Do you know Rilakkuma already? I didn’t until a couple of years ago. But this adorable bear is almost like Hello Kitty, just not as known by the mainstream outside of Asia. It is Japans fifth most popular character! I made Rilakkuma shaped breads a week ago for my cousin, but without the custard. This time I had crème pâtissiére from the day before in the fridge so it seemed like a great idea to put it inside the buns! It was super delicious!
