About 400 years ago, when the Portuguese merchant sailors docked on the shores of Japan and set up trading posts, they had no idea their "castella" cakes would be such a fixture in Japanese culinary nomenclature.

That being said, Castella Cakes are insanely nostalgic and make for great gifts. I'll do what I can to bring back a log for the office. But no promises.
