Osakana Kuwaeta Doraneko - Video Recipe

Hello! This video will show you a kawaii (cute) idea of presenting Wagashi (Japanese sweets)! I am using Dorayaki - consists of two small pancakes with azuki (sweet red bean paste) filling and Taiyaki - fish-shaped sweet cake with azuki filling.


Wagashi sounds pretty formal but it is often eaten at home in Japan because it's healthy.

Anyways, do you know what "Osakana Kuwaeta Doraneko" means? Osakana is a polite way of saying fish. Kuwaeta is eating. And Doraneko is a stray cat.

So, it means "stray cat eating fish".

I think this phrase is pretty known to all Japanese since it's the words from Sazae-san's song, if you know ;)

Osakana Kuwaeta Doraneko

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: approx. 15min
Number of servings: 1

1&1/2 dorayaki
1 taiyaki
chocolate pen

1. Set the chocolate pen in a cup of hot water for a few minutes.
2. Meanwhile, cut 1/2 portion of the dorayaki and make 2 cat ears.
3. On the serving plate, open one round dorayaki, put taiyaki in between the pancakes, and place the ears.
4. Cut the tip of the chocolate pen and draw a cat face.
5. Put in the freezer for a few sec and harden the chocolate.

Anyways, I hope my voice and all the sounds are clear at a comfortable volume... I am looking for a good microphone which has a air noise control (I don't know how to explain it, though) So, I care the noise more than what I'm speaking out, which is kind of pain in the neck...
