For most of us, toast is a quick, cheap, and easy “meal,” often enjoyed with butter, jam, peanut butter, or some other type of spread. But Japanese designer Manami Sasaki has been spending her breakfast time creating absolute works of art on her toast, and they’re not just beautiful, but also delicious!

Sasaki takes her inspiration from Japanese traditions. For example, she uses a fork to rake lines into sour cream to make it look like powdered sand. All of her creations are edible — no “cheating” with non-edible paint or markers! — and the toppings go on before the bread is toasted. She often shares photos of the effects that the toasting process has on the ingredients, too!
