Don’t bake it, make it


Many Japanese apartments don’t have ovens. One way to ‘get baking’ at home is by picking up a sewing needle and buying a felt ‘cake-baking’ kit from a craft store. You can make macaroons, Mont Blanc cakes, donuts, waffles, pancakes, strawberry shortcakes… cakes almost as cute as the plush made by My Paper Crane. I bought a kit to make a choco banana cake and strawberry tart. Following the Japanese instructions will be interesting but gambarimasu!??! (I’ll try my best)
