Wagashi- Osakana Kuwaeta Doraneko Recipe Video

This video will show you a kawaii (cute) idea of presenting Wagashi (Japanese sweets)! I am using Dorayaki - consists of two small pancakes with azuki (sweet red bean paste) filling and Taiyaki - fish-shaped sweet cake with azuki filling. Wagashi sounds pretty formal but it is often eaten at home in Japan because it's healthy. Anyways, do you know what Osakana Kuwaeta Doraneko means? Osakana is a polite way of saying fish. Kuwaeta is eating. And Doraneko is a stray cat. So, it means "stray cat eating fish". I think this phrase is pretty known to all Japanese since it's the words from Sazae-san's song, if you know ;)
