The Internet is a wonderful universe of all things to be obsessed about! If you haven’t a clue what a Raindrop Cake is, then we’re here to clue you in:

According to Slate, NYC chef Darren Wong’s Raindrop Cake is a take on the mizu shingen mochi, which a Japanese dessert made from mineral water, gelatin or agar. Served with roasted soybean flour and sugar cane syrup, the idea is for it to… taste like a refreshing raindrop, in your mouth!

What do we do with a cake that.. isn’t really a cake? It’s all about the experience! Chef Wong stresses the cake is mild, with a delicate texture that will just melt right in your mouth. Pair that with strong, sweet toppings… and you’re in for a great dessert!
