Hamantaschen with Prune Filling.
I made these Jewish cookies for the coffee shop I started working.
Finally, I have got a new job here in Fairbanks!
I started working as a baker for a decent coffee shop in Fairbanks last month.
The job in this shop is what I have wanted for a long time. It is an ideal place to work for me.
I have been making several kinds of cookies, eclairs, French macarons,and so on.
On my off day, I also bake something we want to eat at home as usual.
And sometimes I brought some samples to the shop and share some new ideas.
It is pretty fun!
Chocolate mille crêpe with caramel whipped cream.
I brought some pieces to the shop to share this as a new idea.
It is quite popular among Japanese, but
most of the people here in U. S. have never heard about it.
I could have put more cream in each layer.
The kitchen manager in the coffee shop gave me a present!
He keeps 2 quail hens and these are their eggs!
I haven't seen the fresh quail eggs since we left Japan.
They are all pretty!
Here are some Alaskan shrimps
we got from the guy selling shrimps by the street.
He was selling 3 pound bags, but
when we asked him to sell by smaller portion,
he just gave 1 pound of the shrimp for free!
They all have eggs, too.
Here are the quail eggs after boiled.
The inside of the shell was pale blue
and it looked pretty.
We had the eggs with boiled shrimp.
The quail eggs was so rich in flavor!
These cupcakes were the ordered ones at the coffee shop.
Their request was something navy, teal, and anchor,
so I made some blue flowers with some accent of
yellow, peach, lavender flowers,
and white anchor with Italian meringue buttercream.
I prepared 4 different kinds of frosting on top of the cupcakes;
Vanilla, Lemon, Chocolate, and Peanut Butter.
