If you haven’t heard of the huge Studio Ghibli showcase coming to Melbourne, you should probably end the lease on that rock you’ve been living under.
To celebrate the animated film fest, Ascot Vale’s favourite vegan bakery is getting in on the action. Mister Nice Guy’s Bakeshop is throwing an epic Studio Ghibli party on 3 September, including Totoro doughnuts, Matcha milkshakes and cheesecakes, ‘soot sprite’ cupcakes and heaps more. Mr Nice Guy’s co-owner, Deb, is a huge Ghibli fan, and the bakery is gonna be decked out head-to-toe in true Miyazaki style.
There’s a cherry on top, too. Come dressed as your favourite Ghibli character and you’ll get a free coffee. Score.
Last time Mr Nice Guy’s did a themed day (Game of Thrones), stock sold out by 3pm. So get in early if you want to get spirited away.
Where: Mr Nice Guy’s Bakeshop, 151 Union Rd
When: Sunday 3 September, 8am – 5pm
