This adorably crafted chigiri-pan breads are baked and decorated to resemble popular fictional characters. Japan-based artist and baker Umi creates these unique breads as an artistic expression as well as to pay tribute to some beloved iconic characters.

The breads range from Winnie the Pooh to characters from Snoopy. Each bread becomes an edible 3D work of art that perfectly portrays characters from pop culture. In order to obtain the correct coloring this artist uses "cocoa, green tea powder and sweet potato powder to color the breads and icing is used to create details like eyes and noses."

One of the most unique chigiri-pan breads comes in the form a bunt cake style. The bread was then sectioned into seven portions and each portion was given the identity of one of the seven dwarfs form Snow White. More of Umi's creations can be seen across social media platforms such as Instagram.
