My husband’s birthday came around and I ordered a large green tea flavored Hokkaido Layer Cake from First Love Patisierre. I was intending to share it with our family during his birthday lunch. Much to our dismay, Table 8 charges Rp. 25,000 ++ (almost US$3 + tax + gratuity) per slice for outside cake, so we ended up taking the cake home. (I’m glad we found out before everybody got there.) To add to the wound, the cake turned out to be the wrong flavor when we opened it at home. I called in to complain about the mistake. The store apologized and redelivered a new cake for me the next morning. Great customer service! After two days of wait, my husband finally got to enjoy the cake he has been waiting to eat.
After the delivery man left, James promptly requested me to serve him a slice. He got a wait for a bit more, though since I got to snap some pictures
At a quick glance, the green tea version looks like the original, but at a closer look it lacks the caramel glace of the original. Of course the difference is clearly visible once you take out a slice. The layers of muted green colored cream is really inviting.
