Just to Cheer Myself Up ...



No, I didn't make this, of course. I just needed something to cheer myself up, so I spent 300 yen on this today.

Obachan, you read my mind! I was just wandering around during my lunch break and wondering whether I should splurge on some just-cos-I-want-them chocolates... I think I need to head back downstairs now :)

Hope the cake cheered you up!!!

That looks like just the sort of thing to cheer you up. It's pretty and it looks delicious! I love Japanese sponge cake and would like to find a good recipe for it.

Hey, long time no hear! Well, I don’t want to talk about the taste of this cake, but at least the sight of it was a pleasure to my eyes. ;)

You know what shopping can do to women… ;)

lance
Thanks. Actually your sweet comment cheered me up than this cake ;P

hinata
Craving for sweets is communicable, you know. ;)

It does look pretty, doesn’t it?
BTW, just from curiosity… do you think that Japanese sponge cakes are lighter than American ones?

tea
Well… it cheered me up, Yes... but it was not AFTER eating it… ;P

mmmm, yum! i was wondering the same thing - i like japanese pastries because they seem lighter and less sweet!

Money well spent I would say.

I agree with what aloi said. To me, Japanese cake seems lighter and less sweet.

I bought the April 2 issue of Orange Page magazine, which has a recipe for Raspberry Jam Butter Cake. I hope to try it soon.
