A beautiful white roll cake has just been released by Seven Eleven. This dessert is only available in Hokkaido. It reminds me of the snow white scenery there.
F.Y.I., “Shiro" means “white” in Japanese.
Egg whites were used to make the sponge cake which wraps the cheesecake whipped cream inside! 2 different kinds of Hokkaido cream cheese were used to make the cheesecake whipped cream.
Look at the generous portion of cream inside. I can’t wait to dig in!
It was definitely a taste for grown-ups. It wasn’t too sweet. The filling tasted just like the rich cream cheese. The lemon juice made it very refreshing. What a perfect balance.
I would recommend this roll cake for someone who wants to try richer tasting roll cake.
I enjoyed the taste of the main ingredient cheese. I think this dessert is perfect for winter. If you live in Hokkaido or if you are planning to visit on vacation, don’t miss out on this dessert!
