Popin’ Cookin’ Sushi
My friend Katie and I decided to experiment with the Sushi edition Popin’ Cookin’. Like most of the Popin’ collection, the sushi package is sweet and candy flavored rather than savory and realistic. It was a BLAST making all the different parts of the sushi and then putting them all together. The kit comes with a mini mixing spoon, the mixing “bowls”, “seaweed”, and powders to make rice, fish, and fish eggs. My favorite part of creating candy sushi was making the tiny fish eggs. You mix two powders with water separately and then with an eye dropper, you drop small portions of one liquid into the other causing it to instantly solidify in balls. Then you can scoop the eggs out of the solution and place them as a final touch on top of the rice and seaweed.
Here are some tips:
1. Look up the directions online. Since the whole package is in Japanese, it would make the process much easier to look up the English translation. Popin’ Cookin’ Sushi Instructions
2. Take your time. Buy a couple boxes and share them with your friends. Making this fun mini foods isn’t about the taste, it’s about the experience. Take your time and have fun watching each other’s reactions as you take your first bites.
3. HAVE FUN!! ☺️
