Dessert is my favourite thing to eat at the best of times, but when it’s also themed around a kawaii character it’s even better. However, sometimes I’m not sure if they’re just too cute to eat!
Fudge is the perfect colour for making something Rilakkuma themed and Kawaii Sweet World makes hers using Speculoos spread, which I can imagine would be ridiculously delicious.
Ever wanted to try your hand at making Japan’s famous melon pan? Why not make it look like Pompompurin while you’re at it. This recipe from Sanrio is so cute.
Zoe’s Fancy Cakes uses fondant icing to create these Pusheen cupcake toppers that sit on top of your buttercream icing like a little tea cosy.
Little Miss Bento has a collection of character themed steam cakes but I love these Totoro ones. You can even make little soot sprites to go with him too.
I wasn’t very familiar with snow skin mooncakes, but they’re actually a simpler (and lighter) version of the original traditional mooncake using a mochi-like skin. Clara Kitchen 21 makes hers as Sumikko Gurashi characters and they are just so beautiful. Maybe save these to make for the mid-autumn festival in September.
These Winnie the Pooh ice creams from Luxe and the Lady are adorable and vegan. The tropical flavours of coconut and mango are perfect for summer too.
