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 CafΓ© (Notting Hill, London) until the end of February. Enjoy!! πŸ˜‰

  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?
