The Glorious Raindrop Cake Has Come To The U.S. [Video]

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.
