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 mini piping bag made from parchment paper as her gear, she creates magical patterned themes on shoku-pan, a Japanese-style milk bread. The vibrant elements pop against a spread of homemade sour cream.
Each design may be time-consuming and fiddly; a few were made by putting individual sesame seeds in time with a set of tweezers. It is well worth it though, as Mori’s work has since become an online sensation. On Instagram, her 24k+ followers are treated to a feast of cute creations.
