These miniature, edible meals prepared in toy kitchens will blow your mind
Miniature food and the artists who create it have been pretty popular these past few years. I've enjoyed seeing adorable new polymer clay collections as they've popped up on the Internet. Now, thanks to a Japanese YouTube channel called Miniature Space, my mini-food-watching has entered a whole new world — one where the items are made with real ingredients instead of clay, and they can be eaten.

Videos of these edible mini-meals being prepared with toy supplies in doll-sized kitchens are incredibly popular, and there's a good variety of munchies — everything from coin-sized pancakes and omelets to curry to sashimi to stew cooked in a teeny tajine!
There are cakes, pies, and parfaits if you have room for dessert after supper (ha ha), and even coffee to chase it all down.
Baby veggies and substitutions like quail eggs seem to make this kind of mini-meal planning a snap. Let's check out a few dishes that caught my eye.

Artist AkameruKawaii in Denmark, who had already established herself as a professional in polymer clay, added a miniature edibles playlist to her YouTube channel and uploaded edible show episodes from 2013 to early 2015. She took on spaghetti Bolognese, tacos, Red Velvet cake, even an edible tiny Thanksgiving dinner for you holiday buffs.
I wouldn't mind trying her:
Bacon and egg
(Can you tell I love breakfast?)
I don't have a gentle enough hand to be successful at this delicate art, but I sure am having a blast watching the pros do it.
Gives new meaning to Easy Bake Oven, doesn't it? ;)
