Mama's Tip: If using sweet red bean paste as a filling, my mom suggests putting plastic wrap in the bowl before putting the red bean paste in.
This way, you can easily save your sweet red bean paste for future use. It is good for 1 week in the fridge and 1 month in the freezer
Cupcake wrappers are great for making your mochi portable!
