Ever heard of a Japanese water cake or any water cake at all? This water mochi was first served and made popular by a confectionery in Yamanashi. As if that wasn’t impressive enough, now Twitter user mithiruka shared a pic of a clear water cake in the shape of a sleeping cat.
Twitter user Mithiruka shared a pic of a clear water cake….in the shape of a sleeping cat. This image has since gone viral.
And now Japanese Twitter users can’t stop sharing these photos! The Japanese water cat has now spread across the internet.
You might remember the famous Japanese water cake in the form of a raindrop. This looks like a large drop of water but it’s actually a cake! It’s called Mizu Shingen Mochi, clear rice cake dessert resembling an enormous water drop.
Mithiruka also shared this to show that these cakes can come in many different shapes. It kind of reminds me of Jello Knox Blox. So wiggly and jiggly.
You can make them in most any shape starting with the circle. Here someone made the Hello Kitty version.
This is all it takes to make the Japanese Water Cake. Looks simple enough…don’t you think? You can order the supplies you needed right over the internet too.
To the naked eye it may look like the return of Clear Pepsi or a giant bubble of water, when in fact it’s a transparent piece of Japanese rice cake.
Make enough for two when you create this!
The teddy bear mochi is one of the cutest Japanese water cakes I ever seen! It’s so darn cute you really don’t want to cut into it. But why make an edible art if you can’t eat it. Let’s hope it tastes as good as it looks.
