Water cake is a somewhat unique dessert served in Japan. Similar to jelly, it has soft, jiggly consistency and it also happens to be completely transparent, giving it a water-like appearance.

Known as water mochi, the dessert became popular after it was created and served in a confectionary in Yamanashi.
