If you’re thinking that this is a giant water droplet on a plate, guess again. It’s actually Mizu Shingen Mochi, a new Japanese rice cake that certainly tricks our eyes but is supposedly delicious. It even uses water harnessed from the Japanese Alps! The makers of this dessert say that it tastes like a traditional mochi, which is sweet and usually sprinkled with soybean powder and paired with brown syrup.
It looks like a large drop of water, but it’s actually a cake. This Japanese invention is as delicate as it looks and sounds, but it needs to be consumed in only 30 minutes, after which it will simply turn into a sweet puddle of water. So it needs to be consumed in the company’s shops and cannot be ordered ‘to go’.
The water cake looks like a large bowl of jelly without the color. This delicate sweet is perfect for spring~plus it is sakura season now in Japan.
