As if Japan isn't appealing enough, this local patisserie in Kyoto has recently created "canned cakes" so customers boarding the Shinkansen (bullet train) can easily take them on their long-distance journey.
According to the PR Times, the cakes are available for purchase at a local patisserie at Kyoto Station.
With seven new flavours, all prettily displayed in petit cans, the local patisserie takes the presentation of the sweet dessert to a whole new level.
According to Soranews24, the patisserie, called Patisserie Rakkansha, first came up with the idea while looking for a convenient way for customers to better enjoy their sweets.
This came after receiving feedback from customers who were self-conscious about opening their mouths wide to eat cream puffs in public, and accidentally leaving bits of cream around their lips, reported the PR Times.
The cakes are thus packaged in petit cans, so customers can easily enjoy the cakes with a fork or spoon.
Blue soda, cream puff & fromage
Seven new flavours are available, including Blue Soda, Fromage, two different flavours of Purin (pudding), and three different flavours of Cream Puffs.
Here are all seven of them, with description:
