I came across these picture perfect / too pretty to be consumed Japanese dessert and treats and I knew I have to share it with you. These little pieces of edible art are from Teneya (たねや), a Japanese confectionary shop with over 45 years of history. Here I have picked a few of the best to showcase their skills and dedication to delivery these premium confectionaries. If you get a chance to visit Japan, please pay a visit and let me know how good they taste!
