Although the weather in Calgary doesn't exactly scream "spring" quite yet, that doesn't mean we can't start celebrating our favourite season with a sweet treat here and there!

If you haven't yet heard of Uzu Taiyaki, you are definitely missing out. Taiyaki is one of the latest hipster food trends, and is best described as a sweet, super cute, fish-shaped cake, filled with some sort of custard!

If the cake itself doesn't already have you drooling, just imagine it stuffed full of soft-serve and an abundance of other toppings!

Soft-serve flavours include Matcha, Vanilla, Ube, and Pan Dan, and they've got some seriously adorable toppings, including sprinkles, toasted coconut, pocky and teddy grahams!

Not only will your snack be delicious, but it will also be picture perfect, and bound to make all of your IG followers jealous.

If the Taiyaki cakes don't sound like your cup of tea, you can always try out a regular or matcha flavoured cone, both of which are equally delicious and pretty!
