Candyswapper membership is coming along well. We have more than 100 members so far! Woohoo! I can’t wait for the first swap!
Okay, so to continue with sweets talk, here’s a book I’ve had for a really long time. It was stashed at my parents’ house, but I found it there the other day and stole it (I got permission from my mother). It’s all about Japanese sweets!

With instructions like these, I might even be able to figure out how to make some of this stuff:

Japanese sweets use a lot of pounded sweet rice and sweetened bean paste:

    Great timing on finding the book! That looks like sakura mochi in the back of the picture on the left and tomorrow is Hinamatsuri!

    I really wanted to join candyswappers, but my dentist said no. I feel like I have been to the dentist every week since the beginning of the year 🙁
    But, ichigo daifuku are good for you right??!

    now i have a craving for oshiruko or zenzai – especially since the weather’s been chilly (yes, the temperature does drop during the ‘winter’ months in hawaii)….

    My mom would make frozen sweet beans for a quick dessert when I was young…I was sooo good!

    Those look amazing! I’m always fascinated with Japanese presentation and the focus on flavor and texture.

    Is one of the candy swap themes going to be homemade candy? That would be so much fun.
