madame shinco

madameshinco (3) Recently my friend Hiromi gave us this baum brulee by Madame Shinco.

Madame Shinco is actually a real person, she used to be a hostess at a elite club in Ginza, Tokyo.

Now she is famous selling all sorts of different baum kuchen and other sweets from her shop in Minoo and at various department stores around Osaka and Tokyo.

madameshinco (4) I've given this particular baum brulee away as gifts, when I want to give someone a taste of "Minoo", though I have not actually tasted it myself.

Look at that sheen.

madameshinco (2) This was really sweet, the top was a very crackly burnt sugar, delicious.

Not something you would eat everyday though, best to be given away.

Merry Christmas everyone! (Thank you Hiromi!)

From hostess to having your name put on a box. Now THAT is what I call success. Yummylicious image!
