Thinking About Japanese Literature Through Cakes

Modern Japanese literature must be very eclectic, like this!
I had this 'cherry blossom mousse with Japanese green tea flavored cake' at a French style cafe/ patisserie. This is like Mishima literature; ingredients are very Japanese, but its making method is completely Western. 
On top of the cake, Japanese national flower, sakura (or cherry blossoms) made with sprinkled icing sugar using petal-shaped template, can be seen like a signature.
Very eclectic, but anything tasty would be appreciated. The same can be said for novels!
