People these days are fascinated with everything that is picture-perfect, thanks to social media. Even our food, snacks, and beverages should seem pleasant and appetising.  

The 'Japanese Sando cake’, also known as ‘Furutsu Sando’ is one of them, according to Pinterest. This bread and cream dessert or snack is not only beautiful to look at, but it also tastes great.  

This delectable Japanese fruit sandwich is thought to have originated in Japan during the 1940s. Sandwiches were first sold in Japanese markets during World War II, when western influence was beginning to impact the markets. This is when they began experimenting with different combinations to have it as a low-cost dessert or as a cake.  

Despite the fact that it is a relatively old dessert, it has gone viral in the past two years around the world because many on social media found it to be visually appealing. The best part is that it doesn't even require a large number of ingredients. Though strawberries are primarily used in Sando, people are experimenting with other fruits such as kiwis and mangoes as well.  

You may eat it as a dessert at any time; it's ideal for those evenings when you want something sweet but not too sweet. It's the ideal combination of sugar and fruit.  

You can make your Pinterest-famous Japanese Sando cake with just a few slices of white or milk bread, fresh fruits, and whipped cream. 

Quick steps to make your own Japanese fruit sando cake:  


    White bread or milk bread (you could even make your own fresh bread if that suits you) 

    Whipped cream 

    Powdered sugar 

    Fresh Strawberries/ mangoes/ kiwis 

    Vanilla extract to flavour the whipped cream  


  1. Add powdered sugar to the cream and whip it until it forms soft peaks. 
  2. Slice the strawberry thinly and set aside 
  3. Take your bread slices and spread two layers of cream on each one of them. 
  4. Gently put the sliced strawberries on one slice and lay the other slice of bread on top of it. 
  5. Chill in freezer for two hours 
  6. Take it out, cut the sando from the centre and enjoy.  

This sando is so easy to make and so delicious that you will fall in love with it right away. 

In place of strawberries, kiwis or mangoes could be used. Remember that the cream should not be excessively sweet, as this will throw the sandwich's balance off.  

You can make this sando even more colourful and drool-worthy by using a mix of two fruits instead of just one.
