Things are tough at the moment, so why not take a short break by checking out this delicious looking cake inspired by Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

Reddit user Happy-Breakfast has shared this Tom Nook creation with other Animal Crossing fans online, and we must say it looks rather wonderful. You can see an edited timelapse of the whole thing being put together in the video below, complete with feature decorations, his signature shirt, and even the layers that make up his insides. The real Tom Nook isn't made of chocolate cake, is he?

If you're considerably more talented at cake making than we are, perhaps you could try to make something similar at home to surprise any loved ones who are big Animal Crossing fans?

Strangely enough, this isn't the first time we've seen an Animal Crossing cake since New Horizons launched. A (hopefully) easier-to-create design was also shared on Instagram a little while back.

Would you tuck into a Tom Nook cake? Perhaps it's best not to think about that too much...
