‘Momo-no-Hana’ Mochi

I feel the sky looks brighter these days. The atmosphere is lighter and the air is warmer. I sense that the spring is coming nearer day by day. I even feel birds’ song sounds so much more cheerful. Maybe they are happy that spring is just around the corner.

Peach flowersAbout two weeks ago I posted that the 3rd of March was the Girls’ Day in Japan. The symbol of the Girls’ day is ‘Momo-no-Hana‘ Peach Flower, and this flower is also the sign for the arrival of spring. I made a Japanese sweet inspired by Peach flower for this month.

 

‘Momo-no-Hana’ (Peach Flower) Mochi

Momo no Hana Mochi 6-22

It is a ‘Mochi’ type sweet decorated with some pieces as petals for creating a Peach flower.

When it catches a sunlight it sparkles. It is because of the starch powder used for the outer layer. Very magical!

The very soft and delicate texture ‘Mochi’ layer is wrapping up ‘Shiro-An’ sweet White Bean Paste as the centre.
