                      I really don’t get how they consider that a cake because it’s not.

                              I love raindrop cakes, they're such a satisfying dessert to eat, I wish they were more accessible in resturaunts.

                                I'm curious if she had make the cake in reverse if it would have been better. That is, a jelly cake with a peanut butter topping. I feel like the cake came out tasting soggy because the peanut butter didn't do well in the raindrop version.

                                          It is not a cake! Agree... In Thailand, we make plain one in a flat tray, we cut it in cubes or strips... Eat with brown sugar or sweet coconut milk and some crush ice and wot ever u wanna put in it, like water chestnut, jackfruit, etc..

                                            She could've done the standard clear drop and sprinkle toasted breadcrumbs on it for that toasted flavor rather than trying to infuse it with the water which changed the color and dropped the ph. For a first attempt though, a solid success.

This girl is not a chef. The Asian dude who invented the raindrop cake, he's a chef. Just check them out side by side and note the difference in their intensity and focus. I mean technically if they're paying her to be a "chef" in that kitchen then they can call her a professional chef. But i can tell by the way she talks and carries herself that she's not a chef. No way.
