I know. I cheated. Today is not October 31st, but I need to have a wagashi entry on the last day of every month, so please forgive me.
This wagashi is another nerikiri with a beautiful color gradation. The color on the surface is lighter pink, and redder pink inside is showing through the cuts.

It may not be true any more because… Now I can see the readers of my blog putting their fingers (or mouse cursors) on the above photo and going 1, 2, 3… ;)
