What you’re about to see will either horrify you or delight you (or both). This blob-like dessert (dessert?) is called the Raindrop Cake, and it’s become one of the most talked-about food trends of the year since it debuted at Smorgasburg in Brooklyn, NY. It’s translucent, calorie-free, and basically tasteless. While this might be the first you’ve ever heard of it, it’s actually not new — it’s a variation of a traditional Japanese dish that people have been eating for years. But this exact Raindrop Cake is from NYC-based chef Darren Wong, who explains, “It’s a light, delicate, and refreshing raindrop made for your mouth.”
Where can you get a Raindrop Cake? Look no further than Cafe Lafayette as they also offer three flavour options, each containing a little over zero calories so there’s no reason to talk yourself out of just ordering all three! If Cafe Lafayette is too far, we also recommend Tokyo Express seeing as they also offer the sweetest and most traditional options of Raindrop Cake and are most popularly known for their guilt-free brown sugar option that comes served with stone-ground soybeans. While Angel Kiss is another fan favorite from Tokyo Express, each option is just as refreshing and beautiful as the next.
