Cashew Chashu: the Japanese Bakery Where the Ramen Is Actually Made Out of Cake


It’s kinda like that hyper-realistic asparagus cake we saw last year, except instead of replacing something yucky with something awesome, we’re just replacing something awesome with something even more awesome.

Behold, ladies and gents, the only possible way to improve a steaming hot bowl of miso ramen topped with succulent chashu pork and freshly chopped green onions. Which is, of course, to make it out of cake.

Designed by the Machi no Kumasan bakery in Gunma, Japan, this super-convincing ramen cake goes for about 1,000 yen or $11 USD, according to Rocket News. The “noodles” are made out of chestnut and pumpkin cream, the “broth” is Earl Grey jelly, the “chashu pork” is raspberry jelly and the “green onions” are pistachios.

Granted, the cream noodles look a bit more like udon than ramen to me, but hey it’s dinner made out of dessert. I’m sure we can let it slide.
