There’s something dividing our country and we have to confront it head on. I’m talking about the water cake. When it was unleashed on the world two years ago people went crazy, as the reactions went from pure wonderment to hysterical outrage. Who knew a dessert could be so full of controvery?
For those who may have missed out on the greatest thing that you’ve never seen, water cake is Japanese rice cake, also known as Mizu Shingen Mochi. Inconceivably, it’s both solid and liquid at the same time and if you don’t eat it within 30 minutes it disappears. Slow eaters, this is not for you.

Don’t worry, folks, it gets better; meow-ch better, because all the people complaining about the blobby lifeless shape of the water cake can now get it in cat form! Just when you think dessert couldn’t get better, put a cat on it.
Twitter user @mithiruka is blowing people’s minds with her see-through edible feline creations. The delicate shape looks just like a curled up sleeping cat, and like regular water cake, she serves it up with a side of kinako powder and brown sugar syrup.
Just how did she get that amazing cat-like shape? RocketNews24 lets us in on the secret: the water cake base is made then poured into a silicone mold cat that was bought from the Japanese home goods store MUJI. So simple, so delicate, so purrfect.
Seems we aren’t the only ones taken by this clear cat dessert. @mithiruka’s tweet has been liked and shared over 20,000 times and counting.
