Nerds in the kitchen alert: Totoro toaster pastries


Guaranteed not to bite back

Totoro pastries: the Ghibli nerd's way of preparing food that makes everyone happy before they even take a bite. In fact, they might not want to take a bite at all because of how dang cute these things come out. But that'd be a terrible waste of delicious snacks.

Check out the video above for a super easy-to-follow tutorial for making the pastries from scratch (or with a few shortcuts) and then decorating them. When you're finished, consider checking out other videos on that channel, and learn to make other nerdy goodies like a Hello Kitty brownie parfait, some Pokémon X/Y macaroons, and these Rilakkuma tarts.

Enjoy! And be sure to share pictures in the cblogs if you ever make any treats like these or others I've featured in the past so we can drool.
