It’s the cutest culinary trend ever: videos of tiny meals are exploding online.

Old collectible miniature stoves, pots, pans and other cooking utensils, that wouldn’t be out of place in a Victorian dollhouse, are used to create mini edible cuisine, in an art form known as kawaii cooking. (Kawaii is the Japanese word for cute.)

The recipes use real-life ingredients and are cooked over a small candle or flame so you can actually eat them.

The craze started in Japan but has caught on worldwide, with thousands of followers posting videos of their creations and a host of YouTube channels dedicated to the pastime.

It won’t fill you up, but it sure is satisfying to watch.
