Have you ever heard of a water cake? Probably not! I know I had no idea what this strange looking thing was? How on earth can this be called a cake? It’s crazy!
So what is it? It’s a clear and jiggly Japanese dessert that looks exactly like a huge drop of water.
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.
No one can quite believe their eyes as the photo was posted on Twitter on Sunday, and it’s gone viral in Japan since with over 23k likes and 19k retweets.
