Its not mochi or a cake, its agar (konnyaku). Mochi is a glutinous rice cake made from pounded glutinous flour

it has a very chewy sweet texture and it melts in your mouth, it goes very well with the sand looking thing which is called kinako, which has a very sweet and sticky texture once mixed with a liquid, and then you also use soy sauce which mildens the sweetness , its a very unique and appetizing combination. I know, its hard to believe xD

What is it made of? Is it from seaweed? Is it collagen? Looks more like a paperweight than something edible.

Someone said it's made of agar, which is similar to gelatin. I thought it was really beautiful. This is more of an art piece than something to inspire salivation. Very beautiful, though.

I get the "water drop" part, but cake?

I think the powdered stuff on the side is the 'cake' part...kind of a 'deconstructed' dessert. Looks like an agar/gelatin water drop with powdered 'cake' next to it.

It's probably kanten... a jelly that's traditionally used in Japanese sweets, so it's soft
