Japan Perfects the Art of Anime Cakes

The triumphant return of Caketaku! As sister site Kotaku Japan pointed out, there is a pastry shop in Gunma Prefecture called Torte that excels in creating anime, manga, and video game themed cakes.

And it's not only your favorite character or superhero that Torte can draw on your cake, but your own face, too! That's right, Torte does anime-style portraits, too. Make that, anime-style cake portraits.

Strawberry cream cakes with custom character drawings start at ¥3,800 (US$48) and max out at ¥5,800 ($73) for 21-inch cakes. Vanilla and chocolate chiffon custom cakes cost between ¥4,000 ($51) and ¥4,700 ($60).

But who could eat such artistry? Who?
