I go mad for cake in Japan. Somehow they have managed to get the balance of sweetness just right for me. I prefer my cake only slightly sweet and very light.
Here are some of my favourite moments of cake-ish indulgence while I was in Tokyo.
Chocolate cake enjoyed somewhere in Takashimaya.
Cheesecake enjoyed in a backstreet café in Shibuya.
Strawberry shortcake and matcha cake, bought at the station and eaten at home.
If I lived in Japan I would be a few sizes larger I am sure. Incidentally, Hiro doesn't eat cake or anything sweet in fact, he has this peculiar notion (probably Japanese) that men don't eat cake or chocolate!
