What goes well with kinako? And general help w/ Japanese/Asian desserts

My friend does a ramen night every so often, where he makes ramen completely from scratch. I'm often tasked with dessert because I'm a blogger and baker... I've already made plenty of desserts with black sesame and green tea so I want to try something new. I have taro powder and was originally going to do something with taro and coconut. I already even made taro marshmallows. But then I remembered that I had bought a bag of kinako/soybean flour some time ago and I should use it... I found a recipe for a kinako chiffon cake but would an ice cream be better? [more inside]

cake for lazy people

When I lived in France, I used to make a super easy, delicious cake for the kids that involved using a container of yogurt and then measuring all the other ingredients using that container of yogurt. I've totally forgotten how to make this now. Anyone know what I'm talking about or where to find a recipe?

Finding chocolate dipped strawberries... ?

Aside from buying the ingredients and making them myself, where would one go to buy chocolate dipped strawberries in Southern California - preferably in the San Fernando Valley?

Mail Order Cheesecake

Mail Order Cheesecake? My girlfriend really likes pumpkin cognac cheesecake. Unfortunately, the store that sells it here is going out of business. I'm a horrible baker and I can't find much on Google. Is there a baker (preferably online) that would mail delicious cheesecake to Tulsa, OK?
