Story and recipe on my blog.
I didn't have time to style or set up these photos very much, so please don't judge them by my usual standards 8). Ran around all day making food for my birthday party: sesame otsu noodles with grilled eggplant and fresh cucumbers, sriracha grilled tofu, chicken yakitori skewers, raspberry tres leches cake, and mango mascarpone macarons! This was really nice, though I'd probably reduce the sugar in the sauce slightly next time. My cake also got a thick chewy layer at the very bottom due to bad directions which I've changed for the recipe I posted on my blog.
