Want to go to the moon? Eat this yummy dessert.

Have you ever taken a bite of a piece of food and just been so at awe with it that that you can think about nothing else? And have you ever seen a plate of food that had such a beautiful presentation, you didn't want to eat it?

If so, you’re part of a majority of people who do the same thing. But I’d be lying if I said you’re like everyone else. Because some people think of art when they eat food, and whether or not they should eat their edible treat.

We've all seen our fair share of food art, but there are some bakers, cooks, and artists that take things to the next level. One example of this is Nagatoya, a candy maker based in Japan who is known for their “Fly Me To The Moon” dessert.

It’s a block of jelly that displays a new scene on each slice as you cut from the front of the block to the back. From the first slice to the last, you’ll see that the bird gradually spreads its wings as it approaches the moon, and the sky gets darker. Not only is this food art beautiful, but it looks tasty as well

For all the foodies out there, this dessert’s top and bottom layers are made of red bean jelly, and the middle is made out of champagne jelly, which protects the lemon-flavored bird and moon. If your mouth isn’t watering by now, I don’t know what to tell you.

I didn’t know these types of art desserts existed. Ever since I became aware of how I could try these. I’m still wondering, but I’m sure in most major US cities (such as New York or Los Angeles), you can find something close to this. 

But if you want this particular dessert (straight from Japan), you can order it online. You can also place an order to have it delivered as a gift. Why not surprise your friends or family with this beautiful treat? The gift boxes are designed by award-winning artist Reika Masuda.

The downside is that you may not even want to eat this food art, considering how beautiful it is. Instead, you can stare at it... until it melts.
