Huh? Is Christmas already coming? Just when you think it’s suddenly going to be cold, it’s already flying by for the end of the year! It’s that time of year. That’s why it’s started taking reservations for the 2020 Christmas Cake at Hotel Nikko Osaka. Let’s check out the four types of Christmas cakes that the patissier hopes will make you feel warm and comfortable at home with your family and friends.
Premium Christmas Shorts
The 21cm-diameter “Premium Christmas Short” is a lavish combination of sweet sponge made of wasanbon and Japanese strawberries. 10,000 yen (tax not included). The key point is the beautiful decorations, which look like lots of shooting stars falling on the cake.
The 15cm-diameter Christmas Short (4,500 yen) (excluding tax) is a sponge with strawberry sandwiches, decorated with plenty of cream to look like a tree. Santa Claus, who climbed up the chocolate ladder to deliver the gifts, is so cute!
Bûche de Noël
The 12 cm long “Buche de Noel”, perfect for Christmas for adults, is also available for 4,500 yen (tax not included). The raspberry and almond batter wrapped in bitter chocolate mousse hides a raspberry jelly and tonka bean cream.
Stollen (German fruit cake)
The Stollen, a traditional German Christmas pastry that is eaten bit by bit as you count down the days of Christmas, costs 3,000 yen (tax not included), and at 20 cm in length, it is a very satisfyingly large item. It is baked with dried fruits and nuts and covered with powdered sugar.
