Japanese Sweets

Filed under: — Andy @ 4:40 am

I have always loved Japanese sweets. I have made various sweets on my own using the internet and books, but have never before tried to make Jyo-Namagashi. They are one of the most difficult and time consuming sweets to make, and once you make the base materials shaping them into works of art is the greatest challenge. I finally got a chance to attempt to make them when my friend invited me to a Japanese sweets making class.
It was a lot more difficult to wrap the inside anko inside the colored anko than I had imagined, but after that I think I was a natural. Not to brag.. but my sunflower looked a lot better than most of the other ladies in the class. The teacher and other students all looked at my sweets in amazement. :)
