Japanese food and craft blogger Caroline has just created the most adorable edibles in the history of ever: Tiny Kawaii Kittens Pawing At Candy Koi Fish!

The overwhelming cuteness of these little cat cakes are magnified as you discover each cat’s personality while trying to “rescue” the fish trapped in gelatin. Either the orange and white kitten had his fill or he just gave up and decided to nap.

I’m overwhelmed with adorable overload.

Go on without me and check out more photos after the break.

Vermeer probably never thought that one day people would be eating representations of his masterpiece “Girl With a Pearl Earring”, but that’s exactly what’s happening at L.A.-based Bohnhoff & Kent, where food artists used the painting as the inspiration for one of their signature cake-filled chocolate “gourmet stuffed candy bars”.

As you’ll see by the creative process after the jump, the completely edible creation looks delicious and far too beautiful to eat – meaning your stomach and eyes will be fighting each other as you watch.

Well, this Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask Cake is definitely one of the most unique nerdy cakes we’ve ever seen.

Crafted by Las tartas del cachorro for the Game On Cake Collaboration, you can tell that a lot of thought went into the design. I love how it looks like Link’s popping out of the TV, ready to take on Skull Kid. And that tiny N64? Please. I’m sold. I need this cake, ASAP.

transforming cake

In another parenting win, Russell Munro built this transforming Optimus Prime cake for his son’s 6th birthday party. Do you see the overwhelming joy on his little face? I felt the same way watching the video the first time.

The transforming frame was 3D printed and then the cake and frosting were added to conceal the structure and motors.

Click below to watch the awesome robot-in-disguise-as-cake video and cheer along. There’s even a video of the mechanical structure being assembled.

Cut-Cake

Inspired by a question posed by his wife, expert woodworker and engineer Matthias Wandel created a clever cake knife to cut hexagonal shapes.

“This project started when Rachel said “Now I have to cut the cake into squares or triangles”. My immediate thought was “why not cut it into circles, or hexagons?”. This got me thinking about a good method of cutting a cake into a hexagon honeycomb pattern.

The easiest I figured, was to make a knife that snakes through the honeycomb pattern …Testing the knife by pressing it down on some pine. I had actually shaped the handle to have a slight curve on the bottom of it so that the knife can be rocked back and forth a bit for cases where it needs to slice through some tough cake or pizza bottom. It left a nice indentation in the pine. so I’m confident that it can slice any cake.”

Check out more photos and a video of the hexagon cake knife after the break.

As we’ve noted with other Harry Potter-themed cakes recently, Birthday Mischief Managed is a massive collaboration of talented bakers and food artists who came together in July to whip up cakes in honor of J.K. Rowling’s 50th Birthday. Top Tier Cakes made the Hogwarts library cake pictured here, and I have to say that it is spectacular. I want to shrink myself down and curl up with a book inside it. Read it then eat it.

If this cake doesn’t make you want to run off and immediately watch Big Hero 6, then you’re probably a robot (and not a friendly one like Baymax). This cake, made by I Love Cakes By Sheila, features a whole bunch of lovely details, including a cake topper that depicts Baymax hugging it out with Hiro Hamada.

This wonderful mashup cake by Little Cherry Cake Company has Mario characters standing in for everyone in The Nightmare Before Christmas. There’s Jack and Sally as Mario and Peach, Oogie Boogie as Yoshi, Lock Shock and Barrel as Shy Guys, Boo Ghosts, Zero, Dry Bones, Yoshi eggs and Tim Burton style-Piranha plants all beautifully rendered. It’s a cake made in gamer heaven, or is that gamer Halloween?
