A Fuji TV news report about Chris MacDonald, a Canadian who creates and sells cakes in Japan:

Chris lives in Bizen City in Okayama Prefecture. He got into the cake business after marrying a Japanese woman in Canada and moving back to Japan with her to take over her family’s Japanese confectionery shop.

The Panda-shaped cake he invented has proven to be a huge success. The shop sold 10,000 of them last year and they now sell about 50 of them a day (at a price of 8000 yen each). Chris loves seeing the happy faces of customers who buy his cakes.

At the end of the segment, they ask Chris to make a special cake version of Fuji TV news anchor Taro Kimura. The final product is quite cool.

8000 yen! 110 Canadian! That's expensive! But it would be nice to eat a panda.
