The “Fly Me to the Moon” dessert is made with three kinds of jelly: a sweet red bean jelly layer for the base, a champagne jelly filling, and a lemon-flavored sweet bean paste jelly. It’s then topped with walnut, cranberry, and raisin.
The dessert itself depicts a blue bird flying towards the moon that actually changes phases. The bird and moon are molded in such a way that when the dessert is sliced, they change to another shape. The effect makes it a truly stunning edible flipbook.
The dessert is only available in Japan at the moment, but it will surely inspire American dessert makers to innovate with similar ideas.
