Wagashi- Osakana Kuwaeta Doraneko

ochikeron's picture
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 ;)
Directions

MAKING
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
