- It's very important to use mineral water because it enhances the transparency and sweetness of the cake. Mix it.
- Make sure the agar is completely dissolved in the water.
- Bring it to a rapid boil.
- Once done, put in a round or sphere mold.You can try different flavors like I put tutti futti in one mold and some fruits (mango, strawberry, blueberry, mint leaves, basil leaves, etc) in another one. It adds some color to the bland raindrop cakes.
