Oh Japan, you’ve done it once again - gone and created something outrageously cute and edible. In celebration of the Hotel New Hankyu Osaka’s 50th anniversary, the hotel bakery is making adorable Kuro Neko No Te (Black Cat Paw) sandwich pastries that look just like kawaii kitty paws.
The paw-shaped cakes are made of chocolate infused dacquoise dough with a layer of chocolate rice cream between them. The finishing touch is a daub of chocolate on each paw pad. They’re offered in milk chocolate and white chocolate flavors.
Kuro Neko No Te are on sale for the Valentine’s Day and White Day seasons at Blue Jean, a cafe/bakery found on the first floor basement of the Hotel New Hankyu Osaka where they sell for 230 yen (US$2.25) each.
The pastry chefs have done such a great job making these treats look like cat paws that we wouldn’t be surprised if they twitched when placed near a shoelace or piece of string.
November has ended, so let’s all gather round and celebrate the hirsute glory that was Movember 2013 by marveling at the face, neck, and chest of Jonathan Burnside. For his 4th year as a Movember participant, Jonathan grew a splendid handlebar mustache that he eventually connected with his beard and chest hair in order to create the unmistakable shape of a playful cat.
‘I just did a handlebar moustache and then cut half of it off,’ he explained. ‘I made a template to get the basic shape. Then I shaved negative space lines for the details, which did not show up on camera. Then my wife did an outline in eye liner, which also did not show up on camera. Then I just went ahead and outlined it in Sharpie.’
We love how the Einstein tattoo on Jonathan’s left arm appears to be marveling at the fuzzy feline right along with us.
It was one of 5 cat-themed elements of an art installation that the studio assembled in 2010. The 3.5-meter long cat fills an apartment master bedroom. Visitors to the exhibit could sit on it for what Unfold calls “sweet revenge.”
It may be time to consider replacing the conference table here at Geyser of Awesome headquarters. Although there would be a slight risk of dozing off for anyone who happened to sit in a sunny spot, this awesome lounging kitty looks like an amazing place to hold our creativity meetings.
The Cat Video Clapperboard makes your cat feel like a star! You need to take the YouTube and Facebook videos of your cat to the next level. To get that standard of quality will require multiple takes, which means you’ll want this clapperboard. This tiny 4” x 3-1/2” wood clapperboard is the perfect thing to mark the takes of your kitty doing adorable things.
We can’t celebrate the return of Movember without mentioning Hamilton the Hipster Cat and his awesome white mustache (previously featured here). But instead of sharing a photo of Hamilton himself, we wanted to share this extraordinary image of Jeff dressed up as Hamilton during the week of staff costumes leading up to Halloween at the Archie McPhee store. The resemblance is truly uncanny.
