Japanese Sweet Treats

these took 4 hrs to make

ok, thanks to Tomohachi, I've been surfing for more and more and MORE Japanese inspirations....and dug up (or did she give me this link?) this website....

i left it on my browser for almost a week before deciding to try it out today.

i think they don't look too terrible here, but they are. :( i definitely need more practice on these, and they're a PITA since they don't really 'stick' to the wire. so it seems i must make some prep work before starting on them the next time round.

since i rolled out too many 'dango', i decided to make some more wagashi. they don't sell very well although they get quite a lot of views, and finally, i sold 2 of the wagashi boxes last week! fueled by this encouragement, here i present my new wagashi..... and a mini flower 'dish'! i wanted to colour it but i don't think it's very nice yet (not very even)...

with the spare clay i made a 'chrysanthemum' wagashi....of course, this is going to be a mold for my future wagashi, they are so intensive to make X( i think it looks cute in the flower dish! like a little lotus flower?

the new dango look great IMO! i'm most satisfied with these. the sticks were fashioned from toothpicks, sanded, and i made them a little longer this time. i am still waiting on a reply, so i don't know if i should offer this on my etsy as yet...

ok i had food poisoning today, so i'm still feeling a little weak and nauseated....this is all i can manage for now...*whimpers and goes off to bed*


  1. Awww I am sorry that you are sick again. The gods are not good to you eh?

    I really like your new pieces. They are really chic and sleek. Keep up the good work!

  2. The dango looks sweet and yummy!!

    Me wanna eat them..

  3. Thanks Betty and Denise!

    yeah, and i got my monthly curse today too...probably explains the 'episodes' yesterday...i still am feeling nauseated though....couldn't make it to the post office today and i have 2 parcels to send :(

    BLEH, when will i ever be 'healthy' for a stretch longer than 2 weeks???

    *shakes fist at the sky*
    (opps, maybe i shouldn't do that haha)

  4. O dear, 2 attacks? Must be horrible. I can't imagine how you manage to sit up and type. Good thing you did cos I must tell you, your sweets look great. Have you ever eaten one of these? They look mochi-like. I also love all your bowl and plate. I have real life ones like those! Yes, Daiso!

  5. Cindy, you mentioned you got a new lightbox right? these photos look wonderful! and i love the creations too, they're all so sweet and pastel-ly! heehee. are they made with polymer clay or airdry?


Thank you for taking the time out to comment! :D
