The tradition of carving kashigata is over 300 years old and is used for events such as tea ceremonies, weddings, shrine offerings, and other special events. They are handmade for a special event, and each set of cakes is unique and only used for a short time. This makes each cake and therefore each Kashigata very special. It represents a special event in people's lives and the skill and creativity of the craftsman who made it.Kashigata are great to use for making cakes at home.
