Steps

1. Mix the rice with the sakura denbu to make the pink ones, with the egg yolk and salt for the yellow ones, with the salt for the white ones. Wrap each up in plastic wrap and shape into balls (60 g per ball).
2. Let the rice cool while wrapped. When completely cooled, cut them in half through the wrap. This is easier if you moisten the blade.
3. Fill each onigiri with half of the filling. For the yellow and white onirigi, mix their ※ ingredients and add half to each.
4. They will look like this. Now, carefully wrap them up in plastic wrap for serving.
5. Put stickers on top of the plastic wrap for decoration. Your cute macaron-style onigiri are complete.
