Hina Ichigo at the kitchen! Let's take a look and see what is she doing there!?

My husband came to me once and said "you will write about your cooking in our blog!". "What a surprise" I thought. How do I start? Because I know so many recipes! And then Hina Ichigo gave us an idea by saying "I helped to prepare cake not so long ago! Let's start with it!" ^^ So we agreed Smile

Ah, for those who don't know who Hina-chan is, let me tell you in a few words. Hina Ichigo is one of the seven dolls from an anime Rozen Maiden, this is if we talk about the character. A limited edition dollfie Hina-chan got to us from Volks company. Originally released for Dollfie Party 18. And we are thankful to them!
Hina-chan loves strawberries a lot, and her name means just that. It means Baby Strawberry. Thet's why she can't resist the cake, which I wanted to do for a long time because I love strawberry very much too! In order to make it tastier, Hina-chan volunteered to help in cooking.
So today in the menu we have:

"White Chocolate Strawberry Mousse Cake"
