Yummy and Savory Shiba Inu Rice Dish

This Shiba Inu “bento” style rice dish is a good introduction to the world of “cute edibles”.

It’s not so tiny and tedious to make like typical cute edibles – and at the end of it all – you can actually eat it for a fairly satisfying meal.

The key to this recipe is rice consistency. 

You want fairly well formed but sticky rice so the shapes will hold together well.


  • Seaweed
  • Rice
  • Eggs
  • Sliced cheese
  • Food coloring if you want to color the egg whites
  • Salt
  • Mayonnaise
  • Curry powder with sodium.
  • Dry pasta

Tools Needed:

  • Cling Wrap
  • Scissors
  • Patience


  • Don’t be too worried about getting the shapes exactly right – sometimes the simpler the better
  • If you plan to make a lot, consider getting a nori paper cutter

Shiba Inu Strawberry cake

Shiba Inu Strawberry Dog Cake

Kawaii Simple Shiba Inu Cake

I love the simplicity of this Shiba Inu cake.

I actually have no guilt eating it because I didn’t spend ten trillion hours making it.

Great for birthday parties or any special Shiba day!


  • Round Sponge Cake
  • Dark Chocolate
  •  Strawberry
  • Cream Cheese
  • Whipping Cream
  • “Chocolate” whipping cream (cream mixed with chocolate milk)
  • Sugar

Tools Needed:

  • Pastry bag pipe for making face
  • Parchment paper
  • Cake cream spreader


  • Try to get the eyes, nose and mouth proportions right – this simple step makes the whole “face”
  • You can add strawberries to the outside of the cake for extra decoration – maybe a strawberry dog collar?

Shiba Inu Bento Box

Two Bites Kitchen Shiba Inu Bento Box

Delicious Shiba Inu Lunch Box

Here’s another Shiba Inu bento box that is a bit simpler to design.

I really like the simplicity of the Shiba face design.

Having the rice colors separated and then added together makes the face assembly much easier.

Feel free to use whatever “add-on” lunch items that you have handy.

With the Shiba Inu face being the main star of this recipe, you can decide how much you want to design the remain food edibles.

shiba inu cartoon butt dango

Two Bites Kitchen Shiba Inu “Butt” Dango

“Glute – e – nous” and Popular Rice Treat!

These adorably cute “mochi” like treats are super popular in Japan.

This recipe is fairly simple, albeit a bit time consuming.

The hardest part is molding the Shiba face and Shiba butt.

If you have molding clay or play-doh, you can practice the shapes before attempting this recipe.

Best when eaten immediately, though they can be reheated with a “wet” / steam method.

shiba inu macaron

Shiba Inu Macarons By Sumopocky

Shiba Inu A’ La Francaise

Macarons are a popular and tasty French treat.

Shiba Inu macarons are “tres mignon” French treats that can be made with a bit of baking skill and some patience.

What’s great about this particular recipe is that you can adapt the design of the Shiba Inu face to your “skill” level.

Also, you can check out Sumopocky’s other macaron filling recipes and use the filling that best suits your taste buds.

Use Your Favorite Cookie Recipe (Premade dough is fine as well)

These Shiba Inu cookies are all about the decorations.

You can use your favorite easy or complex cookie recipe to form the main dough.

Here’s one of my favorite basic cookie recipes. 

After that, you’ll just use a Shiba Inu cookie cutter and then cut, bake, and decorate!

Shiba Inu cookie cutters come in face only or full body designs. The face only designs are simpler and have more for of the cute, “kawaii” feel.

The full body designs portray a true Shiba Inu body shape and is a good base for more formal or complex design techniques.


  • Cookie dough
  • Royal icing (colors optional but recommended)
  • Edible decorations of your choice

Tools Needed:

  • Shiba Inu shaped cookie cutter
  • Piping bags
  • Piping tips


  • You don’t have to make your own royal icing from scratch, there are many pre-made icing packs that are easy to use and work great.
  • If using pre-made icing, add color after blending well
  • Don’t stress about the design, if you have zero artistic skills, just stay as simple and clean as possible

Remember that Food Network Show, “Semi-Homemade” by Sandra Lee?

This recipe by ClockworkLemon takes the same concept with either the brownies or cake being easily made from boxed mix – while the Shiba Inu designs is what gives this recipe the Wow factor.

I love this recipe as it’s relatively easy and can feed a bunch of people (perfect for parties) at once or one person over a period of time.

It’s not like those meticulous recipes that take 3 hours to complete and 3 seconds to eat….


  • Brownie or Cake mix
  • Royal Icing (with different colors)

Tools Needed:

  • Pastry Pipes
  • Wilton #1 Tip
  • Wax or parchment paper
  • Skinny wooden sticks


  • Neat and simple is WAAAAAY better than complex and ugly

Shiba Inu Pull Apart Bread

Shiba Inus truly make the best Shiba Inu breads!

The perfect color, the perfect shape, and oh, so addicting.

Use any of your favorite bread recipes.

The filling part is optional. You can do a custard, red bean, or cream cheese filling of your choice.

Fun, fun!


  • Bread dough
  • Optional: Filling of your liking

Tools Needed:

  • Chocolate pen
  • Optional: Piper for filling
  • Round Bundt Style Cake pan


  • You don’t have to do both face and Shiba butt. You can choose one or the other for simplicity..



Wilton 15-piece Decorating Set

Great starter set. Includes meringue powder to make royal icing. Love the silicone bottle for ease of use.

Joesph Joesph Adjustable Rolling Pin

Do you know exactly how thick to roll out your cookie dough? I sure don’t, so this is a l.i.f.e. s.a.v.e.r.

Disposable Decorating / IcingBags

I don’t enjoy clean up as much decorating so disposable icing bags are perfect.

Icing Bag Couplers

You need these to change to various tip sizes for your icing

Icing Bag Ties

These ties are essential to keep your icing bag closed so the icing doesn’t spill or dry out.

PME Piping Tip Set

PME tips are premium stainless steel tips made in the U.K. They cost more than other tips, but are worth the extra cost – especially for details and lettering

Food Coloring AmeriColor Student Kit

Americolor is one of the best brands for icing coloring. Stock up more on Super Red, Super Black and Super White

Gooday 6 PCS Scriber Needles

Of course you can get by with toothpicks, but if you plan to do a lot of icing, these needles will make it easier.

FooDoodler Marking Pens

For cookies, marking pens are a MUST HAVE… You can draw out outlines before piping as well as add details

Wilton Tube Fluted Bundt

This is the perfect bundt pan for making the Shiba Inu bread recipe. The shape actually resembles a Shiba Inu head and ears if you look closely.

Cute Food Mold Cutters

These cutters provide the perfect shapes for cute / kawaii food design. Can be used on dough, vegetables, and more…

Nori / Seawood Kawaii Face Cutter

This amazing tool will save you a ton of time cutting out tedious seaweed shapes for facial features on Shiba Inu rice designs

Wilton “Already Made” Icing

If you don’t want to deal with making royal icing and the necessary drying time, this buttercream icing is a great alternative. Simply tint with colors. Because of softer consistency, best for very basic designs…

Tracing Paper

Tracing paper is great to transfer designs onto a cookie. All you need is an edible ink marking pen like the Foodoodler above.

Wilton Cake Decorating Brush Set

Use brushes for one of my favorite cookie design techniques shortcuts: painting on dried royal icing
