    The beautiful floral-inspired creamy desserts are sold in a Tokyo bakery called Havaro, which takes its name from Hana, the Japanese word for ‘flower’ and the French pronunciation of “bavarois”. You can find this pastry store in a shopping area named ‘Ichibangai’ in Tokyo Station.

    Once you see these elegant treats, you will fall madly in love with them! Sophisticated and enchanting, these floral-inspired desserts are a delight for the eyes. Actual flowers are used as the centerpiece of the creamy dessert. The petals are described as bitter, but not enough to overshadow the sweetness. The blend of flavors actually complement each other and the petals also have a surprisingly crisp texture.

    Lineup and Flavors

    The mid-sized ones are the fleurs (70mm), and the mouth-watering small domes sell for 350 yen each. The smallest treats (pictured) are called petals (35mm). These bite-sized cubes can be bought as a single treat, or in packs of eight for 1,800 yen.

    The Bavarian desserts come in different flavors which include orange, cream cheese, strawberry, vanilla yogurt, chocolate, and matcha green tea. As you might have already guessed, not only are these beautiful and tasty creations difficult to make, but they also sell out quickly! Therefore, if you want to have your choice it would be wise to come early.
