Yesterday, while I was browsing the web, I saw the photo of a strange cake, transparent and shaped like a drop of water. As I am curious, I searched to know more and discovered that this is a Japanese "Raindrop Cake". I have found a recipe, discovered that I had what needed to make an experiment and I tried to make one. What to say, even if it looks nice but it is the tasteless thing I have ever tried. If you want to know more you can watch this YouTube video. Are you tempted to try?
Hi! Today I ate a raindrop from the sky. ?? LOL It was delicious. ?? Leave a suggestion on what I should name my cooking series below. ? p.s.- THANK YOU SO MUC...

It looks nice. Probably the kind of cake made to be seen, not to be eaten.

No, they eat the cake, but I see no reason to eat a gelatin made with water and agar agar. It can be decorative if you can put a flower or something inside.

@LadyDuck .. But it would melt within 30 minutes...what she sprinkled above might be what made it tasty...

Anything tasteless is not for me! That is why I hate water because it has no flavor-yuck!

I drink water every day, sparkling water, but drinking water is something "eating" a ball of water is weird.

Oh, you'll have to learn to like water. It's important to drink pure water every day.

Yes, I have tried palm fruits, they have sugar, they have a taste, this thing has no taste at all.

@Asylum NO! Dark chocolate has a distinctive taste, people can like or dislike, but something that tastes like "gummy water" has no sense.

interesting experiment but if so bland not much of a cake, though tasting of nothing is better than tasting bad

This is an interesting point of view and you are right, no taste at all is always better than a bad taste.

@CRK109 The texture is more or less the same as the jell, the taste I would say "solid water".

I am tempted to try a little bit but i'll just take your word for it. I'd rather eat nata de coco ... they look the same but nata de coco taste "much better" and is so nutricious.

@LadyDuck To be honest i have no idea what is a panna cotta. I had to search for it on yahoo search. I saw several videos on how to make panna cotta. I think this one is much much better than the tasteless cake. I will try to make this one of these days.

It's quickly done, then it has to rest in the refrigerator (like the jello), but it's not even worth trying.

You surely know that we have the same saying in Italy. I was curious to look at the finished cake, is not attractive and it has no taste at all, I cannot understand the meaning to prepare something like this.

My daughter mentioned these to me under some other name - it was something's tears, I think - and I looked them up. It looks completely pointless to me, so I decided to drop the idea.

You are right, because the "no" taste is the same of water, but drinking water is more pleasant.

It can be pretty because it's transparent, let's say it can be a nice decoration, nothing more.

Asian deserts are usually very bland, not sweet or flavorful like we are used to.
