“My fans make fun of me – it’s really cool. They have all these gifs of me making an idiot of myself or tripping and falling on stage. They bring humour back into it for me… I love them. They are cool and smart and hilarious and focused on the right things. I want to make the most of this cultural relevance or success or whatever you want to call it, because it’s not going to last. I have to be as good a person [as I can] while my name matters to them.”
The first time the Department of Impossible Cuteness encountered the kawaii creations of a Japanese food and craft blogger named Caroline, she’d made an adorable batch of cat-shaped éclairs. Now she’s celebrating summer with an adorable clowder of wide-eyed Summer Cat (and kitten) Cakes peering into and pawing at a gelatin block pool full of colorful candy fish. One of the kitties might’ve already eaten a fish or two, because it’s fast asleep while everyone else appears to be moments away from pouncing on the pool.
