The Calcifer cookie isn’t the only recent example of Studio Ghibli edible fan art. Earlier this year, another anime fan used bacon and toast to bring the mischievous spirit to life. According to the talented cook, they “gave him enough eggshells to tame him” to keep everything from burning. Moreover, Studio Ghibli fans not only showed their love and passion for Howl’s Howl’s Moving Castle through food-based artwork. Recently, one brought Howl to life with an incredible cosplay of the wizard’s monstrous bird form and another used beloved characters from the movie to recreate Gustav Klimt’s painting, “The Kiss.”
