Things move fast in Japan, where novelty innovation is like a bullet train of awesomeness. Last month the famous square watermelons were topped by loaves of watermelon bread. Today they’ve both been bested by this tantalising watermelon cake. It’s called Suika Baumkuchen, which is a combination of Japanese and German that translates to mean “watermelon tree cake.” Suika means watermelon in Japanese and Baumkuchen is a type of German cake that’s cooked on a spit and resembles the rings of a tree when sliced. So a cake that looks like a watermelon and is prepared in the style of ring-shaped baumkuchen.

Suika Baumkuchen is made in Japan by online retailer Rakuten. The red melon flesh is a tasty mousse that’s flavored with real watermelon juice. The rind is made of rice flour cake that’s also melon-flavored. And don’t worry about avoiding the watermelon seeds. They’re chocolate chips, so you’ll actually be hoping for a slice containing lots of them:
