Sweet 🌹 Roses for Valentine’s Day

We are in February. It is the month of Valentine’s Day. So I wanted to make some suitable sweet for this particularly ‘Love’ month. In Japan by following an opportunist Chocolate company’s strategy Valentine’s day became the day that a girl gives chocolate to the boy she likes, but I am in London and I will just create something that shows love between people.

In England it does not matter if you are a man or a woman you can give flowers, a card or a book, anything to the person you love. However, I think the most common things people choose as a gift are flowers so I made a sweet in a shape of flower with Love.

Sweet Roses

When you express your love with flowers I believe Roses are the most obvious choice for many people. I had an idea to decorate my Japanese sweet as a rose for a white and used it for this month’s sweet.

Rose 4e

This is a ‘Nerikiri’ type of Japanese sweet and as the shape shows I added some Rose water to add some Rose scent to the flower part of this sweet.

Rose 11e

The bottom part of the sweet has a sweet white bean paste centre with Raspberry flavour.

Rose 12e

It is free from Gluten. Dairy and Egg.

Rose 7e

This sweet is available at Wasoukan Café (Notting Hill, London) until the end of February. Enjoy!! 😉

  1. Hi Mutsumi, I’m planning on doing a blog-post with Pink or Blue photos. Please let me know if I can use the first photo of the rose sweet for one of the pink photos. I would credit it to ‘Mutsumi’ and link back to your blog. Is this ok with you?
