Japans’s popular cat-shaped cake gets miniature feline bites with 'Chibineko Cheesecake'

By grape Japan

Heart Bread Antique Bakery's cat-shaped Neko Neko Shokupan (neko being the word for “cat” in Japanese, and shokupan being the word for fluffy, white bread) has become a hit in Japan, with branches opening up in Tokyo and Kyoto, and even watermelon cat bread being served up.

Recently, the bakery opened up a new sister shop that specializes in "Neko Neko Cheesecake" that makes use of "king of cheeses" Brie de Meaux and a home-made sweet and sour apricot jam for a feline-shaped cheesecake. The popular cheesecake will be a miniature kitty companion with bite-sized cheesecakes called the "Chibineko Cheesecake."


The chibi version of the cat-shaped cake comes in strawberry, blueberry, mango, and kiwi jam flavors, along with the usual Brie de Meaux cheese baked into each tiny cake.


The Chibineko Cheesecakes are available at "Nekoneko Cheesecake", "Tokyo Nekoneko", "Kyoto Nekoneko", and "Nekoneko Factory" stores nationwide, priced at 1,100 yen for a pack of four.
