'Kimetsu no Yaiba' Christmas cake is here to make the perfect 'Demon Slayer’s' holiday season

By grape Japan

As Christmas has been adopted as a sort of casual celebration in Japan, it’s fun to compare and contrast the different traditions that have emerged here, with those in countries that traditionally celebrate the holiday.

One famous example is the tendency for Japanese people to eat fried chicken on Christmas rather than a full roast dinner with turkey or ham. Another interesting way that Japanese people have changed Christmas traditions to their taste is with Christmas cake. In some parts of the world, Christmas cake is a stodgy fruitcake, bursting with dried fruit and spices. But Japanese Christmas cake is much lighter, as they opt for fluffy sponge cake with cream and strawberries.

If you’re thinking of going along with the Japanese style Christmas cake this year, why not go all out and make it a "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" cake?


The officially licensed cake is topped with a festive illustration featuring various fan favorite characters and filled with plenty of strawberries. When ordering you can even select between whipped cream or chocolate cream.

There’s 39 designs to choose from, so you can pick your favorite demon slayers or demons to decorate your holiday dessert.


If you want to see all the possible designs, check out Priroll’s online shop, where the cake itself can also be preordered. One sweet Demon Slayer cake will set you back 5,400 yen and it will be sent by refrigerated delivery so you can order to anywhere in Japan.
