some muggleborn like “i want to be an astronaut when i grow up!”

wizard kids like “wtf is an astronaut”

"oh you know…the people who go to the moon"

implying that magical children would know literally nothing outside of the wizarding worldimage



So you wanna have Iwatobikkuri-pan…

…But traveling to Iwami just isn’t in your budget, well rejoice! With a few household staples (and a couple things you may need to pick up) you too can have your very own Iwatobikkuri-pan!!


Ingredients (for 2 buns):


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tbsp  sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 cup milk diluted with water to 1/3 cup
  • 1 tsp instant dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp lukewarm water
  • beaten egg
  • 2 tbsp soft butter

Filling and deco:

  •  1/3 a dark chocolate bar (approx 1/4 cup choco chips) melted
  • 4 tbsp each jam and marmalade
  • 1/2 cup whipped topping/whipping cream
  • 2 cashews, 2 peanuts (halved)
  • optional: 1/2 cup custard or pastry cream

Combine the warm water and yeast and let sit as you gather your other ingredients. Combine the flour, sugar, and salt together in a bowl or food processor. Add the yeasty-water, 1 tbsp of the beaten egg and the diluted milk and pulse until combined. Add the butter and mix until the dough becomes smooth (took about a minute in my food processor). Shape into a ball (you’re gonna want to flour your hands) and cover with plastic wrap in a bowl and let sit for an hour or until it doubles in size (if you can poke a floury finger into the ball and not have it swell to fill it, it’s ready).

Once it’s risen enough, place on a floured surface and divide into two. From there, you’re going to want to divide each half into 2/5 (head) and 3/5 (body). Once everything’s divided up, place on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet, cover with a damp cloth, leave in a warm place, and settle down with your favourite episode of Free! (aka leave it alone for 20 minutes). 

After watching half-naked cuties, shape the larger dough balls into cylinders and attach the smaller balls into a roughly Iwatobi-chan-ish shape. Cover again and go watch another episode of Free! (before you do, preheat your oven to 400F/200C)

Brush the buns with the leftover beaten egg, and make the faces out of the peanuts and cashews. Place in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and cool. If you need to make some whipping cream, melt your chocolate, or wash your dishes, go do this now. 

Cut a “V” shape out of the body and remove the piece. Carefully, with a chopstick or finger-like tool poke a hole into the head from where it’s connected to the body. Fill the head-cavern with luscious cream, custard and/or chocolate. If you have custard, pipe a line of it down the body. Follow up with a layer of whipped cream next. Taking small spoonfuls, place the marmalade and jam on either side of the whipping cream. Get out a piping bag with a small tip (or a plastic bag with a teeny hole cut at a corner) and pipe on the pupils and chocolate drizzle.

That’s it! Tuck in and decide how you eat your Iwatobikkuri-pan!

Skipping class to write my paper

I’m skipping my Art History class to write my Philosophy paper. Summer school is intense guys. Never do full time in the summer. It’s awful. 

I could probably tell you everything you want to know about Copernicus, Newton, and Darwin. Along with just about Ancient Art/Architecture History from Mesopotamia to I think we just finished Islamic art yesterday.
