Hydrangeas in the Rainy Season

June and July bring around the rainy season in Japan. During the season, hydrangeas are beautiful everywhere. Colorful hydrangeas are also in bloom near my apartment.


The other day, my mom went to a cake shop near our apartment, and found this item there. What does it look like? Yes, it is a hydrangea-shaped cake! Now it is the hydrangea’s season. Hydrangea-shaped cakes are sold in this shop exclusively for the season. Isn’t it a nice idea to sell the seasonal flower-shaped cakes like this?


The hydrangea-shaped cake is covered with light blue cream colored with soda pop; the cheese cake is embedded inside. It was “beary” delicious. I enjoyed the taste of the season.
