A Perfect Mix-Matcha And Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day!! I blogged previously that carnations are the kind of normal flower/gift for mom but since I hate carnations I just couldn't give my mother-in-law any. So, we looked around on line for something fabulous and we found this wonderful site that makes everything with match (ground green tea leaves). We had so many things to choose from:
A matcha set

A roll cake with matcha and fresh cream.

A New York style matcha cheese cake

A sandwich cookie made with butter cream, matcha and raisins.

Matcha daifuku-sweet beans with matcha in mochi (rice cake)

We decided on this set since there were lots of things included

This set includes: matcha chocolate, matcha daifuku, matcha pudding, cookies and dorayaki (a pancake like sandwich filled with sweet beans and matcha). We are sure his mom is going to be super happy!!

the food looks so pretty and good! I think I'd have a hard time trying to convince myself it was all right to eat green food since I was taught that if something is green it might be bad :p

Oh yummy!! I miss Japan for all that mochi and matcha stuff - I LOVE IT!! And I always hesitate wanting to eat it because it looks so NICE!!

We have the odd stuff here, but it never looks as good as it does in Japan!
