With more time for breakfast, artist Manami Sasaki found a creative way to start her day.

Sasaki's work features flowers, trees, and even portraits, and they're all edible.

From a surprisingly accurate Zen garden (complete with sour cream-raked pebbles) to elegant cranes and reproductions of famous artworks, Sasaki has made bread her new canvas.

She then posts designs on Instagram under the caption “STAY HOMEのあさごはん” (stay home no asagohan, stay home breakfast).

These aren’t unattainable — or inedible. Sasaki shows before and after shots of the toast pre- and post-cooking, and lists the ingredients used for each theme.

"It's important that it actually tastes good and that people who see it feel like it's delicious," Sasaki, 27, told Insider.

She says she came up with the idea of using toast as art after having more time to spend making breakfast at home rather than grabbing something quick at a convenience store, or skipping the meal altogether.

“I was living a busy life, but in this situation I have learned to value the rhythm of the day,” says Sasaki. “I get up early in the morning and stick to my breakfast. My mind feels at ease with the richness that comes from taking the time to do this.”

“If your mind is restless day after day and your mood is unstable, you will be more and more unhappy over the next few months,” Sasaki says. “You have to take care of your own moods. For me, who I am is to express myself. So I’m keeping my mind on creating.”

Sasaki uses just food, a sewing needle, and a butter knife to make her creations.

She then bakes the food, allowing her to see what it looks like both baked and not baked.

It's important to Sasaki that the food still looks like something you would want to eat after she makes art out of it.
