Cooked kuro-mame (black beans, usually black soy beans)
Thinly slice the cucumber with a peeler, make usuyaki, and wrap each around a boiled egg (small), and place into silicone cups. Stick them in deep.
Stick on the hair and faces with nori seaweed. Make the crowns from carrot, make the black lacquered head gear from the black bean, and stick them on with dried bits of spaghetti. Stick the cheeks on with bits of carrot cut out with a straw using mayonnaise.
Make chirashi sushi or make rice balls with vinegar rice (unlisted).
Wrap them in ham or cucumber, line them up correspondingly on a large plate, and decorate with kinshi tamago, salmon roe, small shrimp, and rape blossoms etc.
Stack a smaller plate on top, decorate with the Hina dolls, and you are done. Decorate them with noses using sesame, and a scepter and formal folding fan made from carrot if you like.
I made an even simpler version for 2014. I turned it into a decoration sushi cake.
Story Behind this Recipe
These edible hina dolls were featured in a blog.
-I cut a paper coaster in half to give it the feel of a folding screen. -I placed a cup between the large and small plates, and stuck some fake pink flowers inside.
