Japanese Mom Specializes in Deliciously Cute Fried Egg Art

A Japanese mother-of-three who took up food art as a way to entertain her daughters struck gold on Instagram after specializing in cute fried egg artworks.

Etoni Mama is often described as a master of kyaraben (or Charaben), the Japanese art of arranging various foods as elaborate, eye-catching designs, but it was her fried egg ideas that really helped her made a name for herself on popular social networks like Instagram and Twitter. Using fried eggs as the main element of her artistic kyaraben pieces, and various other edible ingredients as accessories, the Japanese mom creates all kinds of edible renditions of popular cartoon characters, iconic scenes and cute animals.

The Tokyo-based food artist was reportedly encouraged by a coworker to share the beautiful and complex kyaraben artworks she created for her three daughters online, and it proved to be a really good advice, as she now has over 141,000 loyal fans on Instagram alone.

Etoni Mama is an expert at making an otherwise plain-looking meal like fried eggs look like an incredibly detailed work of art, simply by perfectly placing bits of nori seaweed, colorful vegetables, pieces of sausages or sauces. Her beautiful designs really make you see fried eggs through a whole different lens.

While Etoni Mama originally made a name for herself as a fried egg kyaraben master, her Instagram page is full of different edible masterpieces  that don’t even include eggs, so if you’re into cute food art, it’s definitely worth checking out.
