The Peninsula Tokyo invites guests to indulge in a heavenly collection of summer sweets prepared with pineapple, mango, coconuts and other seasonal favorites through Aug. 31.
These summer delights, available for takeout, include the Okinawa baba (¥700), a coconutshaped cake with brioche dipped in brown sugar and rum and coated with layers of pineapple and sudachi (dark green citrus) cream covered in a coconut mousse, as well as the peach and rosemary cake (¥700), containing peach and rosemary mousse coated with vibrant peach jelly. Guests can enjoy passion fruit cheese cake (¥700), as well as mango cake (¥700), which is a delightful combination of sponge cake, matcha cream, and mango and lime jam.
