Mews and Nips: These Cat Shaped Desserts Are Too Cute To Eat


The adorable desserts in the photo above are éclairs, created by a web designer named Laura, who publishes the blog Caroline & Laura’s Tea Break. To make these sweet little dessert kitties, Laura combines gyūhi (a softer version of mochi rice cake) with sweetened white bean paste to create a variety of wagashi (a type of Japanese confection.) After tinting the resulting dough, she sculpts and shapes them into charming cat shapes. For more photos of Laura’s amazing creations, visit Mother Nature Network.

    First, Ruby is too precious!! She was so engrossed! And…OMG I couldn’t eat those desserts either! They are too cute to eat!

    I notice that Ruby has a little kink in her tail. Cricket has that too. I always thought that her tail was broken before I got her. What do you think Ingrid? Did Ruby get a broken tail or do some torties just have kinks?
    ps. I’m a little in love with Ruby. If you ever decide to kick her out of the house, please give her my address.

      She actually doesn’t have a kink in her tail, Patty. I think it’s just the way she holds it in this video. And she says she’s flattered 🙂

    Whereas, I like ‘ eclairs ‘ as well as the next man (Napoleons are better)- I’d rather make them out of clay, use them on the Christmas tree, e.g.
    Could you really eat them, even if they’re supposed to be?

      There’s no way I could eat any of these desserts, Deb!

    I couldn’t eat those cut kitties. I have enough trouble eating a chocolate bunny at Easter.
