Fira Internationella barndagen i Japan med dessa goda koinobori/fiskformade kakor. Koinobori är de karpformade vimplarna som traditionellt hissas från japanska hustak under Internationella barndagen, som i Japan firas den 5 maj. Detta kakrecept handlar om att använda sina måleri- och designförmågor och är ett roligt, konstnärligt matprojekt för både barn och vuxna.


230g flour
100g butter
80g sugar
1 egg

Så här gör du

  1. Take the butter out of the fridge and leave until room temperature. 
  2. Cream the softened butter and sugar together in a bowl. Once combined, add the egg and mix well.
  3. Sift the flour into the bowl, mix well, and form the dough into a ball.
  4. Wrap the dough with cling film and chill for half an hour in the fridge.
  5. Preheat your oven to 170C.
  6. Take the dough out of the fridge and roll out onto a floured surface to 2-3mm thick. Cut out fish shapes with biscuit cutters if possible, otherwise use a butter knife to gently cut out the shapes avoiding damage to the working surface. Make half of the fish-shaped biscuits larger (about 8cmx3.5cm) than the rest of the dough. With the other half, make small ones (about 6cmx3.5cm). You can change the sizes if you want. 
  7. Place the shapes on a parchment-lined baking tray and bake for 12-15 minutes. Check the colour after 10 minutes.
  8. When golden brown, remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
  9. When cooled, decorate with colour icing pens or hand-made icing sugar to make them look like cute koi fish.
