Halloween at Hogwarts

Although I enjoyed more reading the Harry Potter books, I liked seeing the films as well. When a friend of mine visited me in London we decided to go to the Harry Potter Studio Tour.

Harry Potter Studio Tour

The studio is located at the outside of London. We had to take a short ride on the overground rail from Euston station and a bus. However, it was much closer that I had expected.

Halloween Black Cat🐱

I needed to make two Japanese sweets for October. It is quite normal that a typical Japanese sweet maker gets an idea for designing their sweet from some seasonal flower/plant/fruit or event occurring during the month. So what is the most significant thing I could use for designing this month’s sweet?

As a ‘Wagashi’ Japanese sweet designer who lives abroad a big event in October is Halloween. I had already decided one of the two sweets would be a Mochi Ghost, but I wanted to make another one in the Halloween theme too. When I was searching images of this theme it became obvious that the second sweet has to be a Halloween cat. It is not an any cat, it has to be a Black Cat.

So, these are my Black Cat sweets for this Halloween.

Can You See Who is Hiding?

Something is hiding in the darkness.

It is someone who likes going into a small box, who gets afraid of a sudden appearance of a cucumber and who people started to think could be liquid… However, more importantly it is one of the main characters for the coming Halloween.

Can you guess who it is? 🐈

Halloween Mochi GhostπŸ‘»is Coming!

Oh, we are in October now. It is the month that Halloween is coming! Last year I made two types of Japanese sweets for this Halloween month. One of them was Jack-o’-Lantern and the other one was Mochi Ghost. Actually I started making a Ghost like sweet two years ago and then last year’s Ghost was my revenge creation because the first one was not that a great Ghost. I made a blog post and tweeted about it with photos and then actually it got a good reaction from people. I received many great comments regarding the sweet (Thak you!). The Ghost sweet was also served at Wasoukan CafΓ© (Notting Hill, London) and the manager told me that that sweet was the best seller amongst all the sweets they had sold last year. I started thinking that I should make this Ghost sweet as my yearly traditional sweet in this season so that I created another one for this year’s version.

I made a little similar one in order to meet the people’s expectation but slightly different Mochi Ghost again. This time it is vertically standing 3D Ghost.

Meeting Green Parrot in Kensington Gardens

I visited Kensington Gardens in September and noticed there were so many Sweet Chestnuts on branches. They must be falling down to the ground by now and ready to eat.

While looking around in the park at the little details, I noticed something camouflaging so well in big trees.

Diana Garden in Kensington Gardens

I mentioned that Kensington Gardens is famous as the place where the fictious character Peter Pan lived but it is also famous for the place Princess Diana lived after her divorce with Prince Charles. When I visited Kensington Gardens, it was also a memorial period of 20 years since her death. Apart from looking for Peter Pan another main purpose of my visit to this park was seeing the memorial garden of Kensington Palace which was specially planted for this occasion.

Kensington Palace is located very west part of Kensington Gardens. Several bunches of flowers were placed at the front gate of the Palace. If it was on the actual day of her memorial I am sure there would have been more flowers.
