Imagine seeing a cake so beautiful you just want to launch into it… only to find vegetables in your mouth.


Well, that's the latest food craze in Japan.

According to CNN, salad cakes are taking over the country, as many are seeing them as a healthy alternative to traditional baked goods.

Japan's Mitsuki Moriyasu invented  "salad cakes", made entirely of vegetables, in 2015.

Called Vegedeco Salad (decorated vegetables), they first came on the scene in 2015 after cafe owner and food stylist, Mitsuki Mooriyasu, wanted to enjoy some guilt-free baking.

The icing is made out of tofu, the sponge cake is made from soy powder, eggs and vegetable oil and Mitsuki uses natural vegetable colouring to decorate her creations.

Then, once you bite inside, you will find marinated, cooked and diced veggies.

This next-level cake, flavored with pumpkin, has broccoli, cauliflower, beets and purple sweet potato inside, wrapped in yellow cauliflower, purple petit veil and amaranth sprouts.

"It looks like a normal cake — but it's made of only veggies. You can have it for breakfast, lunch… and it's very suitable for dinner with wine.

"Each cake tastes different, depending which vegetables we use, but I would say it tastes like something you've never had before," Mitsuki told CNN.

Lads, we don't know how we feel about this…
