Australian pastry chef and artist Erina Akiyama has a knack for converting cartoon characters into edibles in the form of decorated donuts. The designs are made from icing and decorations that offer a realistic edible interpretation of popular anime characters and animals such as Hello Kitty and Totoro.

The desserts by Akiyama are detailed and whimsical capturing the bright eyes, bold colors and fur textures found in many of the classic anime characters. Each donut is made and glazed by hand and features natural ingredients to create edible color like, for example, black sesame. The donuts featured layered icing and fondant to create a minimalist interpretation of the beloved cartoon personalities.

Edible desserts decorated as popular characters give consumers another short-lived and non-committal way to express their interest in the pop culture.
