Raindrop Cake

The Raindrop Cake has now made it to London and I was sent to Yamagoya to photograph the chef responsible for introducing it to the UK. The Cake has already seen great success in NY and it’s place of origin, Japan. The cake, which got its name from what it looks like, resembles a raindrop resting on a leaf. Like a raindrop, a slight movement will make it wobble, however, it will not pop. The cake itself melts in your mouth, and leaves you pallet feeling fresh. It doesn’t taste of much but comes with roasted soybean flour and sugar cane syrup which allows it to enter the land of deserts. This cake is currently only available at Yamagoya, and is introduced to us by the restaurant owner Fah Sundravorakul. So, instead of running around London on a rainy day, with your nose pointing up, and your mouth wide open and a teaspoon with sugar in hand, ready to chase any raindrop hitting your tongue, have a little go at this little wonder of a cake.
