Hong Kong is packed with cute stuff from Sanrio characters we love. Today we show you some very sweets cakes that we discovered during the last trip. Aren’t they just adorable?

There are basically two types of character cakes: The ones that are really shaped like the figures such as the Hello Kitty and Pompompurin cakes you can currently get at the Hong Kong’s Maxim’s cakes. We hope they taste as good as they look. Which cake do you like best?
