Japanese Sweets from Tokara
Last weekend I tasted something new - Japanese sweets called wagashi. My friends brought them over for Russian Orthodox Easter. They bought them from Tokara store. I tried three sweets - Sakura Robe, Petals of Cherry and Spring Daydream. All sweets looked beautiful. Taste wise they seemed all similar to me and I could taste the bean paste and sugar. It is definitely something unique that I have never tried before. But is it better than praline dream cake from Bakery Nouveau? Hmm, not for me. Yet. But I am sure there are people who appreciate and love wagashi. Hope some will find this post useful.
