This is bobi’s first attempt at cute cooking! But she has made some amazing Totoro related stuff before:

The cupcakes where inspired by our love of Totoro and all things Studio Ghibli!

It was a fairly standard cupcake recipe, and the decorations were made from a template Bobi drew in Photoshop, printed out and then cut out in fondant icing (a small amount of black food coloring was added to to make gray) with a scalpel, and then the edges were smoothed by hand to give a nice rounded edge. The different layers were stuck together using a thick icing glue. The eyeballs were made by rolling a tiny ball, the pupils, nose and chest patterns were painted on in black food coloring with a toothpick!
