Cats have ruled the internet for as long as youth of the digital age can remember. But in 2015, it appears that there's a new sheriff in town. That's Kawaii (Japanese for ‘cute’), which has given birth to viral video content consisting of tiny cooking challenges performed on scaled down doll's house-style crockery sets and utensils via candle light.
Once the miniature culinary masterpiece has been created, the food is often served to food critics in the form of small, cuddly creatures such as hamsters or hedgehogs - much to the delight of millions of fans on Youtube. Viewers find the concept both bonkers and strangely fascinating in equal measure.
The combination of cooking miniature portions and cute little animals is what the Internet was made for. The idea of a hamster eating tiny burritos that have been meticulously prepared by a steady hand in a doll's house kitchen to offer the perfect animal dining experience might be an odd one - but it has captured the world’s attention.
With some of the videos attracting nearly 10 million views, it would appear that many big entertainment and food brands have missed a great opportunity here. But if watching Masterchef has taught viewers anything, it’s that cooking doesn't get much tougher than this.
