Larva Chocolate Christmas Cake 2014 Korea

It’s basically a tradition here in South Korea to buy a cake at Christmas. All of the major supermarkets Homeplus, Lotte Mart, E-Mart etc provide them as well as bakery chains Tours Les Jours and Paris Baguette and other stores such as Dunkin Donuts and Baskin Robins. The cake ranges are extensive and differ in flavors, styles, sizes and prices. It’s possible to find a small cake for around 10,000 ($10) but the rest are normally between 20,000 upto 40,000+.

The cake we received from a friend this year cost around 30,000 (not sure on the exact price as it was a gift) and came from the bakery chain Tours Les Jours (뚜레쥬르). It’s a large chocolate cake with a Larva Cartoon / Christmas themed design on the top. Larva is a popular Korean animated series, which has been running since 2011. It’s basically taken over from Angry Birds as one of the most commercialized thing here in South Korea.

The cake is delicious and tastes more like a western cake than many Korean cakes which can have strange flavors (green tea) or toppings (tomato). If you’re celebrating Christmas and the new year here in South Korea then a Cake is a great gift for friends, family and/or co-workers.
