If You Haven't Heard of the Raindrop Cake - You Will Soon!

In food news today...

Forget rainbow bagels and 'freakshakes'! The next dessert craze is upon us and it's a cake that looks like a breast implant!

The 'rainbow cake' was created by chef Darren Wong and debuted at a trendy Brooklyn food market just last week. To his delight, I'm sure, the raindrop cake has taken off on social media and is already making headlines worldwide. 

When you see the cake it's easy to understand why it quickly became blogger-bait. True to its name, the unique dessert looks like a drop of water - although most are drawing more accurate comparisons to a silicone breast implant!

But what is it exactly?

"The Raindrop Cake is inspired by traditional Mizu Shingen Mochi from Japan," the website explains. "It’s a light, delicate and refreshing raindrop made for your mouth."

The traditional Mizu Shingen Mochi is normally comprised of water, granulated sugar, agar, brown sugar syrup and soybean flour. 

It also needs to be eaten within half an hour or it will dissolve into a puddle of water!
