Uiro - Archived -

I decided to try my hand at Traditional Japanese Sweet. Uiro is a type of Japanese steamed cake made of rice flour and sugar. It is similar to mochi.

Originally I wanted to do a Japanese style Tea Party for some friends, but things fell through and it didn’t happen (sad face). But do look forward to pictures of a western style tea party that I hosted over the summer!

I would like to thank my cousin Sushi, her brother was excellent in my Chocopops recipe, so a round of applause for my wonderful cousins for braving my camera!
