Anna the Red, self-described as bento and plush designer, current whereabouts unknown but went on to work for gaming company The Behemoth, posted instructions on how to make these adorable edible Mario mushrooms for Valentine’s Day back in 2009.

While the page that hosted the recipe is now only on Wayback, the image gallery that it drew from is still alive on Flickr. (Remember Flickr?)

So go look! Look and cook!

Music From Kirby Cafe

In the past for limited times Nintendo has authorized the setting up of Kirby Cafes, charming little representations of the affable pink blob’s world and its inhabitants. Two of them are currently open, in Tokyo and Hakata, Japan. These have really gone the extra mile to create an atmosphere of Kirbiness, from their menus to having large plush Waddle Dees to set into a chair opposite yours if you should come to one alone.

I like the use of the older style of Kirby face on this hamburger.

The embedded video is over an hour and a half of background music from these cafes. It appears to be a rip of a pair of official CDs. SiliconEra reports on some current dishes being served there as tie-ins to the new 3D Kirby game for Switch, Kirby and the Forgotten Land. The cafes have an official website and Twitter feed.

“Here are your Kirburgers, and your side orders of Kirbyfries.”
