Apart from Grape Mochi the sweet I have created for my September Japanese sweet. I used a perennial flower called Japanese Anemone as the inspiration for this time. Japanese Anemone get lots of flowers around this time of a year which has either pink or white petals with a greenish yellow round centre. When the flower’s gone this round part stays and it looks like small a pom-pom on a stick sticking out from the plant.

I chose Japanese Anemone as the design for this month’s sweet not just because it is a very seasonal flower in gardens right at the moment but also it has the word ‘Japanese’ in its name. What else is more suitable for this occasion than that.

I made this Japanese Anemone with traditional Japanese sweet ‘Nerikiri’.

Nerikiri is made of White Bean, Sugar and a little bit of Rice Flour. It has such a simple three ingredients but it gets a marzipan like texture and can be made into any complicated shapes.

The centre of the sweet is soft and smooth ‘Koshi-an’ sweet Aduki (Azuki) bean paste.

    • Thank you very much!๐Ÿ˜Š When I find some beautiful flower or interesting object I try to imagine how I can recreate the shape in my head. However, the best way to learn I think is just make anything you think it would work and make mistakes and try again! “Failure is the best teacher”. That’s true!! ๐Ÿ˜‰.
