Sit down to a nice bowl of ramen...cake?



So there you are perusing Machi no Kumasan in Takasaki City looking for something sweet to take home. When, all of a sudden, you notice a lovely bowl of ramen in the window. Now why would there be a bowl of ramen inside the case with the cakes? That's because, it is a cake.

These cakes, which run 1,000¥ ($11) each, will fool most people gazing upon it for the first time. The ingredients for the cake goes as follows:

Noodles – Japanese chestnut and kabocha pumpkin cream
Broth – Early Grey jelly
Bamboo shoot – grilled apple
Egg – annin tofu (Almond jelly)
Chashu pork – raspberry jelly
Green onions – pistachios

The popularity of the chashu ramen cakes has risen so much that Machi no Kumasan has started making more style of ramen cakes like katsu (pork cutlet), soba (buckwheat noodles), and chawan mushi (egg custard).

Now to just find a way to get one over here and in front of me to eat.
