Sure, you can do a pretty good doodle of Gudetama, but can you make Gudetama gyoza?

@ilisia_liu can. She’s a cook from Taiwan who has been in the spotlight recently for her amazing food art. It’s so amazing that it’s got her almost 1.5 million followers on Instagram and we wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve already heard of her.

Her specialty lies in creating representations of characters entirely out of food and she has flawless models of Winnie the Pooh, Buzz Lightyear and Woody from Toy Story, and more.

▼ Winnie the Pooh looks even better as a burger.

What we find irresistible, though, is her Japanese character recipes. She recreates some of our favorite anime and Sanrio characters.

▼ Look at how perfect these Pom Pom Purins are!

@ilisialiu isn’t just a genius; she’s also kind enough to share some tips and details with us. In each Instagram post’s caption, she describes what foods are used and how to replicate the recipe on our own.

▼ The skins for these Gudetama gyoza were made yellow by boiling them in water seasoned with turmeric.

▼ We love these Sailor Moon rice balls! there’s even a tiny Luna one.

#代替月亮懲罰你 🌙🌟 雖然考卷還沒發完,但昨天恩恩說已經知道粗心錯了幾題,希望媽媽不要生氣。其實孩子的個性和能力阿母大概都知道,只要考前有用心負責完成複習進度,媽媽都不會太苛責的,最重要的是學習的態度。雖然嘴巴說沒關係,心裡還是會小小鬱悶,總是在安親和不安親之間掙扎著😔 剛才故意做了美少女戰士扁冬給他送去,不曉得恩恩打開時是什麼反應😜 ●香鬆&蛋皮飯糰 ●唐揚雞塊、糖心蛋 ●高湯燙青花菜、炒洋蔥紅蘿蔔絲🥕 ●蝶豆花醋醃白蘿蔔 #美少女戰士 #美少女戦士セーラームーン #lunchbox #cutefood #kawaiifood #bento #foodforkids #homecook #愛上早餐 #characterfood #卡通便當 #營養午餐 #愛心便當 #少女系

午安❤又到了星期四愛心便當分享日~ 新學期的第一個便當分享,一定要先給大家啾一個(´ε` )♡,謝謝你們一直都在🤗 最近菜價貴33,媽媽們買菜時一定跟我一樣猶豫好久才拿起來放進菜籃吧😅 今天幫恩恩準備了他愛吃的醬烤雞翅和洋蔥炒蛋,好期待他打開便當時開心的模樣 ! 有媽媽問了要怎麼固定,便當才不會移位呢?其實很簡單,就是要裝滿 ! 有小空隙的地方善用毛豆仁、玉米粒、小蕃茄等食材填補滿,又能增加點繽紛色彩,非常好用呢👍 #愛心便當 #營養午餐 #哆啦a夢 #小叮噹 #doraemon #cutefood #kawaiifood #bento #lunchbox #foodforkids #homecook #yammy #啾咪 #lunchtime

While ilisa liu’s Instagram posts aren’t published in English, online translation machines can help you get the gist of it. At least the cuteness of her recipes needs no translation!
