Lost and confused in Hiroo when it comes to Birthday cakes so off to Meidi-Ya to try my luck!
There's a tiny unstaffed corner with a few cakes and some smaller cake slice selections... nobody to be found manning this tiny spot. Waved down a friendly register lady and here we go!
If you are ever lost in cake selections this is the standard one to buy... normally called a "Short Cake" its a vanilla cake with cream and slices of strawberries. Probably the best seller in Japan. Seems the place is so small they only have 1 of each cake.
1/3 vanilla cake, 1/3 whip cream and 1/3 strawberries for 3,400yen. I kinda prefer a hot apple pie with vanilla ice cream on top but at the request of my Japanese friends this was the Birthday cake of choice.
