I’m sad that sakura season is already over. It feels like it went by so fast this year. Of course it always goes by quickly - that’s kind of the point - but I felt like it lasted longer last time. This year, it just flew by. Only one more sakura season left before we move back to the States. The fact that I’m ridiculously allergic doesn’t change the fact that it’s beautiful, and I’m going to miss it like crazy.
There’s a ridiculous amount of chocolate in this cake. Devil’s food cake with ganache filling and a ganache glaze under chocolate fondant, with ganache piping and modeling chocolate flowers. I think I gained a pound just typing that.
