Have you heard of Popin’ Cookin’? It’s the latest madness from Japan – DIY candy kits to make tiny food that you can actually eat! The mind boggles.
How they taste I do not really want to know, but if you are braver than me, From Japan With Love have a few ranges available including cupcakes, donuts and bento boxes. There’s also some videos on YouTube.
What do you reckon – cute or crazy?
Updated 2020: This shop is now closed – find DIY candy kits at The Best Kawaii Shops Worldwide instead.
Marceline is the co-founder and editor of Super Cute Kawaii and the author of The Super Cute Book of Kawaii. She lives by the seaside in Scotland in a flat full of kawaii, creating cute character goods as Asking For Trouble, working on endless craft projects and playing Nintendo.

So, in other words, it’s like doll food but for actual people?

Poppin cookin is great fun to make but it like eating coloured sugar paste with dry wafers.My little boy thought it was rather tasty though. Got mine from CyberCandy a couple of years ago.
