|The fleeting beauty of the cherry blossom. Is it wrong that I want to eat it?|
|The wabi-sabi, bittersweet beauty of spring...in doughnut form.|
|Jellies with flowers and butterflies suspended inside. Somewhere, a pineapple Jello mold weeps.|
|Under all that cream, sakura chocolate petals, and petal-shaped berries is the softest sponge cake ever, layered with berries and more sakura cream. Zen restraint is overrated.|
The array of things to whip up at home is endless, too. I made it home without the salt and the rice, but I think I will be back for the jam, which has petals in it and makes a lovely hot drink when you add water. So glamorous--the kind of thing I would put on my J. Lo-esque contract rider. You know, white sofa, Diptyque candles, and cherry blossom jam tea in my dressing room. And no one looks me directly in the eye.
|Sakura jam/tea--very post-Cosmopolitan.|
