The newest food decorating trend to come out of Japan since latte art is, surprisingly, toast art. But this isn’t just any plain old toast with butter and maybe a swirl of jam that vaguely resembles a smiley face (but I still appreciate all those years of happy toast, mom!). No, the toast decorations created by Twitter user ginkei_18 are embellished with popular anime characters from Free!, Uta no Prince-sama, Gin Tama and Attack on Titan. Even if you don’t recognize any of the characters, ginkei_18’s ability to skillfully draw directly onto a piece of bread is amazing.
First up, characters from Free!, an anime television series that follows the members of a high school swimming club:
Next we have the boys of Uta no Prince-sama, an anime and mange series geared towards the ladies:
Here’s one from Gin Tama, a manga set in the alien-conquered Edo Period:
Here we have Levi from Attack on Titan, a manga about the battle between humans and gigantic humanoid creatures:
The beautiful artwork of ginkei_18 can also be found on cookies:

▼ Sweetened Gin Tama
When being presented with toast art, you’ll surely run into the same problems that come with latte art. Although both are equally difficult to destroy/consume, at least your toast will still taste decent even if it takes too long to decorate and lands up getting cold.
