Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day—no one more so than Japanese food artist Eiko Mori, who uses toast as her canvas.
Mori began making toast art just earlier this year, and has since fallen in love with the process. Using a toothpick, a spoon, and a miniature piping bag made from parchment paper as her tools, she creates charming patterned motifs on shoku-pan, a Japanese-style milk bread. Her patterned designs include fruit, sushi, and even tennis rackets made from Japanese ingredients such as black sesame and mango paste. The vibrant elements pop against a spread of homemade sour cream.
Each design can be time consuming and fiddly; some were made by placing individual sesame seeds one at a time with a pair of tweezers. It’s definitely worth it though, as Mori’s work has since become an internet sensation. On Instagram, her 17,000+ followers are treated to a feast of adorable creations.
