Cultural note from the author:
When I was a child, my mum sometimes had visitors at our house on the weekends. This turned out to be a special occasion for me as my mum always bought nice cakes from the nearby cake shop. I still remember volunteering to make hot drinks for the visitors, so that I can join them to eat the special cakes! Please have a look at the variety of delicious cakes you can find at Sweets Takayoshi in Utsunomiya, Tochigi in Japan. Their cakes remind me of those special cakes I had during my childhood.
