It is once again the time of giri-choco, tomo-choco... and just general overconsumption of sweets. However, my sharemate Wave-chan takes it all to the next level. Since she works in a cafe, her dessert-making skills are sublime. Wouldn't you be thrilled to receive one of the beautifully decorated cakes above?
Fortunately she was kind enough to share her talents, and after a nice brunch on Saturday, even I got wrapped up in making truffles (which was actually surprisingly easy), that were later scoffed with apparent appreciation by both Matcha-kun and my sharemates.
However, my Valentine's gift was even better. My boss (have I mentioned that my boss is awesome? 'cause she totally is) gave me fresh ramen, wonderful, tasty shoyu ramen! She certainly has me figured out! Is there any better way of spending an evening than with a bowl of ramen, banana chiffon cake (Wave-chan's creation again), a cup of tea and friends?
