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?)
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!
