maneki neko monday: another delicious beckoning cake!

Here at MCL, Pixelcat and I just love kitty cakes. We’ve featured Maneki Neko treats in the past, and as an amateur cake decorator myself, I couldn’t resist sharing this one, too!

Chris over at Adventures in Cake Decorating won First Place in the Adult Beginner Sculpted Cakes division at That Takes the Cake in 2010 for her adorable Maneki Neko cake!

Her post is very detailed about her process, I think I can learn a thing or two from her! I leave you with Chris’s own final words from her Maneki Neko post:

If you see a cat beckon to you, follow him!

Now if only the cat were raising its paw in maneki neko fashion, my mind would be blown.

Ack, it’s been a while since I’ve done a Maneki Neko Monday! I found this photo on Tumblr and though I’m not a big tea drinker, I would absolutely love to have this set.

maneki neko monday

"Italian or Japanese Cat?" by into the deep of my soul

Maneki neko and daruma made from wood and painted, by Flickr user into the deep of my soul. The little orange cat is ceramic and, I’m assuming from the creator’s description, is an Italian-style kitty.

maneki neko monday: hipster cat

hipster maneki neko by pronouncedyou

Says artist pronouncedyou, “I wanted to draw another Maneki Neko but make it more contemporary, so here’s a mixture of cool, hipster stuff and awesome Japanese culture.

And the vinyl he’s holding? Yeah, it’s of a band you’ve probably never heard of.”

Haha! This makes me laugh. I love the modern-day twist, especially the plaid bib and Chucks.
