Since I am a great fan of Macrobiotic food, food coloring is not something you will find in our daily menu. So when me and my daughter first saw this, I had some mixed emotions on making this. And, then I have decided why not it is only one time a year and she looked so happy while watching it =D so I went ahead and made her this one. I must say it is very quick and easy process. The only thing is that if you make it a day ahead the layers pressing each other and might look thinner (a lot)than they were before.
