Christmas Rice Cake

  Merry Christmas! Today, I present my Christmas rice cake to you.  Although I started with a grand vision of creating a whole Santa’s village, after a tree and Santa, I came to senses and accepted the lack of my skill, patience, time and space (on the cake to place a whole village).  Still, in keeping with the spirit of this blog, it is made with natural ingredients and coloring – green from green tea powder, red from a...

Remember that these are mass produced for sale at chain bakeries, ice cream parlors and doughnut shops. And they...

Black Sesame and Chestnut Scones
