Put Studio Ghibli In Your Mouth With Heartache Cakes

Never have the films of Studio Ghibli looked more sweet than when UK bakery Heartache Cakes got its hands on them. When Geeks Wed has a look at some of their non-Ghibli cakes (that Skeksis), or you can scan through the images on their Facebook page for the rest of them. A drool bucket may come in handy.

We previously showed you avant-garde fashion looks inspired by our favorite Disney characters.

Gorgeous Clip From Miyazaki’sThe Wind Rises [Video]

To know Studio Ghibli films is to love Studio Ghibli films, and it is with a heavy heart that most fans are bidding farewell to Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki. His final film with the studio, The Wind Rises, is about Jiro Horikoshi, an airplane designer. The film will debut throughout the U.S. in February, and if this clip is any indication, it will be yet another gorgeous Miyazaki film.

Concept Art From the Miyazaki Pippi Longstocking Movie That Could Have Been

Pippi Longstocking, that freckle-faced redhead girl you oughta know, is very close to my heart. I dressed up as her one year for Halloween. Pipe cleaners in my pigtails. That costume was rad (aren’t I adorable?). Anyway, all this is to say that my hair ears perked up when I read about how Hayao Miyazaki wanted to make a Pippi movie back in 1971. Only he didn’t get to, because creator Astrid Lindgren was all “Thanks, but no thanks.”

The Miyazaki and Studio GHBLI Livejournal has a whole slew of concept art for the might-have-been film. Look and be sad.
