[jules' pics] Piece of Cake

And here is the piece of cake that one must consume after running to work:
SaHa Tortay
It is not as easy as it looks, however since, in order to enjoy this piece of cake one must ask the Starbucks staff for a "SaHa TorTay" while pointing desperately at the cake visible behind the glass. However, it is worth the linguistic gymnastics, as it is considerably better than the cake you get at that Hotel Sacher in Vienna. The "WaHip" (the white stuff) costs 30yen extra and they weigh the plate while they put it on to make sure you don't overdose. Consequently we are wondering if we really need to go to the EGU in Vienna this year.
Erratum: James says that the run to work is only 10.4km rather than 11.5km. Oh well.

So, which came to Japan first, the sachertorte or the fork?

Well you wouldn't want one without the other, so I'd guess they probably came together on the black ships.
