The newest food trend to sweep New York City looks like a tit.
It’s actually supposed to look like a droplet of water, according to creator Darren Wong, who has named his new fad the Raindrop Cake. The gelatinous half-orb is “inspired by” a Japanese dessert called Mizu Shingen Mochi—it’s made of water and gelatin and is served over brown sugar and kinako, or roasted soy flour. For now, it is only available on weekends at the Brooklyn festival of needless edible inventions, Smorgasburg.
Someone was actually talking about this on Deadspin day and they said it tasted like water flavored jello and nothing else. It actually sounds about as tasty as eating a breast implant.
