Have you grown tired of banana bread and sourdough starters?
There’s a rainbow prism cake making the rounds on social media right now, created by Hiroya Tsunekawa, a Japanese pop-up restaurant owner and photographer, and it’s so beautiful you won’t even want to eat it.
People are so mesmerised by the colourful cake that the recipe has since gone viral, with 16,700 retweets and over 75,000 likes on Twitter.
The best part is that it’s super easy to make – so you can create your own piece of edible art at home.
You only need 30 minutes and five ingredients.
How to make a rainbow prism cake
First, the ingredients.
The recipe, which was originally shared in Japanese, has been translated by SoraNews24:
- Granulated sugar
- Shaved ice syrup or fruit juice
- Agar powder
Start by creating the cake base.
Mix 4 grams of agar powder, 150ml of water and 60 grams of granulated sugar into a pot and heat until it boils. At this point, turn the stove off, and add the next ingredient: 300ml of milk.
Once the ingredients are neatly blended together, put the base into the fridge so it can harden.
Then, get a fresh pot and repeat – however, this time, skip the milk but add 300ml of water instead, along with 20ml of shaved ice syrup or fruit juice.
Once done, pop it into the fridge to cool.
How many colours you use in your prism cake is up to you, but you’ll need to use different syrups or juices and repeat the above step with each one.
You need to keep each part of your prism cake in the fridge for 30 minutes so it gets hard enough for the final step.
Once your various colours are done, take them out and cut them into cubes – then place these on top of your base cake (the clear one – as per the first step above).
These will then blend together in your cake tin, and once you cut into it, you’ll get a “sweet and creamy” slice with a “jiggly texture” according to SoraNews24.
And, of course, a gorgeous prism look.
Eat it or stare at it, it’s your choice.
