I tried a cake from Patisserie Eclat de Jour in Toyocho, Koto-ku, Tokyo. Two items are "Shortcake Verrine" which is made by the glass and "Opera" which is their specialty.
Éclat de Jour Cakes
Shortcake VerrineA glass-shaped shortcake with strawberry sauce added to make it smoother. Priced at 594 yen (tax included).
The sponge is fine and fluffy. The sponge is soft and fluffy, and the rich, mild cream is combined with juicy strawberries to create a well-balanced shortcake. The bottom of the cake is filled with sponge soaked in strawberry sauce, accentuating the sweetness and moistness of the texture.
Eaten with a spoon, this shortcake is like a parfait. You can enjoy it with your eyes without worrying about it falling apart in the middle.
OperaA traditional French cake combining coffee and chocolate. This is Chef Éclat de Jour's specialty. Price: 518 yen (tax included).
The visual is a complete change from the usual chic look. Opera has a strong image of chocolate cake, but this cake has a strong coffee flavor. It is moist in texture and richly flavored with the aroma of coffee and the rich sweetness of chocolate. It has a rich flavor and is a delicious treat that you will never get tired of.
Each cake at éclat des jours has its own unique flavor. In addition to these two cakes, the showcase is lined with a rich variety of colorful cakes.
A variety of baked goods and bakery items are also available. In addition to Toyocho, there is also a store in Toyosu, also in Koto-ku. Cake lovers, check it out!
