This Giant Drop of Water is Actually a Tasty Japanese Cake

If you're thinking that this is a giant water droplet on a plate, guess again. It's actually Mizu Shingen Mochi, a new Japanese rice cake that certainly tricks our eyes but is supposedly delicious. It even uses water harnessed from the Japanese Alps! The makers of this dessert say that it tastes like a traditional mochi, which is sweet and usually sprinkled with soybean powder and paired with brown syrup.

The dessert is refreshingly cool, tasty, and meant to melt in your mouth. So, if you order it, snap a quick photo and enjoy – this cake supposedly disintegrates into liquid form after 30 minutes.
