The Japanese take cute to a completely different level. Case in point: these tiny edible kitties, which are both adorably cute and tasty too. Caroline, a Japanese mom, made these for Cat’s Day (also known as Neko no Hi), which was on February 22. The little kitties are made from nerikiri, a sweet white-bean paste that’s mixed with a type of rice that’s similar in texture to mochi. Caroline also made all of the little accessories herself too.
How do you even bring yourself to eat these? I have enough guilt over chocolate bunnies.
“We live in a shockingly beautiful world. We are walking through the living kingdom of heaven every day; the colours, the sound, the love of others, the potential to create, the plants, wildlife, nature, music, all sensations and life…but if we refuse to see colour and beauty we may as well be in Hell. Maybe an animated band was the best way of announcing this.”
I keep thinking this is just a bad nightmare but then I wake up and see all the bags of laundry and all the crates of stuff and the empty shelves and I’m like “nope this bullshit is still happening”
