I’ve decided to give the Japanese Christmas Cake another go (I have made this before, last year around June. For step by step instructions, see my old blog post here.) because I 1) named it incorrectly the first time. This is not a Strawberry Shortcake by any means and 2) I posted it in the middle of summer, when strawberries are at the peak of their season in California, but this cake is eaten so much in Japan during this winter season that I thought I should re-post it as a holiday feature. As an aside, it’s eaten extensively in Japan because strawberry season starts in Japan in December, making the fruit delicious and abundant.
