Have you ever wished to gorge yourself into some cake without feeling guilty? Like if there is just a cake somewhere that is zero calories, fat-free, gluten-free, and vegan-friendly you can die happy? Or perhaps when you were a kid you tried drinking raindrops (no? just me? Okay 🙁 ) Well here’s a realization of that! Meet the newest food wave to hit the internet, the Raindrop Cake!

The raindrop cake is created by Asian chef and entrepreneur Darren Wong and first introduced in the streets of New York. The cake took its name from the fact that it looks like a raindrop or a morning dew. It is completely transparent and then topped with special Japanese flavors like Kinako (sweet roasted soybean flour) and Kuromitsu or “black honey” which is basically brown sugar syrup.

The cake itself is chewy and soft due to its two ingredients: water and agar. Some people compare its consistency to Jell-O. Agar is a seaweed extract and is commonly used as a gelling or solidifying agent. It is fat-free calorie-free, gluten-free, sugar-free and salt-free, making it a very healthy and yummy alternative for those with many food restrictions.

But aside from being a guilt-free dessert, people are also experimenting with their own flavors and ways to spruce up the raindrop cake. Some add vodka instead of water or even fruit juices for more flavor and color, while others really take it to the next level and become decorative with their cakes.
