WHERE TO BUY?
I bought this one at candysan.com (link to product) for €2,52 only (excl. shipping costs) a very cheap price i would say. They offer lots of other popin' cookin' kits if you are interested (link to assortment). You can also purchase it at oyatsucafe.com (link to product), napajapan.com (link to product) and at jbox.com (link to product). After comparing the prices, I noticed that candysan.com offers the kit for the cheapest price.
Everything is written in Japanese so all I did was follow the pictures. The packaging is really to die for! It's so cuteeee! After I created this kit, I saw that Oyatsu cafe has an English translation of the description on their website (why didn't i see that earlier?) - go to the English translation. The order in this blogpost is slightly different from theirs, but both are possible.
When you remove it out of the box it looks like this (see picture below). Don't throw away the packaging just yet, because you will need it! Grab a pair of scissors and cut off the ends of the packaging.
It contains a plastic tray, dark brown soft candy in a plastic packaging, a dropper, ice cream spoon and 6 sachets of powder.
HOW TO - STEP BY STEP
First of all put some water at the water section in the container, wash your hands, the dropper and spoon first before you use it.
1. Create rice. Put some water in the oval shaped container "1", up to the oval-shaped limit line inside.
2. Now, open the rice powder, the blue sachet and put it inside the oval shaped container "1".
3. Mix it well with the spoon until it looks like rice.
4. Use the wrapping and create nigiri rice, do this 7 times, so you can create 7 sushi's later on.
5. Make egg roll! Put water in the container with the whirly shape using the dropper, up to the limit line inside.
6. Add the egg-roll making powder, which is the yellow sachet.
7. Mix this well using the spoon and spread it out flat.
8. Make tuna! Put water in the container with wavy lines using the dropper, up to the limit line inside.
9. Add the tuna making powder, which is the pink sachet.
10. Mix this well using the spoon and spread it out flat.
11. Put water into the container marked with an "A" up to the limit line inside.
12. Grab the green powder and put it inside the container where it says "A".
13. Mix this well with the spoon until it has dissolved nicely. It will turn into a light blue color.
14. Put water into the container marked with an "B" up to the limit line inside.
15. Grab the orange powder and put it inside the container where it says "B".
16. Mix this well with the spoon until it has dissolved nicely. It will turn into an orange color, just like real salmon eggs.
17. Create salmon eggs! Use the dropper to suck the liquid in section "B" up and drop it softly into the "A" container from the height of about 3cm.
18. Make seaweed. Grab the dark brown soft candy and split this in two.
19. Spread it out on the plastic wrapping where you can find the size.
20. Put it around the nigiri rice and add the salmon eggs on top of it by using the spoon.
21. Grab your spoon and cut the egg roll in half and put it on the nigiri rice.
22. Grab your spoon and cut the tuna in half and put it on the nigiri rice.
24. Make soya sauce. Put some water with the dropper in the container where it says "1" and add the brown sachet.
25. Mix it well and voila, your soya sauce is done. You can either dip your sushi's in it or put it on top of the egg roll by using the dropper.
Ain't these CUTEEEE ^o^??? I had so much fun making these and they look so tiny and adorable hahah. This is candy so everything is edible. The taste of everything is very similar, it's very sweet, the structure is like jelly and it has a bit of a chemical taste to it >.<". I loved eating the salmon eggs the most, they really pop in your mouth. During the whole process I started to get a light headache because my whole room had a very sweet scent because of this @_@". It was fun creating this though, but I wouldn't purchase this again since the taste is just mehhh, it's a bit too sweet and chemical for me.
WOULD YOU GIVE THIS A TRY?
