Happy New Year Pear

image1“Hi there, I was cutting a pear for breakfast when I saw this face on a slice,” says Carrie M. “A friend said I should send this your way, so I am! I posted it on FB saying it was a perfect (pear-fect?) moment reflecting on 2015 and looking ahead to the New Year. 😊”

Santa Sushi? Well, Of Course It Is

File this one under QTE Food/The Big J. Anyway, Japan has been keeping a low profile on the Cute Edibles front since Halloween- I don’t think Thanksgiving is big over there- but they come roaring back for Christmas with, of all things, Santa Sushi.

Finish things up with some strawberries and whipped cream.

Cookie Bears. Hugging Nuts.

[*Note: It’s National Cookie Day! Time for an Encore. -Ed.]

(Let’s get this outta the way right up front- of COURSE they’re from The Big J. Now, onto more deets, as covered in Bored Panda.)

Whip up a bunch of dough, shape ’em into bears, and- the tricky part- get ’em to HOLD A NUT.

These were created by a Japanese cook named Maa Tamagosan. Her recipe is here.

Mmmmm, Pancakes!

File this one under QTE Food For A Great Cause, People. Brady Phelps is a chef with a plan.

image1He has started a campaign for charity: water where they give 100% of all donations to clean water projects around the world (primarily Africa). He says, “If anyone makes a $100 donation, I’ll make and send a timelapse video of whatever pancake design they want. Here’s the link to donate. I’ve raised over $35,000 just by making pancakes! One reason I chose charity:water is, they have private donors that cover all of their operating costs so that 100% of all public donations go directly to clean water projects. Water changes everything.”

“Gee, That’s Kind Of Strange.”

Marie Davidek of Mount Morris Township in Michigan, found a tomato that’s better suited for the bathtub than the salad bowl! (Looks oddly familiar…hmmmm….)

Who Wants Some Frog Pancakes?

It’s breakfast time after all, and- sorry, what? No, they’re not MADE OF Froggers! [Say like Homer Simpson: D’OH!] They LOOK like Froggers…and other Amphibians! Take a peek, and then break out the Mrs. Butterworth’s!

[*Note: Viral video star and pancake connoisseur Saipancakes just released this time-lapse video of his creation of four Amphibians exhibit-inspired pancakes for Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium. -Ed.]

Ya Never Know Where The QTE Will Strike

You know, like in a bag of crackers at lunch, right? Lori B. says, “My ex-husband (we’re friends) Tom texted me yesterday from his office to share a picture of a “Cute Cracker.” As you can see, I responded enthusiastically. Tom actually did save it. He brought it home and gave it to me. Look at that shy little smile! Cute!”

Ooooh, How I Loff This Red Thing!

IMG_1656Rachel W. says, “When I showed my coworker this picture, he said I had to send it over to your site. Our rescue dog Peanut has been told so many times he’s our baby that he’s starting to believe it. You can see more of his shenanigans on Instagram.

Gudetama: The Laziest Egg In Japan Hong Kong

042815-fb-gudetamaBelieve me when I say it took awhile to get this story straight. So..Gudetama is a…Sanrio (aha!) character. And let’s just quote RN24 for the deets:

“Sanrio’s egg-turned-mascot character gets its name from a combination of the words ‘gude'(pronouced goo-deh), which is a Japanese onomatopoeia for describing something or someone with no energy or strength, and ‘tama’ from the word tamago, which means egg in Japanese. And sure enough, Gudetama is an egg that, well..seems to lack the energy to do anything active at all.”
