Artist’s description of this Catbus cake:
The Catbus, is a character in the Studio Ghibli film My Neighbor Totoro. It is a large grinning, twelve-legged cat with a hollow body that serves as a bus, complete with windows and seats covered with fur, and a large, bushy tail. Catbus is believed to be based on the Japanese bakeneko (“changed cat”), an ancient urban legend where cats that grow old learn to shape-shift.
Being that Im a huge cat lover, he is one of my all time favorite character from Ghibli Studios!!
