Bake Your Own Ramen Cake

| Ramen , Sweets

Okay, ramen may make everything better—but this still sounds like a terrible idea, right? Shift your gag reflex back into reverse: this isn’t cake made of ramen. It’s normal, sweet, delicious cake made to look like ramen.

As YouTube chef Ochikeron explains step-by-step, the noodles are made of sweet potatoes squeezed through a pastry bag, the pork is a marble cookie, and the soup is tea-flavored jelly. Underneath it all you’ll find two layers of sponge cake. Garnish with pumpkin seed and enjoy!
