180px-Strawberry_shortcake4 *Kurisumasu keki (クリスマスケーキ), Japanese Christmas cake, is an industrial sponge cake made many months before in the late summer and fall and deeply refrigerated. Then the week before Christmas, it’s layered with engineered whipped cream (seroprotein, caseinate, sugar, lecithin, modified starch, etc.), studded with beautiful-but-tasteless hothouse strawberries, and decorated with tiny, plastic, Xmas figurines and gimcrack.
