The latest food trend, for desserts that is, is the ‘Raindrop Cake’ also known as ‘Dew Cake.’

Its a take on the Japanese ‘Mizu Shingen Mochi’ and there’s no traditional cake ingredients in it, just mineral water and agar-agar (a gelling agent made from a mixture of several different carbohydrates extracted from seaweed).

The original flavor is served with sesame powder, ‘kinako’ (roasted soy bean flour) and ‘kuromitsu’ (Japanese sugar syrup, literally means ‘black honey’ that is similar to molasses)

Director Garry Marshall the octogenarian genius behind memorable films such as Valentine’s Day and New Years Eve takes a fresh and funny look at this time-honored tradition in his movie Mother’s Day, starring Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Kate Hudson and Robert Sudeikis.
