Last weekend, The Hamilton Hamster Family from the Sylvanian Families neighbourhood enjoyed a cozy family sushi dinner. They ate the traditional Japanese way – sitting down on the floor. The sushi on their table are not toys – they are edible gummy candy made to look like sushi. The sushi were made from popular Japanese series of edible gummy (grape flavored jello/gummy/soft candy) kit: Kracie Popin’ Cookin’ Candy Sushi. The product do not contain artificial colours and the gummies are candy flavoured.
Can you tell which are the edibles and which are not? All the sushi and the saucer of soy sauce are edible. The drinks, ginger and soy sauce bottle are props, taken from my miniature food collection. The table is an actual sushi wooden plate, and converted to a hamster-sized dining table just for the Hamilton Hamster Family.
If you watch this video by RRcherrypie, it will give you a very good idea of what this is all about and how to make the candy (the instructions on the box are Japanese).
A closer look at the provided mould, spatula and water dropper. You need to add fresh drinking water to mix with the pre-packed powder. You can use the top compartment in the mould to hold the water but it is handy to use our own bowl.
Have fun making and eating your own gummy candy!
Note: For those in Singaore, you can purchase them from Gmarket
