We all know that salads are good for us. They’re chock-full of all the goodies that our bodies need, but seriously – how BORING. Give me a cake over greens any day.

But what if you could have all the goodness of a salad and the visual stimulation of a cake? We present to you – the salad cake….

Salad has NEVER looked so appetising

Food stylist Mitsuki Moriyasu is set to open a new cafe in Japan, The VegieDeco Cafe, which specialises in these drool-worthy creations that are disappointingly amazingly just snazzied-up salads.  The ‘frosting’ is tofu or cream cheese blended with vegetables and the sponge part is made using natural ingredients like soybean flour.

If the saying that you “eat with your eyes” is true, then Mitsuki is on to a winner. These are a fab idea to make your run-of-the-mill boring salad a bit more exciting, but as far as cake goes, I’ll take mine with flour. And butter. And sugar….

Do you have an interesting way to jazz-up your salads? Would you eat a salad cake?
