A bite of water conquers New York City


Chef Dominique Ansel introduced the Cronut in Japan last year but now a Japanese dessert, Mizu Shingen Mochi, is introduced in New York City. A bite of water which is as popular as the cronut in Japan. It’s a water cake or as they will call it in New York, a raindrop cake.

Raindrop cake, really a bite of water?

The raindrop cake will be served at Smorgasburg, a popular outdoor market in in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, where it’s sold as raindrop cake.

Advantage: this cake looks and feels like water and it’s calorie free. The cake is a combination of water and agar-agar (a vegan gelatine substitute). Creator Darren Wong told the Huffington Post that it’s a delicate job to create the cake: “The cake has to maintain its shape but still have the texture of water.” He will serve the cake with two condiments: kinako (roasted soy bean flour) and a syrup that looks like molasses. The Huffington Post describes eating this bite of water, as an experience for the senses.

So if you’re a foodie and you’re always fighting to remain in shape? Start finding the correct proportion of water and agar-agar and eat some raindrop cake, once in a while…. 😉
