You Can Now Get a Cake Pan That Lets You Bake Mini Tiered Cakes and We're Obsessed | 22 Words

We truly love to marvel at the big and the bold here in the States, but lately, there's been a trend that goes in the opposite direction...

Tiny food videos are the latest to go viral, their ridiculously adorable set up makes for some interesting dishes straight out of The Borrowers.

Amazon's brand new cake pan will have you posting your own tiny recipes in no time...

 

Welcome to the strange world of "tiny food."

I know what you're thinking... it must be fake? Well, you're mistaken...

These aren't just faux foods made by dollhouse enthusiasts, but instead, miniature versions of your favorite tea time classics.

Major publications have even got in on the antics, due to them becoming so popular, including National Geographic and Vogue!

And they are just as Instagramable as they are tasty.

People from all over the world have embraced the art form, resulting in over 1.3 million results for "miniature food" on YouTube.

And there's really no end to the creativity...

Today, viewers can find videos making recipes ranging from simple miniature BLT to an entire tiny Thanksgiving dinner.

The pictures are incredible...

Look at that tiny potato!

I don't think I could bring myself to eat that...

It's way too cute!

Although, cooking these miniature dishes isn't as simple as it sounds...

Since these foods are made with real ingredients, many of them need to be cooked. However, due to the size of the meals, "miniacs" have to build their own tiny appliances with functional stoves. They usually use a tea light as a source of heat.

You may think that heating food up with a tea light would take hours...

But according to Tiny Kitchen's Kate Murdoch, because the quantities of food are so small, sometimes they can be done in seconds.

Some tiny chefs even go as far as to make an entire functional tiny kitchen!

Just because these meals are small doesn't mean it takes a fraction of the time to produce these visual delights.

Jay Baron from the YouTube channel Walking with Giants has given an insight into how long it takes him to film the recipes...

His videos take "from eight hours to 50 hours" to make, and Kate Murdoch says that filming a 90-second video "can take three hours, depending on the recipe." That's a lot of effort.

Not everything you will find is cooked on a tiny stovetop...

Some of these artists go as far as making their own ovens specifically for baking tiny cakes and cookies.
