Japan: Healthy! These colourful cakes are made of SALAD
Japan’s latest health craze is the salad cake
Japan is the undisputed king of coming up with innovative products which are neither wanted nor needed. For those of you that want to keep your diet in check while craving a sweet treat, or for those who just want to suck the fun out of your children's lives, the Land of the Rising Sun is back with their latest barmy offering.
Japanese artisan veggie company Vegedeco Salad have come up with a cake made from soybean-based sponge, tofu icing and decorated with all manner of vegetables and fruit, both sweet and savoury. Layers of jam have been replaced with layers of roots and peels to maximise the health benefits.
Superfoods like chia, okra and more have been included to cover all the bases, and the afternoon tea set even comes with a slice of gluten-free rice bread and vegetable drop tea. If you're over there and fancy dropping in, theVegedeco Cake Cafeopens today.

While the world's children start to cry at the tarnishing of their favourite unhealthy food, on the surface this is actually a pretty good idea. Mr Universe himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger,recommends going green at least a few days a weekto slow down our rate of environmental consumption, claiming that if you eat smart you can still get your protein intake in. Any way to innovate the process of selling vegetarian and vegan options to the public will only further that goal. However, the tractor-beam draw of thick, gooey cheat-day chocolate cake is likely to become too great.
