Making Candy Sushi

Near my work, there’s an Asian Food store I often stop by to get snacks. While wandering the aisles, I saw a whole bunch of these Popin Cookin Kits. You could make tiny sized, candy versions of lots of different foods. There was donuts (which is next on my list to try), burgers and fries, pizza and so much more. The sushi one jumped out at me so I decided to try it first.

One Sunday afternoon, I sat down  and decided to try it out. I should point out that all the instructions and materials are in Japanese so I had no idea what it said. Luckily, there was also pictures on the instructions so I figured I could work it out. I decided to film me trying it as I thought it would make for a fun video!

Here’s the end results! They look pretty close to the real thing! I was so happy with how they ended up, I’m so keen to try out more.
