Mouthwatering Desserts ?

Look again.vegedecosalad 4 cakes surrounded by leaves

You still can’t tell can you? I know I couldn’t.

I was really surprised and amazed to find that these scrumptious looking cakes are actually salads.

They were first created by Mitsuki Moriyasu, a Japanese food stylist in 2015-2016. They took the world of food by storm. This particular kind of cake is now known as “vegedeco salad.”

Mitsuki Moriyasu now has her own web site called Vegedeco. You can reach her at

According to Celia Lloyd-Jones in the Telegraph,

The peculiar creations are made by blending whole vegetables, roots and all, with soybean flour to create a spongy feel. Little or no sugar is added and for the icing, she mixes vegetables with cream cheese or tofu. The result is a low-carbohydrate, gluten-free cake which counts as one of your five a day.

That’s not chocolate atop the Pink Pearl Vegedeco pictured above, but burdock root shavings. The “cake” itself is a red onion mousse with sliced olives and bits of mozzarella cheese.

  1. Amazing discovery Tanya. They really look good and innovative. Our mind is set to associate cakes with desserts and sweets so I wonder how this will appeal to the palate? However I believe look good will taste good. A must try 😋
