|A pot of love|
Last year I posted some Valentine Vegan sushi and onigiri (like in this photos, you can find the link here), thinking of my husband being away in Japan for work. And this year, well, he is also going to be in Japan for Saint Valentine, again! So I decided to quickly make some biscuits with the kids before he left. Of course we made a few hearts, and decorated them with rolling fondant icing.
We also made other shapes:
And we tried out a little Japanese cookie stamp set that Arantxa got for Xmas from Yosuke. This is great, you just need to place in the hiragana symbols and compose the word/sentence that you like.
We started easy, with arigatou (thank you).
Actually, the set instructions were for using the stamps before baking the biscuits, so we tried, but after baking the biscuits it was a little hard to read the words. Maybe next time we will need to press the stamp harder, or bake the biscuits a bit more, so that the words are legible, but it works fine on icing, since you don't need to bake that! Anyway, here are the photos of the first experiment (I forgot to take one of the baked biscuits though!) to show you what the printing set looks like.
