Keppi the Kappa Cupcakes from Sarazanmai

Sarazanmai is a show full of surprises. I mean, just looking at the concept art in the thumbnail, you’d think Keppi the Kappa would just be a cute little guy, full of fun and surprises, RIGHT? WRONG, so wrong, so so so wrong wrong wrong. I made these cute cupcakes BEFORE I saw episode one,…

Fruits Basket Mochi from Fruits Basket

Fruits Basket recently started airing! As I was watching, I thought the little zodiac figurines would make for great daifuku, so that’s what I decided to do this week. Daifuku, if ya didn’t know, are little balls of mochi normally filled with fruit, red bean paste, or some other kind of filling. I’ve made daifuku before,…

Dimple Jello Dessert from Mob Psycho 100

Dimple from Mob Psycho 100 claims he doesn’t taste very good, but I beg to differ. Following up on my gluten-free Mob-themed curry from a few weeks ago, I wanted to hit hard with a Dimple dessert. The best thing I could think to represent his gelatinous, goopy form of spiritual energy was Jello. As unimpressive…

Strawberry Shortcake from Kaguya-Sama: Love is War!

When I was in high school, I never dated anyone.

However, I was not spared from internal struggle…

Crunchyroll #120: Roast Beef from Meiji Tokyo Renka!

Meiji Tokyo Renka has started off with a bang, and by that, I mean that it’s basically a cross between 1800s Japan and Ouran High Host Club with roast beef. And you know what? I’m here for it. What’s not to love? “Insert self here” girl gets transported to the past and immediately meets a harem of…

Crunchyroll #119: Potato Snacks from Memoria Freese!

Some people ask Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? but I ask Is it wrong to put whipped cream on top of croquettes? Personally, I don’t think so. Let’s look at the facts: Mashed potatoes = amazing and fluffy. Whipped cream = amazing and fluffy. One is salty, the other…
