This curious-looking cake that resembles a raindrop might not be anything new in its origin country of Japan, where it’s known as ‘Mizu Shingen Mochi’, but the ‘Raindrop Cake’ will definitely be novel when it hits the Big Apple this weekend.
New Yorker Darren Wong will debut the cake at the city’s Smorgasburg food market happening between 2 and 3 April 2016.
The delicate, transparent dessert is created using water and agar–a vegan alternative to gelatin.
“The cake has to maintain its shape but still have the texture of water,” Wong explained to The Huffington Post.
‘Raindrop Cake’ is served with molasses-like sugar and kinako–roasted soybean flour commonly served with mochi.
Not only is the dessert fascinating to look at, but also fun to eat and nearly calorie free.
Watch the video below to see how it’s made.
