Baumkuchen Fairy Forest is a baumkuchen using only the finest local ingredients from Hokkaido that is known as Japan’s most airy and spongy (best-before date: 14 days).
The secret behind the great taste of Baumkuchen Fairy Forest is the carefully selected wheat, fresh cream and eggs from Hokkaido as well as the techniques of master pâtissiers.
Using an oven fired by traditional oak wood, the company’s master pâtissiers bake each individually prepared baumkuchen to perfection, producing an airy and spongy baumkuchen like few others.
The added airiness and sponginess is created by aging the dough at a certain temperature.
The company’s products can be purchased at its retails stores mainly in the Central Hokkaido area and at major department stores and airports in the prefecture.
