Arome Bakery 東海堂 - The Purple Romance

After the chestnut selection during Autumn season, Arome Bakery comes up with a new series for Winter. The purple potato series use Okinawa sweet potatoes to create the typical three - tart, dessert cup and roll cake. The tart has genmaicha sponge and cream within the mont-blanc like purple potato puree, over a crumbly buttery crust. The dessert cup is again filled with smooth purple potato cream, with a dollop of not-so-sweet potato puree in addition to the meringue-like marshmallow on top and has a complex combination of genmaicha sponge and jellos within the cream. They are a scrumptious ornament. While the roll is still soft and spongy, it is filled with a genmaicha infused cream and a few delightful sweet potato puree. In addition, there is this cookies and cream sponge cake. Overall, I think I will put them in this way: Uji Matcha Series > Okinawa Purple Potato Series > Chestnut Series.
