This year’s desserts will represent an even wider variety of sea creatures than last year’s event, including tarts reminiscent of cute hermit crabs using waffle cones in the shape of conch shells, bread made to look like seals, cream puffs patterned after fish, and moray eel-shaped rolled cakes among others. There will also be special Blue Mermaid Jelly and macaroons made to look like mother-of-pearl oysters matching the mood of the summer season.
During July, the hotel will also prepare special foods made from watermelon, which is one of the most popular fruits eaten in Japan during the summer. These seasonal desserts and beverages include watermelon and strawberry tart, watermelon fruit punch and other refreshing menu items.
Jurin is known for its specially prepared seasonal meals based upon fairytales and childhood stories including Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Peter Rabbit. Ppatissiers will display their talents by creating a wide variety of delicious desserts divided into five different categories on a 15-metre-long counter for customers to enjoy every day from 3pm to 5.30pm during the event.
