Fancy a slice of yummy cake? Japanese convenience store chain ‘Lawson’ lists Neon Genesis Evangelion and K-ON!! themed desserts in it’s Christmas cake collection. The strawberry-flavored Evangelion cake is made to represent the core of an Eva unit.
The dome-shaped cake measures 13 centimeters in diameter and is filled with strawberry jam and mousse. It comes with a 13-centimeter Asuka Langely Shikinami figure and costs 4,500 yen (about US$60). This is the second year an Evangelion Christmas cake has been offered. The K-ON!! Christmas cake has a strawberries-and-cream flavor, comes with chocolate K-ON!! decorations, and a Christmas K-ON!! banner wraps around the outside. The cake measures 15 centimeters in diameter and comes with a 105-millimeter figure of Yui Hirasawa dressed like Santa. The cake with the Yui figure costs 3,980 yen (about US$52), but a version with miniature K-ON!! plushies is also available costing 4,500 yen (about US$60). This is the first time a K-ON!! Christmas cake has been offered. LAWSON is also selling a set of K-ON!! frozen ice desserts for 3,980 yen (about US$52). They both look absolutely delicious.
Christmas cakes are traditionally a light cake eaten on Christmas Eve in Japan.
