If you want to find weird stuff on the internet Japan is usually a safe bet and with this Japanese water cake Japan lived up to its reputation once again.

The water cake or Mizu Shingen Mochi as it is called is a round blob of water which is boiled with rice flour, left to cool in a mould and then served with soybean powder and a brown sugar syrup. But you have to eat it right away because the shape of the cake will only hold up for about 30 minutes, then it will start to lose its shape.

The company behind this is called Kinseiken Seika and is from the Yamanashi prefecture in Japan. And from what we have heard there is a small food craze over this cake going on in Japan at the moment.

The cake is a variation of a more traditional Japanese rice cake but this one is made using something called gyuhi which gives the cake the softer texture. All this is according to Rocket News 24 which is a website dedicated to mostly cultural cool news from Asia, its worth checking out so pay them a visit.
