Raindrop Cake


Gaby Hilado, Reporter

After surfing the web for hours, I came across this really cool recipe on how to make a raindrop cake. A raindrop cake is basically a jello-like cake which originated in Japan. When eating a raindrop cake, it feels like “eating a giant raindrop.” I thought it had a really cool and unique appearance so I wanted to share this recipe, which I found on The Cooking of Joy Blogspot


What You’ll Need (makes 2 cakes):

  • ⅔ cup spring water
  • ⅛ teaspoon sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoon agar powder
  • Round Mold (Sphere Ice Mold)  



  1. Add ⅔ cup water and ⅛ teaspoon of sugar into a microwavable container and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Add the ⅛ teaspoon of agar powder while stirring. Microwave for another 30 seconds, then stir for a minute. Continue microwaving and stirring until all the agar is dissolved.
  3. Transfer the mixture into the mold, and refrigerate for a couple hours or overnight.
  4. Carefully take the cake out of the mold and add any desired toppings.
  5. Enjoy the cake!
