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.
Kawaii! Nothing brightens the day quite like a taste of My Neighbor Totoro in real life. Japanese Twitter user @bump_take has just shown the world how easily we can transform our kitties into our own personal Totoros. All it takes is a pair of scissors, a piece of paper, and a patient feline friend.
Kawaii! Japanese marshmallow specialty shop Yawahada has created something awesome for those of us who have been feeling a bit down that we haven’t quite figured out how to turn our own morning coffees into works of caffeinated art. Yawahada makes adorable kitty cat and kitty cat paw marshmallows that float in your hot beverage of choice, giving you the effect of 3D coffee art without all the effort and as a bonus marshmallow treat.
"Dubbed "Cat Cafe", each one is made by hand one at a time—a time-consuming process. The shop hit on the idea for this particular marshmallow after customers complained that another one of its cat-shaped marshmallows started sinking, head-first. How sad! Thus, the marshmallow wizards at Yawahada created a cat that poked its head out of your steamy drink.
Besides the marshmallow felines, there are also cat paws that come in different flavors, like “milk tea”, “cocoa”, and “green tea latte”, and that were originally designed for hot milk.”
It seems almost impossible to have a bad day if that day starts out with a cup of coffee that looks back up you with a sweet marshmallow face.
This incredibly awesome photo, featuring our Inflatable Unicorn Horn for Cats (Cat’s love it!), was taken by Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based artist Kate Anderson (also known as Kate Funk) for The World’s Most Super Amazing 100% Awesome Cat Calendar, which was recently funded by to an overwhelmingly successful Kickstarter project.
The photogenic feline start of this calendar is Kate’s six-year-old sidekick AC, whose name is short for “Annoying Customer”, which some of you may remember from a memorable scene in the 1994 movie Clerks.
“I had to stop calling him that, though, as I made a customer upset at a craft fair once,” Anderson said. “She asked what my cat’s name was, and, when I told her, she thought I was referring to her. He’s amazingly laid-back and very loving despite how grumpy he always appears to be.”
AC is veteran calendar model. He’s already been featured in five other themed calendars created by Kate. This year’s theme is “magical creatures”, so AC posed as the unicorn you see above, as well as a fairy, a wizard, and more.
“He doesn’t really have any issues with the costumes but doesn’t enjoy it when I try to make him sit where I want in the dioramas I create. But he still puts up with it and gives me about 5 minutes before he decides he’s finished and walks off the set.”
