LET THEM EAT CAKE

Japan is no stranger to a wacky trend, but this one is really good for you!  The latest food trend around Japan is cakes made of salad ingredients.  Created by Nagoya cafe owner and food stylist Mitsuki Moriyasu, the salad cakes were created as a healthy alternative to unhealthy baked goods and for her sons who have food allergies.  The cake is made on a base of sponge, with cheese and tofu icing, Moriyasu wanted to create something ‘cute’, and says her customers ‘enjoy eating them’.  There are now 50 different designs at Moriyasu’s cafe, and more on the way.
