This Sweet Dessert From Japan Is Filled With Images That Change With Each Slice

Are you ready for this jelly? Japanese desserts are world-famous for the painstaking detail and effort that their creators go to, to make them look as aesthetically appealing as possible. However this example, called ‘Fly Me To The Moon,’ really takes the cake!

Made by renowned sweet-maker Nagotoya, the jelly dessert, made is in the shape of a block, has a different scene embedded in the jelly with every slice taken, creating the image of a bird flying toward the moon in a ‘flip-book’ style.

Looks too good to eat right? Not so. With cranberry, Japanese walnut and raisins sitting atop the jelly, you can be sure that this dessert tastes as good as it looks.

Priced at around $30USD it is not really an everyday dessert, to be served as a follow up to some pie and mash. For those special occasions however, when you want to impress your guests, ‘Fly Me To The Moon’ is guaranteed to win you some new flans. Scroll down below to check out the mouthwatering pics yourself!

When I traveled to Japan, I walked into a bakery and passed all of the actual food--all of it was so pristine and perfectly made made that I thought they were models. It was a funny conversation-by-gestures.
