Ramen Sweets

Like many people who take a trip to Japan, Amber Spiegel headed home with a newly impassioned love of ramen. But rather than quietly tuck her noodle-based memories into a special corner of her heart, she chose to channel her love of the dish into another form of the culinary arts.

On her YouTube channel SweetAmbsCookies, Spiegel regularly walks viewers through the steps to make uniquely beautiful cookies. While all of her designs are eye-catching, we’ve got a special fondness for one of her most recent lessons, in which she shows us how to prepare ramen cookies!

As realistic as they look, the treats are entirely noodle-free, with the pasta and toppings all fashioned from royal frosting. Speaking of the toppings, Spiegel’s choices are all authentic Japanese favorites, and her cookies are a faithful visual reproduction of the real deal!
