Sakura mochi, Japan

This one is for sakura mochi fans!
It is a wonderful addition to the bag or mobile phone.

I can almost smell the sakura mochi already!!

For those who are unusure about what kind of smell I am talking about – sakura mochi are sweet pink rice cakes that are covered with a leaf of cherry blossom.

My favourite style of sakura mochi is the kansai style – what about you?
I have never tried making sakura mochi before but this clip on youtube shows how easy it can be with a 2 year old in full mochi swing!

I might have to give it a go too!!
