Mochi is a traditional Japanese dessert that is a cross between ice cream and cake, as it is based on a viscous and dense rice dough with a delicate whipped cream inside with various fillings. This dessert is usually stored frozen, but it should be allowed to warm up to room temperature before serving, so it will be very tasty.
