I’ve just returned from 2 weeks in Japan – skiing in Fukushima, eating cakes decorated like bears in Osaka, sightseeing in Tokyo and catching up with lovely friends. First on my list was stalking the patisserie level of Takashimaya, Osaka, to check out all the adorable new-year cakes. Some were bunny themed, for the Chinese new year. Some were decorated with snowy icing for a winter theme. All looked oishi!
After doing the rounds I decided on a kawaii ‘milk pudding’ (below). But then the sales assistant asked which one I would like… How could I choose ?
