Teardrop cake or Mizu Shingen Mochi

A few weeks ago I have heard of teardrop cakes for the first time. I did a short internet research and found some pictures featuring this genuine Japanese dessert. Instantly I fell in love with its poetic appeal. I decided to give it a try in my current rose production. Adding rosewater and trying several recipes it took me a few attempts to figure out a proper way of creating the stunning drop. But now I am able to present a special rose flavored sort of teardrop cake which reflects my intention to portrait the rose theme in a romantic but contemporary style.
