Now You Can Have Your Cake, And Drink It Too

"'Mizu shingen mochi' literally translates into 'the water cake' in Japanese. The original Shingen mochi is an extremely famous dessert - a delectable rice cake usually topped with soya bean powder and brown sugar syrup. It is an exclusive trademark product of a Japanese company, Kinseiken Seika. Technique wise, Mizu shingen mochi borrows closely from shingen mochi, but melts in your mouth quicker. This water cake is prepared with fresh water sourced from Mount Kaikoma - the Southern Japanese's Alps.

This cake is so delicate that it loses its form in just 30 minutes or as and when it is taken at room temperature. The sweet delicacy melts into your mouth as soon as it touches the tongue. Mizu shingen mochi was first introduced last year during summers and after its smashing popularity, it has been brought into the market again this year. It will be available at the Kinseiken Seika store in Yamanashi, Japan, till the end of this September."

Sure.  Since this is going viral I'm sure we will be seeing it other places soon.  I want to try it!
