Creative food pair Caroline and her daughter Laura creatively bridge together traditional adoration for pets and Japanese dessert culture with this series of edible sleeping cat candies, that recreate the felines using sugary ingredients. The desserts capture the calming nature of the furry animals as well as the artistry behind bonbon making.

The dessert feature a series of sleeping kittens ranging in breed coiled up around a traditional Kotatsu warming table. The entire sweet is made using edible ingredients created with colored icing and paint to create adorable cat creatures and Japanese decor pieces. The sweets are rendered in such detail that the scene looks more like a work of art rather than a dessert item.
