Japanese people love food. They’re willing to line up for hours to enter popular restaurants and cafés, and they value taste as well as the appearance of the dishes. Therefore, cooks and pastry chefs are always making new improvements on their creations whether it is the taste or the arrangement of the menu to satisfy the high expectations of their guests.
Ginza Cozy Corner is one of the most popular pastry factories in Japan, establishing its first shop in January, 1948 in Tokyo´s Ginza district. Throughout the decades, the company has opened 400 shops, including cafés, restaurants and take-out shops all throughout Japan.
A cake set which comes with 9 delicacies is one of the highlights of Ginza Cozy Corner’s take-out shops. The variety and taste changes monthly and features a different theme each time.
Until July 31st, the cake set theme was Alice in Wonderland, celebrating the new movie that was recently released in Japan. The cakes come in a beautiful designed box. If you have a long way to your destination, don´t worry, they will put ice packs inside the box, so that the cakes will stay fresh until you arrive.
The artwork is very pretty and promotes the little cakes very well.
Each piece features a character or item of the fairy tale and was additionally decorated with little plastic parts contributing to the atmosphere.
