With temperatures dipping to below zero degrees Celsius, Kyoto experienced its coldest days yet this past weekend. And while it snows occasionally in Japan’s most beautiful of cities, rarely does it stick. Locals and visitors were in for a spectacular treat this weekend, as the low temperatures allowed for a heavier snowfall that blanketed the city’s world famous monuments.
Artist Holly Fox creates colorful confections that are a feast for the eyes (and stomach, of course). Using eccentric cookie cutters to her advantage, Fox has been illustrating her very own cookies for the past five years, and she recently started selling them on Etsy. Whether she’s baking soon-to-be rainbow ghosts, vibrant flamingos, or pastel ice cream, the cookie artist aims to embrace her love of custom colors. She’s even produced batches of cookies resembling an array of Pantone swatches!
According to her shop’s reviews, Fox’s designs aren’t only delightful–they’re also delicious! Her customers especially love the cookies’ soft texture paired with the fun, crisp icing illustrations. To get your very own picturesque treats, you can pay a visit to Fox’s Etsy store (but make sure to order at least 2 weeks in advance for an event).
