There are various ways of expressing ‘Sakura’ Cherry blossom as ‘Wagashi’ Japanese sweet. When I look back at my sweets in old photos I realise that the shape and colour have changed. There is nothing wrong in any sweet but all depends on how you feel and also what types of material and technique I want to try using at that time.
Sakura 🌸 Cherry Blossom
This is one of my Sakura sweets for this year.
I made in two colour types in white and pink.
What I focused on was creating the subtle colour and gradation.
As the centre filling I used ‘Sakura-an’ that is Sweet White Bean Paste flavoured with Cherry leaves which have a slightly salty herbal taste.
It is Vegan and Gluten free.
If there is any Sakura Blossoms left where you live, enjoy the lovely scenery!🌸
