I don’t know about you, but when I think about cake, I think about decadent, luxurious chocolate and heavy cream. This cake is far from that. In fact, you might even be tempted to think it’s a giant drop on water looking at it. While it sure looks like a large drop of water, this is actually a Japanese rice cake. This strange delicacy is as delicate as it looks and needs to be consumed in only 30 minutes after being made, or else it will simply turn into a sweet puddle of water. That’s no good, since the tasty dessert is meant to melt in your mouth not on your plate.
