This cake remains me of cherry blossoms on a rainy day. Japanese people including me are obsessed with seasons. The cherry blossoms season is such a short amount of time. It’s from the end of March to beginning of April. Many people go for a picnic, hiking and have a party under the cherry blossoms. I think our ancestors started to preserve that , it could be enjoy more traditionally . We call it Mizu Shingenmochi. It’s made from Agar -Agar. Which’s like a jelly. And substance made from algae. So unlike gelatin,it’s vegetarian. Agar itself no flavor. So pour your favorite syrup on the top.

Good job! Your pronunciation is better than average. When you talked more slowly at the beginning, your pronunciation was more clear. Pronunciation tip: algae is a soft “g,” sounds like “al-jee”.
