Instagram is full of creative people making amazing things and I am especially fond of those that make cute treats that look like kawaii characters. Here are a few of my favourite cute food creators that will definitely make you hit that follow button!
mellyeatsworld takes sweet treats and turns them into the most adorable creations. Choux buns become Grogu, macarons become otters, steamed buns become Baymax and pineapple cakes become Totoro. Even tapioca bubble tea balls are turned into little Mickey Mouse designs.
The brightly coloured designs of luxeandthelady are a feast for the eyes. My favourites are probably her bubble cakes that are decorated with characters’ faces and rainbow sprinkles or her adorable character ice cream cones.
As well as tutorials on how to make the perfect macaron, phay_shing creates sweet treats with the most incredible designs. Her Pikachu dressed as Hello Kitty (and vice versa) is a sure favourite, but I’m always amazed at her macaron ferris wheel designs.
If you’re a fan of Miffy, then you need to take a look at ske.f’s creations. She has Miffy’s little face on every kind of treat imaginable, from little cookies and macarons to parfait and tarts.
I’m obsessed with constellationinspiration’s shaker cookies – layered cookies shaped like your favourite characters, with little clear sugar windows filled with rainbow sprinkles. They are so creative and I love to see which characters she chooses to include in her designs (the rocket filled with aliens from Toy Story might be a favourite along with Totoro).
sugardevotion makes the most kawaii of macarons, often themed to holidays or special occasions. The Monsters Inc. pumpkin designs from last Halloween were so adorable.
xaya106x creates both sweet and savoury character based works of art. From Kirby tiramisu to No Face madeleines, her dishes are always inventive and diverse.
Emma is an English teacher who travels a lot, usually splitting her time between the UK and Peru. Adventuring around the world is her passion, with Japan being one of her favourite destinations. She loves baking, photography, sweet treats, and all things Disney. If Emma was a Pokémon, she’d definitely be a Pikachu.
