We're back from a little trip, but until I can get things sorted out, I hope this post will tide you over.
The last time we had sweets from Hamburg was Christmas.
On a recent trip to Daimaru in Umeda, I noticed these and asked Satoshi to pick some up on his way home...Pudding a la mode...420 yen (about US$4.20) each.
While the colorful fruit jumps out at you, it was actually the ceramic cups that they were in that caught my eye.
All the fruit on top was perfectly ripe and delicious with a light layer of gelatin to hold everything in place.
When you make your way to the bottom of the cup, there is the caramel....mmm, one more, please!
How cute are these? Perfect for a cup of Sakura Vert (a blend of green tea and sakura leaves) by Lupicia.
I forget when I learned of this tea, but to me, it truly represents Spring and the cherry blossoms.
UPDATE: Hamburg is no longer in Daimaru Umeda.
