you think the butter cream is too heavy, you can of course use whipped cream (make shortcake) instead!

How to Make Shiratama Worms for Halloween - Video Recipe

This is a fun Wagashi (Japanese confectionery) idea for halloween!!!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owrIhzg424w

It tastes just like Dango (Japanese sweet dumplings).
I hope you like this idea :)



---------------------------------
Shiratama Worms

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 25min
Number of servings: 20 worms

Ingredients:
50g (1.8oz.) Shiratamako (lumpy glutinous rice flour)
1/2 tsp. Matcha green tea powder
50ml~ water
Kinako (soybean flour) *finely chopped nuts are okay
Kuromitsu (brown sugar syrup) *honey is okay

Directions:
1. Put Shiratamako, Matcha and water in a bowl and knead the dough with your hand until smooth. Adjust the texture by adding more Shiratamako or water until the dough turns as soft as your earlobe.
2. Form the dough into worm-like small strips.
3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Gently drop Shiratama worms in the boiling water. After a few minutes, Shiratama worms will float to the surface. Boil for another 1-2 minutes. Then remove from the boiling water and transfer into cold water (to cool and remove the slimy texture). After a minute, drain well.
4. Place Kinako and Kuromitsu on a plate or in a flat container, then place the worms on top.

*You can store the Dumplings in the freezer. When you eat, defrost at room temperature OR microwave OR cook in boiling water.
*You can store the Dumplings in the fridge for 3 hours but they can easily get hard, so I don't recommend it.
