Theo Chocolatier is a major chocolate and cake company based in Tokyo. They have a couple of very upscale shops in Shizuoka City and for all their businesslike image, they do offer a couple of confections worth noticing.

One is Vostok, a cake christened (sic) after the USSR satellite (because of the shape or the colour?)

Now, this the kind of cakes more for guys like Foodhoe and Gaijin Tonic, although some hungry ladies will appreciate it (mind your figure!).

Made with lots of beaten egg whites/meringue and almond powder, it is very soft under the teeth but very fulfilling with hints of orange liqueur.
Coated with plenty of almond slices and icing sugar, it provides a crisp finish to the soft texture of the cake.
Perfect with a strong coffee!
