I don't like baking (they say baking is like science, and despite both my parents being chemistry PhDs and my little sister starting a chemistry PhD program next year, I'm not a science person), but I enjoy making artistic food, so I really enjoy the Japanese Valentine tradition. I love giving gifts (sometimes to the point that people think I'm weird, oops) and I have fun making cute designs, so I really look forward to this time of year… even if no one gives me anything for White Day, sigh.
This year, what with my eye surgery and miscellaneous life problems, I was a bit rushed, but I still managed a few different things!
This was my first batch, for my junior high! I didn't have time to make a real who set for this school, so they each just got one of these marshmallow cups, but I think they came out pretty good anyway!
Using the tiny silver pearls is really awful XD; But I managed somehow.
Next, for my elementary school, I made rose-white chocolate and dark chocolate layer tarts!
I really enjoy the heart-shaped tart cups. They're pretty good for store-bought crust, too!
Here's the finished product! I was pretty happy with them ♥
I supplemented them with round marshmallow cups~ I had a lot of marshmallows sitting around, ahaha.
This is the packaged product! There were really cute baggies at the hyakuen this year XD;;
I'm planning on making more for the end of the year to give to the teachers as a "thank you for putting up with me for a year" sort of gift, so hopefully I'll have more to show off soon! The end of the year, among other things, sucks, but I like to look on the bright side. ♥
