Yokan art

Every year on New Year’s Day, my sister cuts the pink and green yokan into shapes using my mother’s vegetable flower shape cutters and then hand-cutting and scoring leaves and other shapes. This year, in celebration of the Dodger’s 2020 World Series Championship win, she made carved their “LA” logo.

I think it was her best ever!
