Video game hero Kirby continues to ride his star of popularity. Not only does he have his own cafe but he has enjoyed collaborations with everything from face masks and plushies to jewelry.

With his jovial countenance and simple, rotund design, it's no wonder that he's also a favorite among culinary creatives who feature cute characters in their work.

Asami Kamioka 上岡麻美 (@asami_kamioka) is a culinary artist who creates cute confectionaries and produces adorable picture books using icing cookie characters, as well as recipe books. She's also an official ambassador for Sylvanian Families.

Her kawaii Kirby creation delighted many people on Twitter, eliciting comments such as:

  • "So kawaii! If this were served at Kirby Cafe, it would surely be the most popular item on the menu!"
  • "Kawaii! Mousse can be so three-dimensional? There's magic at work here..."
  • "The character creations you make are always so amazing that it's a shame to eat them (...)"

Of course, Kirby isn't the only popular character she has created in edible form. For example, she recently made these amazing cookies in the likeness of Anya Folger from Spy x Family:
