Sweets, traditional, part 1
the wagashi [traditional japanese sweets] are beautiful and witty, and always subtly refer to the seasons. they're
sometimes a little disappointing to western tastes unless red bean paste, mochi, or pressed sugar is your thing. as an incurable sweet tooth, i'm able to indulge happily.
note: peony and maple leaves are made of sugar!
