This is a very simple flavor profile: vanilla, raspberries, and green tea. Vanilla, forever in harmony with all things sweet, has a way of tying in the raspberry and green tea, two seemingly odd flavors to put together but well harmonized in the presence of the vanilla and dairy flavors.
This cake is not assembled as a classic cake. In fact, there is really nothing classic about it. It is assembled into cubes, which are the individual servings themselves. The portion may look large, but the whipped milk and pastry cream are as light as air.
