Happy Girl's Day

Happy Girl's Day Peeps!  Did you have some mochi today?  

I actually made these tags by Sister Stamps over the holidays to share some "round" mochi with my co-workers but just ran out of time.   Rats.  So I thought I'd have to wait until next New Years to use them.   Then the light bulb went on.  Yah, I should make some mochi for Girl's Day instead.  

Here's a pix of Mieko for the girls and Hideo for the guy in our office.  I'm so glad Denise created an image of a little boy eating mochi too.  She and Jenny think of everything.



Here are the 7 tags...


Hmmm, I was stumped trying to find a recipe to make "round" mochi balls like they do in Japan so instead I decided to made Cascaron. YAH!!! Hee-hee.  Got the recipe from my co-worker.   It has mochiko, coconut flakes, sugar, and coconut milk.  I poked 6 inch wooden skewers thru the Cascaron and tied the tag with baker's twine.   Easy peasy and it was ono.  Oops, sorry, this is not a very good pix.

Okie dokie, enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by.

Interesting! I thought they were fish balls at first glance. I've never had them and they look delicious! Cute tags to go along with it.

Yum-yum....I want some! LOL! Both the tags and Cascaron are great treats for your co-workers. I've never heard of Cascaron but it sure sounds and looks delicious. They really match well with the SS stamp images.

Happy Girl's Day to you too! No I didn't have a chance to eat any mochi on Monday.

What a cute idea. What a special treat for your co-workers. I am sure that they enjoyed the Cascarons and loved the super cute tag. Wish I lived closer so I can try a piece or two of your homemade Cascarons. I don't think I've ever had one before.

Have a great day!
