Make your own Rilakkuma cookies, pancakes, chocolates & more with Rilakkuma cooking goods 2020-08-24 Mon 2020-08-24 Mon It seems like there is no end to sweet collaborations featuring characters from Sanrio and San-X. Whether it's collaboration cafes or Japanese sweets, the possibilities are endless. Rilakkuma and friends from San-X, for example, have been seen in everything from crepes, sundaes and drinks, cakes, and they make regular appearances in the Tabemasu wagashi series available at Lawson convenience stores. Unfortunately, the novel coronavirus pandemic has made it difficult for people to go out and shop the way they used to, and taking a trip to Japan is not an option. So what can a Rilakkuma-loving fan with a sweet tooth do? How about making some Rilakkuma sweets at home? Now thanks to a series of goods on sale at the Village Vanguard Online Store, you can make everything from cookies, cakes and pancakes, cupcakes and chocolates in the likeness of Rilakkuma and Kiiroitori.
