I’ll admit it. I’m still in Japan mode. My family and I are still coming off our high so when I saw this month’s Daring Bakers’ Challenge, I decided that I needed to make something with some of my spoils from the trip – Green Tea, Sakura Essence, and Azuki.
In my mind’s eye, I pictured a perfectly layered creation that was even all around, smooth without bumps and creases. The reality was much different:
This pink sakura ice cream that managed to seep through? It was a lot worse on my first attempt – the whole thing was pink.
I have to say, when i took a bite of it, it was really good. I was a little surprised seeing as how the combination was a little crazy but it married together well. I’m still tweaking the recipes a bit and will post up when I’m happy with it.
