Thank you Kanchana.  I am always happy to hear "happy birthday", thank you @Kanch J   I wish you have a chance to taste real Chirashi-zushi

This is fantastic! I almost picked up sushi for dinner tonight and now I so wish I had. I'm ready to pick up my sticks and dig in. Well done!

Thank you @Sweet Doughsigns   I am glad that lots of people know about our food.  😍

Wow, Ryoko! You keep outdoing yourself! Where will you take us?! This is just phenomenal! So many techniques... brilliant! Thanks for all the explanations and pics ❤️❤️❤️!!!

Oh, well, to Japan?  LOL  (well, usual "Ryoko" came back)  
After unbelievably-long-hour watching TV for days, doing nothing except eating and shutting down myself from real human beings, this set happened 🤣😱🤪

I had been stuck with this challenge, what I was going to make and how....

But suddenly the idea came out, Sonja @iSugarfy (aka swissophie) I really should make some food that is very familiar to us Japanese and the food most of us have some sweet memory with.  

THANK YOU❣️

🤣🤣🤣Pastrami sandwiches every lunch, you know why?  That's what a man in front of me had ordered, I learned how to order and I repeated what he said.    16-years old does a lot of giggling funny things and that's not always funny to the parents, I know. 

Great story!  You are right about kids!  I’m impressed that you did that by yourself.  When I was 17 I went to Ireland for 10 weeks and stayed with my brother and his family.  I can’t believe what I did back then!

Oh, how lovely to know that Carol @Cookies Fantastique went to Italy to pursue her dream and met her hubby over there!  

And @Econlady  I went to LA by myself when I was 16 and stayed there for about a month.  It was a quite adventure.  Something funny, strange and new happened to me everyday that summer.   Since I could order only one item because of my poor English, I had the same thing for lunch for a month, now it is really funny to think about that.

Oh how fun @Econlady!! I wanted to jump in with your conversation because I went to Italy when I was 20. I didn't know the language, culture or anyone there. I had gotten a job in Naples and was pretty "fearless" at the time as well. LOL. My parents often said that they didn't know how they were able to let me pursue my dream to go. The difference from your daughter was that that I MOVED to Italy for at a year at the minimum. I met my hubby there ❤️❤️. It was a magical time and I ended up living there for 3 years...loved it!

Hi Christine, @Sweet Prodigy   

As you say, this set is really different from what I make usually, this is another "Challenge" 💕I really wanted to try, thank you, Christine.  I could try and did some more experiments, that were fun and I learned more through this challenge.  

One of my Japanese friends said that she would cook Chirashi-zushi for dinner after she saw my cookies.  That made me really happy.   Well, she is a friend who is nice to me.  She really did make Chirashi for her family. 

The other one said....  "I enlarged the photo to see"  "oh, what did you see?"  "Soy sauce!"   This made me laugh.   why, soy sauce 🤣🤣🤣   

* Please don't enlarge the photo to see soy sauce, it is just colored hard texture jelly.  

It took a lot of time to make this sushi part but to tell you the truth, it was really hard for me to make this 3D tea-cup, I used zester again to dried icing to adjust the shape.   The sakura flower in jelly.... I could put real salted flower as media but I decided to make one by myself.   I almost gave up this tea-cup and soy sauce dish but realized if I gave them up where my liquid things....  

Good thing you didn't give up. I think a lot of people look at the finished work, and don't realize all of the effort that goes into it. The 3D teacup turned out really well, and is a nice compliment to the whole set.

I had to laugh when you said your friend made Chirashi-zushi after seeing your cookie. She must have look at it and thought, "That looks amazing....and delicious! "

Your soy sauce does look really good, but I can also see all of the work that went into the sushi because I zoomed in 500%. : )

 

Wow! This is certainly a change from the style we are used to seeing from you, but it is also a very impressive one. And, after reading the comments, it seems that many people would agree.

Where do I even begin? First, thank you for writing such a wonderful description of how you created everything (and including some wonderful stories as well). The photos you included illustrate your techniques beautifully.

And then there's the "food." All of those techniques and media, skillfully combined, to create a very realistic masterpiece. I can't believe you spent days piping those grains of rice - that box definitely deserves to be posted as it's own cookie. Very nice work. You captured the spirit of the challenge perfectly.

Your profile says Fukuoka and that’s where my hubby says she was.  I think she liked japan and her host family was very good to her.  It was weird sending her half way across the world because she was so young.  She was fearless.

Oh, really?  Was she in Fukuoka?  my city Kitakyusyu?   I hope she had a good time in Japan.
