Baumkuchen from Japan

My family was strolling down Ginza last weekend and wondered why there was such a long line and they decided to line up themselves. At the end of the line was this bakery that was selling these freshly baked goodies.

According to Wikipedia, the “Baum Kuchen” or King of Cakes, is a kind of layered cakes from Europe. It is traditionally sold in rings. To create the effect, a layer of cake is poured on a core that is baking. Once a layer has been created, another is made on top of it thus creating the ring effect.


They got a box (which was sealed and could last up to 6 days) for around ¥1,500 I think.

They brought it home to me and we opened it.


These pictures don’t even do justice on how it tastes like.

Note how the rings are made.

I also like the card it comes with when you open it.
