Childish, maybe, but did the picture make you smile?  I think that’s a great start to a new year.

These are gyeong dan (경단), a kind of rice cake made with sweet rice flour, shaped like little balls, boiled, and often rolled in various powders/flakes.  Here they are rolled in mung bean (녹두; nok du) powder.  The face pieces are picked from a mulling spice packet.  The snowman’s hair is inspired by the unofficial style for cooks extrapolated from the show Top Chef and the snow-woman’s head pieces by Princess Leia cake and ‘sheep head‘ (양머리; yang meo ri).  They are filled with toasted walnuts, dates soaked in rum and sugar.

It is really snowing outside…Happy New Year!
