Instagram artist turns Pokémon into confectionary masterpieces | Nintendo Wire

One of my favorite things about Pokémon is that the designs of most creatures translate really well into fun, colorful, and playful mediums. We see things like t-shirts and enamel pins and plushes and crochet works; Etsy is filled to the absolute brim with fun homemade Pokémon designs and none of it ever really seems out of place. For me, it’s always really fun to see how creative people are able to get with this particular franchise’s designs.

This theory applies particularly well to food, only being further proven by my latest obsession: an Instagram account by the name of @miscellaneousmao. The artist that runs the account calls themself an “amateur baker,” but I might have to argue otherwise, because all their creations (but particularly their Pokémon ones) are incredible.

 

 
Often going with different truffle recipes, the artist creates sweet treats that resemble all different kinds of Pokémon, often with one or two of the respective Pokémon’s Shiny form making an appearance as well. Their latest creation, Magikarp “sushi” truffles, might actually be one of my favorites of theirs, but they’ve tackled plenty of other miscellaneous Pokémon as well, ranging from Pikachu and Mankey to Lotad, Clamperl, and Luvdisc. They even did a recipe that made Slowpoke Tail cake pops.

 

 
If you’re looking for a smile or some inspiration to make something sweet, I’d highly recommend checking out the account — all their stuff is super fun and I’m high-key extremely impressed by the level of attention, detail, and accuracy that all their creations have.

Now, if they’d just release the recipes…
