Kracie Japanese Sweets
I’m going totally off topic here because there is so little beauty news (until my email explodes at around 9am tomorrow morning!) but my current non-beauty obsession is the Kracie Japanese Sweets kits. They’re so bonkers but a lot of fun and just, well, amusing to do. I will warn you ahead that they don’t even taste very nice (to a western tongue).
Although the instructions come in Japanese – I had a super helper from Twitter who translated the back of the box for me (@nicintokyo) – they’re not really complicated. Once I’d understood via Nic that you just fill the empty portion of the carton with water and add the enclosed sachet of powder to
mix up a paste, I was off. Everything is included, from little spoons and icing bags to sprinkles and wafer cases (if needed). And, as you can see, there are plenty of diagrams to follow.
I started off with the ice cream one, and then had a very enthusiastic over-ordering session so now I have boxes and boxes of Kracie Japanese Sweets kits!
This is the inside of the Pizza kit – I wouldn’t start with this one because it’s quite complicated; I’m not looking forward to working this one out! If you do fancy trying Kracie Japanese Sweets, I’d start with the ice-cream set because it’s really easy and very, very cute.
The taste, by the way, is a bit sweet wallpaper paste. I know it’s probably a soy paste of some kind and it’s fairly safe to say that you can throw away the healthy-eating book on these, but it’s interesting to try, at least, and not exactly horrible.
The kits aren’t expensive, starting at a couple of quid, but mine took a long time to arrive in the post – about three weeks. If you want to try the ice-cream set, it’s HERE. Otherwise, just key in Kracie onto amazon.co.uk and everything available pops up.
