Another 2014 Christmas Cake from Tokyo! This delicate looking cake is called the Sugary Berry, and is made by the Melissa patisserie at the Rihga Royal Hotel. It's a mascarpone cheese mousse cake that's colored a light pink with raspberry gelée, clad in white sugar lace and topped with fresh berries. It's a mini-cake (9cm diameter, 10cm high), to be enjoyed by a couple or, as the site suggests, for "the hard working woman , as a special year-end treat for herself". 2,000 yen.

Tempura soba with the tempura served on the side rather than on the soba. This way you can have both crispy and soup-soaked tempura!

2014 Christmas Cakes in Tokyo! The Park Hyatt Tokyo is the dream hotel in Tokyo for many people (mainly due to the movie Lost in Translation). Their Christmas cakes are quietly elegant, as befits the hotel. One exampe is the Carré au Poire - rich pear mousse with pear compote and biscuits à la cuillère (ladyfingers), covered with Belgian chocolate ganache, with pistachios on the sides and pear pâte de fruit and gold leaf on top. (And they do load up on the French terms in the description...) 12cm square, 3,900 yen.

I don't have a lot of details for this entry in the 2014 Christmas Cakes in Tokyo series, since reservations for it are already sold out! It's a cake that is made by the pastry chefs at the Disney Ambassador Hotel at Tokyo Disney Resort (which is technically not in Tokyo...it's in Chiba, but anyway). It's covered in whipped cream that looks like freshly fallen snow, a chocolate mousse Mickey hat with chocolate ears , and a yellow chocolate ribbon. Kawaii!
