It is a giant slime with the appearance of a caramel pudding with whipped cream and a cherry on its head.
Crème caraslimes are the king slime counterpart of the Flan slimes. This slime, as its name suggests, is not made by the same jelly goop as the other Slimes, but is instead suspected to be made of vanilla pudding with caramel at the top of the Slime's head. To complete the sweet aspect of this Slime, it also has a whipped cream topping with a candied cherry on it.
A crème caraslime will appear south of Farebury along the road only after thirty Slimes have been defeated. At the beginning of the game, it is recommended to avoid facing it in combat as it is stronger than most monsters in the region. If it lands a Desperate attack, it will likely knock out a character in a single blow. Taking a photo of the Crème caraslime is the objective of Quest #020: Crème de la Crème of Cameron's Codex.
Crème caraslime appears as an A-rank monster of the Slime family as part of the limited "Cherry Blossom Gourmet Travelog" event. He will join the party in Chapter 1, Episode 1 of the event quests and he can be fully awakened by repeating the quest at any difficulty. The crème caralime also stars in his own Battle Road, as well.
