Girls’ Sweets Coffret Christmas Buffet to be Held at Hilton Tokyo Odaiba

17.October.2018 | FOOD

Christmas is loved particularly by girls in Japan as it’s the season when all the sparkly items begin to fall and flicker. Hilton Tokyo Odaiba is bringing a Christmas buffet this year which it is calling the Girls’ Sweets Coffret. It’s inspired by the “Christmas Coffret” cosmetic sets that are sold during the Christmas season only and tickle the hearts of girls across the country.

 

Coffret is a French word that refers to a small jewel box. Searches for the term “Christmas Coffret” have been on the increase in Japan since 2015 and in 2016 and 2017 ranked in the top 10 most searched Christmas related terms by women. Hilton Tokyo Odaiba is responding to this by packing everything a girl could want into their Christmas buffet.

The buffet is overlooked by a bright pink Christmas tree under which are all presents a girl could hope for including a dress, jewel box, flowers and more―all edible. A cute Santa Claus, reindeer and snowmen also decorate the table in all their delicious dessert glory. The colour palette is girly but stylish, with pink as the main colour and blacks and whites everywhere else.

 

There will also be a photo spot decked out with a pink Christmas tree, huge life-sized presents and other Christmas motifs. What’s more is that guests who attend during the event dressed in something pink or wearing ribbons will receive a special drink.


The line-up of desserts all have some very enticing names. Translated from Japanese, some to look forward include the “Going Out With Your in My Best Dress – Princess Tart,” “Like a Romantic Bride – Pink Dress Strawberry Chiffon Cake,” “What I Want the Most: Jewellery – Yogurt Panna Cotta Jelly,” “Drag Me Away – Pink Pearl Cupcakes,” and more.

Also on the list is a cake made to look like Santa’s belly called “I’ll Start My Diet Tomorrow – Cranberry Mascarpone Santa Cake.” There’s also the the “Santa’s Happy Helpers – Reindeer Chocolate Cake.”

There’s a range of Christmas classics too like the yule log and stollen as well as a tree-shaped mohn plunder. If you’re looking for Christmas treats this year then look no further!

  • Alice in Wonderland Halloween Themed Dessert Buffet to Arrive at Hilton Tokyo

    09.August.2018 | FOOD / SPOT

    A new dessert buffet dubbed ‘Aice in Halloween Trick’ is arriving this fall from September 14 at Hilton Tokyo’s first floor Marble Lounge.

    In the run up to the start of the buffet, the hotel’s Marble Lounge has undergone its first renovation in 30 years. The room now holds more entertainment value to welcome story-driven dessert buffets together with decorations.

     

    The new buffet includes close to 20 desserts with the themes Alice in Wonderland and Halloween as well as 10 light foods. The buffet is also ornamented with small decorations. Not only does everything promise to be delicious, it also looks beautiful too, so much so that you’ll be left wondering what’s a dessert and what’s a meal. This is the chefs’ little ‘trick.’

     

    The hotel’s dessert buffets were first showcased with projection mapping back in 2017. That is set to return with some new realistic trick art.

    The chic red and black imagery of the desserts, decorations and autumn fruits are inspired by a more mature Alice.

    The above dessert, called “Her Majesty Queen Alice,” is made with chestnut bavarois, wild strawberries and red currents and is coated in chocolate powder. It has a crunchy cookie texture.

    The above dessert is a refreshingly sweet tart made with high quality Valrhona chocolate, a Valrhona Manjari ganache, raspberries, and aniseed.

    The selection of items you’ll be left wondering whether they’re a dessert or a meal includes the above plates made in collaboration by head chef Thomas Jacoby and executive chef Osamu Harita which line up together like Tweedledum and Tweedledee. The “Dum Open Face Cake” is a chocolate sponge cake topped with berries and the “Dee Open Face Cake” includes black olives, smoked salmon and curry flower mousse.

    There’s a range of elegant and scary desserts and light meals in the Halloween area too in addition to the Alice desserts.

     

    If you’re an Alice fan and love desserts you won’t want to miss out on this special buffet this fall.

    In this recipe, I’ll show you how to make a delicious banana cake that is tasty even if refrigerated!

     

    Ingredients

    Makes a 18cm pound cake

    2 ripe bananas

    100g unsalted butter

    50g granulated sugar

    2 eggs

    100g weak flour

     

    1

    Bring the butter to room temperature and mix it with the sugar until it becomes white. I used unsalted margarine for this.

     

    2

    Gradually add both the egg whites and yolks and pour slowly into the mixture while mixing. Mash the banana with a fork, add to the bowl, and mix.

     

    3

    Sieve in the flour and mix lightly.

    Bake at 160℃ for 40-45 minutes and it’s ready! I used a 15cm pound cake tin and muffin tin to make mine. If using a muffin tin, bake for 30 minutes.

     

    Leave to cool and use the edge of the pound cake tin to cut ears. Finish by using a chocolate pen to draw on Rilakkuma’s face.
