Poinsettia

B9330269811Z.1_20171118101738_000_G4BKBEKRJ.1-0It is the final month of the year and only one week’s left before a brand new year starts. It means the biggest event for most of the families in the UK is coming soon. It is of course Christmas! There are many things that relate to Christmas and one of them which is quite significant is a plant called Poinsettia. Poinsettia is originally for a warmer place but maybe because of its bold colour combination of vivid red and deep green it makes the most Christmassy looking decoration in your house.

Poinsettia

This is one of my ‘Wagashi’ Japanese sweets for December.

It is made of sweet called ‘Nerikiri’. The lower green part is coloured and flavoured with ‘Match’ green tea.

In order to make it look like the real plant I created many layers of leaves in red and green.

For the inside filling I matched Sweet Azuki (Red) bean paste centre which goes so well with Matcha.
