Taiyaki (Fish-shaped pancake filled with been jam)

Tomorrow I am helping a Japanese grocery store's 1st anniversary festival which my friend is working.  They are trying to take a Japanese autumn festival (called Aki Matsuri) and having a lot of kinda street stalls, for example, octopus dumplings (called takoyaki), fried soba (called yakisoba), shooting game, coin game and more which are Japanese traditional things.  I am making Taiyaki tomorrow.  Taiyaki is a fish-shaped Japanese pancake and the filling is azuki bean jelly.  It's a kind of traditional Japanese sweets and very popular because not only looks nice but also really tasty!

I have never made Taiyaki so I went to the store and practiced a lot!

This is a Taiyaki pan.

Hooooo!!!!  So cute♡♡

I was so excited to use this pan!  Well, let's practice!!
