After thinking about it a while, though, I wonder how popular carrot cake would actually be in Japan, it’s just so sweet, it’s kind of heavy (as far as cakes go) and so fattening. It’s the complete opposite of the standard Japanese okashi. This is really something to think about though. With American fast food restaurants like KFC, McDonald’s, Burger King, etc., really making their mark here in Japan, maybe it’s only a matter of time before Japan’s tastes change.
I know it’s not healthy, but Christmas and carrot cake kind of go together in the Ash Family household stateside. As for now, though, I think that pretty much dashes my hopes of getting a good homemade slice of carrot cake this holiday season…gosh darn it!!! I LOVE carrot cake, that moist nutty bread, that sweet goodness, that artery-clogging, sweet to my soul, cream cheese frosting. You know what? I’d better end this post here before I make myself hungry or homesick or something.
Thanks for reading 🙂
