Delectable Doughnuts That Are Almost Too Cute to Eat… Almost

Doughnuts are more than just a tasty treat—they’re a blank slate for amazing food art. Australian baker Vickie Liu peppers her Instagram account with adorable iterations of the beloved pastry, crafting smiling creatures with colorful icing and playful additions like ears and horns. Using ingredients such as matcha powder and chocolate for pigment, she sculpts cats, pandas, and faithfully recreates beloved cartoon characters. Sprinkles, like spectacular jewels, are often well-placed accents.

Liu calls herself a “professional eater,” meaning that she actually consumes her mouthwatering creations. We can’t say we blame her—their charming faces might make you pause for a second… and then enjoy.

Liu also decorates doughnuts with beautiful surface designs:
