Izuyo’s bread art


Izuyo, who goes by @izuyo0719 on Instagram, shares an impressive number of creative bread art on her account. Some even depict iconic anime characters such as Totoro, Pikachu, and Anpanman.

One of her creations that caught our attention was the approximately 26cm-tall loaf of bread decorated to look like Totoro. But that’s not all it reveals a Totoro with a cheeky grin on the inside when sliced open.

Some of her other creations also contain little surprises, such as the loaf of bread fashioned into a Poké Ball with a Pikachu in it, and a loaf of watermelon-shaped bread that reveals Anpanman when sliced open.

An Anpanman made out of bread is particularly apt as he is an anime character whose head is made out of actual bread. We wonder if the bread tastes like red bean – that would be the cherry on top.
