Sally's Cup Cake
Sally's Cup Cake (サリーズカップケーキ) is a cupcake specialty store founded in 2013 in Sapporo city, and is near Maruyama Park (円山公園) and Subway Tozai Line Maruyama Park Station. Ms. Risa Daito (大藤 梨沙) is an owner. The head office is in Maruyama, and a branch opens a business at Sapporo Factoy. They serve cupcakes and suger cookie icing.
My visited place is the head office. The shop is small, but their concept is "Kawaii", so their shop is full of fairy-tale world. Their interior decoration, a website and a leaflet are also good design. A place for custmers to enjoy foods and drinks freely is provided, too.
Maruyama (円山) is a mountain at an altitude of 226 m in the westrn part of Chuo Ward, Sapporo city, and used to be called "Mt. Moiwa (モイワ山)". It means "A small mountain" in Ainu language. Mr. Michitoshi Iwamura (岩村通俊), a chief of Hokkaido Development Commission, named this neighborhood as Maruyama Village after Maruyama in Kyoto in 1872, and the mountain has been called "Mt. Maruyama" before people knows it. Around the foot of the Mt. Mauyama is called "Maruyama Park" at present, and it is a place of recreation and relaxation for Sapporo citizen. The large area is about 70 ha, and Hokkaido-jingu Shrine (北海道神宮), Maruyama Athletic Field (円山総合運動場) and Maruyama Zoo (円山動物園) are built at the site, and Maruyama Virgin Forest (円山原始林) grows, too, and this park has rich nature. It is well-known for a place famous for cherry blossoms and fall foliage, and a lot of tourists come. In addition, the Mt. Maruyama can be hiked, too, and trails are built for about 3 km in total length, and the time it takes to hike the mountain is around 1 hour. Article is here
Sapporo Factory (サッポロファクトリー) a commercial complex in Chuo ward, Sapporo city, and has been opened a business since 1993. Here used to be the first beer factory "Hokkaido Development Commission Brewery (開拓使麦酒醸造所)" in Japan. The ruins of buildings utilized an old atomosphere were rebeared as one of the largest shopping malls in the Japan. About 7,000,000 people come. Brick Building (レンガ館) has beautiful ivied walls, so superb fall foliage can be enjoyed in an autumn. Article is here
Sapporo (札幌) that about 1,960,000 people live is the largest city in Hokkaido. Although there are various theories, its origin of the name is "Dry Big River (乾いた大きな川)" in Ainu language. A population of the Sapporo is the 4th largest city after Yokohama, Osaka and Nagoya in japan, and the population accounts for 36 % of Hokkaido's population! So the Sapporo has been flourished as the center of the Hokkaido. The area of the Sapporo is 1,121.26 km2, and is about as big as Hong Kong, and is the 7th largest city in the Hokkaido. The Sapporo is also famous as a tourist city, and about 15 million people come. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 25 degrees in a summer, but it is easy to live without moisture. I always feel a little cool. It is cold that temperature falls to nearly -10 degrees in a winter, and amount of snowfall sometimes has more than 1 m. Article is here
I visited here around 14:00 on a weekday. 15 types of cupcakes are displayed at a showcase, and I could not decide what to order. So I asked a waitress about shop's recommendation, and she replied me "Seasonal Cherry Blossom Cupcake (チェリーブロッサム) or Lemon and Honey Cupcake (レモンアンドハニー), or Powdered Green Tea and Milk Cupcake (抹茶ミルク) are recommended". Therefore I ordered the Lemon and Honey Cupcake and the Powdered Green Tea and Milk Cupcake to go. The prices were JPY 360 and JPY 380. By the way, beautiful waitresses have a good reputation.
The Lemon and Honey Cupcake was topped with designed lemon cream. On the other hand, the Powdered Green Tea and Milk Cupcake had adzuki bean and powdered green tea, and was topped with designed milk butter. Both appearance looked beautiful, too.
I ate those immediately. The cream was rich taste. Surprisingly, 100% Calpis Butter was used in the cakes. It is said that it is rare butter, and only 1 pound cream can be extracted when 30 bottles calpico are produced. I was impressed at creamy and rich taste. It was tasty! Thanks for the tasty cupcakes!
