raindrop cake

Darren Wong has brought the Raindrop Cake (which we’ve seen before in Japan) to Brooklyn, where it is getting a lot of attention.

The unique creation is made from “a precise mixture of agar (algae gelatin) and spring water”, resulting in a product that has the texture, look and taste of a giant raindrop. Although the texture is its main draw, a “very sweet nutty flavor” is achieved by serving it with koromitsu syrup (a black sugar cane) and a roasted soy flour.

The cake, which is described as not quite liquid and not quite Jell-O, debuted at Brooklyn’s Smorgasburg, although it will also be available at various additional locations:

Saturdays in Williamsburg’s Kent State Park, and starting May 1, Sundays in Prospect Park’s Breeze Hill. Hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. or until the vendors sell out. The Raindrop Cake is also available at Magick City, 37 Box Street in Greenpoint.

Check out a video on the creative process below, where you’ll likely find that it initially looks like a breast implant.

Among the latest trends in the food world are sushi burgers, which isn’t surprising when you look at the marvelous concoction pictured above. Instagram can’t resist something like that.

The “burgers” use sushi rice as a stand in for a conventional bun with raw fish, fried soft-shell crab, fried chicken or a beef patty in-between. Toppings consist of avocado, spicy mayonnaise, pickled ginger and red cabbage.

Although a sushi burger is on the menu of Japanese fast food chain MOS Burger, several homemade variations have surfaced on the Internet, including the additional examples pictured below.

Look at this fruit.

Only it isn’t fruit. No, what you are looking at is actually an assortment of cakes, pies and tarts.

This delicious, wonderful trickery would make for one heck of a gift basket on April Fools’ Day. Christine McConnell, author of the Deceptive Desserts cookbook, crafted it—but she didn’t just stop there. Check out more of her work below.

Cutthroat Kitchen host Alton Brown recently joined forces with restaurant chain Umami Burger to create a breakfast burger that looks absolutely amazing.

Dubbed the “Alton Burger”, the creation consists of a beef patty with bacon lardons, mashed up cheesy tots, cheddar, miso-maple bacon strips, homemade coffee-flavored ketchup, a sunny side up egg, and fried sage.

The burger will not only benefit your taste buds, but also charity, as $1 will be donated to the Make-a-Wish Foundation with every sale. The burger will reportedly be available at all Umami Burger locations from until April 24th.

Watch Brown provide his patented sciency overview of the burger in the video below.

Cue Homer Simpson drooling (in French).

Created by Francois Payard, the macaronut is basically a macaron and a donut blended together into one deliciously divine treat.

Payard cooked up the tasty pastry in honor of Macaron Day (a holiday created by Payard himself), which takes place on March 20th each year. It’s all about celebrating the macaron and also making an effort to help someone in need.

Participating bakeries in New York City will make a donation for every macaron purchased to City Harvest, an organization that aims to fight hunger in NYC.

The first macaronut flavor is strawberries and cream, and it looks downright yummy. Pick up your macaronut on March 20 at any of these NYC Payard bakeries.
