Satisfy Your Sailor Moon Fix with These Cakes
Even in a country that places an unparalleled importance on the visual presentation of food, the tarts from Japan’s Café Comme Ca stand out. In fact, one of its missions is to “make Japanese foods artistic,” as evidenced by a new line of cakes based on the main characters of hit anime and manga franchise Sailor Moon.
Staring things off, naturally, is a cake saluting the star of the show herself: the Moon Mango Peach Pineapple Cake, with an array of crescent moon-shaped pineapple slices atop a custard cream base.
The Mercury Blue Blue Cheesecake is covered with blueberries, evocative of Sailor Mercury’s Shabon Spray bubble splash attack, and features a cream cheese base.
In what’s likely an unintentional nod to Sailor Moon’s international popularity, the raspberry cream cheese-base Mars Fire Strawberry Cherry Cake has American cherries along with its strawberries of unspecified national origin.
Sailor Jupiter makes yet another strong case for being the best sailor scout with the Jupiter Thunder Melon Kiwi’s green tea-infused unbaked cheesecake base.
And finally, the final Inner Senshi member is represented by the Love Me Mango Orange Cake, which is just the sort of thing worldly Sailor Venus would enjoy with its mango fromage blanc base.
Each cake is sold as a set with a Senshi-themed non-alcoholic cocktail for ¥1,350 (US$12). With flavors like Moon Pink Grapefruit, Mercury Blue Curacao Lemonade, Mars Cassis Passion Rosemary, Jupiter Green Apple Lime, and Venus Mango Lemonade, it's the perfect pairing to go along with your cake.
You also get a special art coaster, as is becoming a common feature of anime-themed dining.
While Café Comme Ca has a number of locations in Tokyo, these Sailor Moon cakes are only on the menu at its branch in the Shibuya neighborhood, available until June 30, 2017. Considering, though, that Shibuya isn’t that far from Azabu Juban, the part of Tokyo where Sailor Moon is shown living in her ordinary schoolgirl persona, the exclusivity seems appropriate.
