If you’ve never heard of a raindrop cake, let me break it down for you. This Japanese dessert is basically a translucent dome made of water and sugar and looks kind of like a raindrop. Naturally, it’s become pretty internet-famous. Luckily for us, we don’t have to go through the hardships of trying to make one ourselves – you can now get one in Melbourne.
Yu Kitchen is serving a raindrop jelly cake at its Chadstone restaurant. This particular raindrop cake is infused with Sichuan pepper then topped with strawberries, palm sugar, gold dust and served in a cloud of dry ice. Yes, it's that extra.
If you’re keen to try this luxe dessert for yourself, head to Yu Kitchen. One serve will cost you $13.80.
