Hokkaido pumpkin and green tea cake

Italian Tomato (Tseung Kwan O)

Saw the poster and the Hokkaido pumpkin cake looked tempting as well as the Kagoshima purple potato cake.

Initially they tried to stop me taking photos of the cake, but after I told them it was for a food commentary, they were more friendly and offered to give me a leaflet as well. Whoopie Doo.

They only had the pumpkin one, so I bought that.
Hokkaido pumpkin and green tea cake:

It was nicely layered with soft green tea cake and pumpkin mousse garnished with cream, chocolate curls and a piece of chestnut.

It was too sweet and the pumpkin mousse had quite a fair bit of chestnut in it too which made it extremely starchy.
There was not enough pumpkin in this cake to taste it and it tasted more like a chestnut cake.
