These Japanese Animal donuts are sugary sweet. They are the creation of a woman named Ikumi Nakao, who developed them while working at a bakery in Kansai called Floresta.
When Ikumi posted pictures of her creations on Twitter they soon went viral. She decided to launch her own shop, called Ikumimama. The earliest donuts where shaped like a cat, which is still the most popular version and now there are over 35 different donuts to choose from. During special occasions the shop will sell limited edition donuts. You can also buy a special animal donut cake for an anniversary!
The donuts are made with fresh ingredients and a special fry method so that they’ll stay crispy for a while, even if you buy them frozen. Because their faces are handmade with chocolate, all expressions are slightly different 🙂
Cute cats and Gloomy Bear donuts fresh from the oven, I love that strawberry touch:
