Dessert rice ball cakes return with online order and new sakura flavor

By grape Japan

Omusubi Cake are a sweet spin on Japanese onigiri, or rice balls. The cake version of the traditional Japanese snack replaces the usual seaweed wrapping of rice balls with a black cocoa crepe, the rice portion with flavored sponge cake, and the filling with a flavored cream.

While originally only available via limited popup stores, Omusubi Cakes have become incredibly popular (with over 160,000 sold) so Osaka-based patisserie TSUKIICHI, where the cakes originated, are making the dessert rice balls available for online order within Japan via website

The lineup of flavors is highlighted by a new sakura flavor filled with matcha sponge cake, sakura cream, and red bean paste and pie.


Cookie and cream, mont blanc, tiramisu, earl gray, cheesecake, grapefruit, green tea, chocolat and strawberry flavors are also available.


Omusubi Cakes can be ordered online in Japan in packs as small as six and as large as 30.

REALLY DELICIOUS, I was treated by the sales lady very nicely at the Kansai store, she let me tried and I brought my special flavour. Yummy. All should try.

Do they come in 'Rock'n'Roll' flavors? I just happen to be listening to 'Rock’n’Roll Cake' by Shonen Knife this very minute! 'Yummy yummy yummy'.
