This is a cake which is called “Christmas candle” from HENRI CHARPENTIER.
This cake has a lot of eye appeal.
The christmas candle in the middle of chocolate tea cake is festive and pretty.
The fresh raspberries and strawberries gave the cake an incredible sweet-sour berry flavor. Heaven on earth.

When I opened it, there were many colorful Rakugan inside.

These Rakugan were in different shapes such as autumn leaves, plum blossom and other traditional Japanese plants.
