Fluffy chocolate buttercream is an ideal frosting for cake decorators who are health conscious. Cream cheese, Greek yogurt, unsweetened (ideally organic) cocoa blend with butter and vanilla to create a frosting ideal for piping. Of course, you can simply slather the stuff on any sweet, too!
The matcha green tea flavor boldly steps forward in this dense, moist and wonderful cake. Luxuriously laden with chocolate (all dairy free, gluten free and vegan), no one will ever know this is not a “regular” whipped-creamy sort of chocolate frosting.
A distinct Asian nashi pear flavors this bread...The almond Demerara topping is baked golden brown and adds an elegant kind of candy crunch.

As Pocky, Oreos are tantalizing treats in any season; I whipped them into chocolate cupcakes. And what tray could be more tantalizing than one made out of cake? Chocolate cake smothered with Morello cherry buttercream to be specific. Enjoy!
The cake recipe is adapted from the Pillsbury Softassilk flour box.
A fresh cherry kiss is discovered in the first spoonful of the ice cream. A smoky aftertaste similar to aged wine follows.
Inspired by the vanilla bean ice cream recipe in Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams At Home.
A sip of celebration is discovered in this ice cream based cherry blossom saketini!
Ninja Note: You deserve the few extra pennies cost of premium cherry blossom sakura tea.
The Ninja Baker's Berry Delicious Muffin is moist and dense with berries which tickle the palate with pleasure. A trace of ginger lingers on the tongue. (If a stronger ginger taste is preferred, increase the suggested measurement.) Both the muffin and bento are happy-making ways to slip into any season.
The Beefy Crumble when sautéed with the soy sauce and grapeseed oil tastes similar to a sweet sausage. (The good news is the No-Beef Beefy Crumble is gluten-free and contains no cholesterol!) The soy sauce contrasts nicely with the Beefy Crumble.
If you can get a hold of Satsuma Mandarin balsamic vinegar, do so. The citrus flavor enhances the squeeze of lemon juice in the crumble.
This recipe makes enough for one generous serving for a donburi rice bowl and one mini Japanese bento lunch box.
Sophisticated adult vodka and sake tastes say hello to kid cookies. The matcha green tea latte gives a shy nod of an aftertaste. (If you like matcha green tea, increase the powder mix by a tablespoon or two.)
