I love Totoro! If you have never seen the film, My Neighbor Totoro, I hope you have a chance to soon. It’s about two little girls who move to the country with their dad so they can be closer to their mom who is recovering at a nearby hospital. They discover magical creatures in their backyard forest and go on several adventures. It’s fluffy and fun, perfect if you’re feeling nostalgic about childhood. Every October I do an informal Totoro Week where I dress up food as Totoro because in another life I would totally be a kyaraben maker. I love kawaii things and Totoro is one of the most kawaii of all. Plus, he is awesome to make into food. Here’s a little roundup of all the Totoro food I’ve made the past 5 years. I’ve got a couple of things up my sleeve for this year, so keep your eyes peeled!
