This meal is hosted.
With the drought, Angelenos are obsessing over rain. First there is The Rain Room at LACMA, now we’re freaking out over The Raindrop Cake. Then again, this dessert caused quite a stir in NYC, where they’re no strangers to rain.
It’s made from alkaline water and agar agar. If you get it with the sugar cane syrup, it’s 100% vegan! This is the matcha version, which has cream. The powdery stuff you see is roasted soybean flour.
Leslie Durso and I did a Facebook Live video this morning at Smorgasburg LA for Tastemade Facet’s Page. Watch to see our reaction, plus our interview with Darren Wong, the founder/creator of the Raindrop Cake, around the 9:30 min. mark.
