Totoro Flavoured Ice Cream

Some exciting things have happened recently, the most relevant one being the arrival of my lovely new computer...
This should enable far easier blogment than the previous one (which mainly didn't work), though probably won't magically conjure up fascinating things to write about or even time to write them in.
Though you never know, of course.

Anyway, this also allows me to show you what I've been making for this month's BSFIC event over on KaveyEats.

The theme this month was Japan (in celebration of Kavey's amazing holiday - welcome home!), which obviously brought one thing to mind immediately...


I had recently made a delicious Totoro cake, but I wasn't certain he would translate that well to ice cream and it seemed a bit cruel to mash up a load of Totoros just to make sorbet, so I tried to think of other tasty Japanese flavours.



I found a black sesame ice cream recipe here, which I made with a few mini adaptations to suit the things that were in my cupboard.

But it was a bit dull (though tasty).
So I did this.


Better ears next time :-)
