Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo’s Christmas Cake 2022
Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo’s popular annual Christmas cake will make a comeback in 2022. Under the theme of “Merry Christmas from Around the World,” a wide variety of traditional Japanese and European cakes and baked goods inspired by the countries in which they are made will be available.
Sembikiya Queen Strawberry Premium Shortcake
Of particular note is the “Sembikiya Queen Strawberry Premium Shortcake,” a collaboration cake with Sembikiya Sohonten. It is made with the rare “Queen Strawberry,” a strawberry with an excellent balance of sweetness and sourness, and the light and smooth whipped cream and sponge create a trinity of “supreme taste.
Mont Blanc (chestnut and cream dessert)
Mont Blanc” is a cake with rich butter cream and mousse made from chestnuts from France, Italy, and Japan. The inside of the cake is filled with crispy meringue to add a textural accent. The top is decorated with ornaments reminiscent of French Christmas ornaments, creating a cute and unique appearance.
Strawberry and pistachio kumo (kumo = cloud)
Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo’s popular “Kumo” cloud-shaped cake, “Kumo with Strawberries and Pistachios,” a limited edition flavor for the Christmas season, is now available. Inspired by the snowy landscape of Finland, where Santa Claus Village is located, and the clothes of Santa Claus, the richly flavored pistachio mousse is filled with sweet and sour strawberry confit. It is coated with rich white chocolate.
Cakes for the Holiday Season
The lineup also includes a cute “shortcake” decorated with fir trees, stars, and Santa Claus’ walking stick, and a “gateau chocolat” inspired by the gingerbread house that symbolizes the Güell Park in Barcelona, Spain.
