Confictionery! is a (planned) multimedia project created by Mochagatari, aka A Patchwork Scholar and is fourth (officially by concievement date) in the Gatari & Friends lineup. The series is one of the many that takes place in the world of Mousouzen, but is the first to have no relation whatsoever with the events and characters in the Genjitsutouhi Series (unlike Nine Tales and Ebb Tide).

The series stars a young princess named Jubilee Framboise, who is set up to become ruler of the Syrup District in the massive Dulcis Kingdom. Her parents, being the protective sort, had kept Jubilee barred to the castle grounds to protect her and give her as much time to learn how to be the proper queen as possible. Having become a bit bored of this life, Jubilee takes her best friend and bodyguard Spice Lupin (a cinnamon werewolf) and leaves the castle, deciding to go on an expedition to the neighboring sections of the country and experience everything she felt she missed.

And sure enough, Jubilee and Spice travel all over Dulcis and make various pals in both the neighboring royalty and the various citizens of the numerous states. They even get caught up in some evil plans that need foiling...especially those of the haughty Princess Chocolara and her demon henchmen.

The series was originally conceived on November 23, 2016, starting with the original design of Jubilee and moving from there. It's a WIP series ever since, with character designs still coming out.

On June 14th, 2017, a spinoff known as Confictionery × 365! was announced, featuring a line of new characters. As of current, the spinoff is simply a line of character designs.

Confictionery! shows examples of the following tropes:

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Chocolara to Chip.
  • Adorably Precocious Child: Jubilee. Sometimes her maturity surpasses the older princesses.
  • Adventure Towns: Each of the food kingdoms.
  • Aerith and Bob: The character names can range from Spice and Confetti to Timmy and Mel.
  • Affably Evil: For all the havoc she wreaks, Chocolara is less of a legitimately evil villain and more of a brat with a swelled head—when she's not trying to take over everyone else, she usually spends time doing her own thing or even trying to do politics sometimes.
  • Alliterative Name: A good deal of the kingdom names:
    • Cake Kingdom
    • Cookie County
    • Candy Country
  • All Witches Have Cats: Kitty, being the Cartoon Cat Witch. Chocolara even calls her a Crazy Cat Lady.
  • All Your Base Are Belong to Us: Chocolara's plans usually involve taking over the rest of the Dulcis Kingdom for a random petty reason.
  • Alpha Bitch: Princess Chocolara.

    • Although she is easily seconded by her cousin Ivory, who is an even bigger bitch.
    • And Princess Limoncella, though she grows out of it.
  • Always Someone Better: Mel always felt like second banana to her older brother Scotch, hence their strained relationship.
    • Also applies to Ivory, who while being lower in rank to Chocolara, is exceedingly better at getting evil deeds done than she is.
  • Ambiguously Human: Dulceans. They are described as a very bizarre crossover between food and humanoid—they’re very human, but have a natural and extremely high blood sugar content (to the point it’s syrup) that they are ultimately called a human subspecies or variant. According to Mochagatari, this is to emphasize that they are their own species while also not making them straight-up humanized food.
  • And Now You Must Marry Me: Chocolara never hesitates to try and get herself and Chip married, whether he likes it or not.
  • Animal Motifs: Honey has bat motifs.
  • Arc Symbol: The Confectioner's Anthology.
  • Author Appeal: Mochagatari enjoyed making dessert-based characters so much she made a series about them.
  • Bad Boss: Chocolara rarely treats her servants (including Lazarus) with actual respect.
    • And apparently, neither does Eclaire.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Spice was originally a hardly-controlled orphaned werewolf that had stumbled onto the Framboise courtyard—Jubilee’s kindness towards him is what led him to become a bodyguard and brother figure to her.
  • Bee Afraid: Queen Bibi and her Honey Works, whom are a bee-human hybrid and a colony of giant bees.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Chocolara and Lazarus. Every minute of every day.
  • Big Bad: As the main recurring villain, Chocolara.
  • Big Eater: Princess Meringue.
  • Big Fancy Castle: The princesses' castles.
  • Bigger Bad: Kitty the Cartoon Cat Witch and Inkwell.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: A bit of a recurring theme for the villains, but it mostly applies to Floss the Genie and Truffle.
  • Blinding Bangs: Honey's bangs completely conceal her eyes.
  • Blob Monster: Molasses, a mysterious monster that crawled out of the Creeping Woods that can shapeshift and impersonate people.
  • Brother-Sister Team: Pepper and Spear.
  • The Bully: Princess Limoncella acts like a schoolyard bully to the kids.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Chocolara never hesitates to remind everyone that she is the bad guy.
  • Cat Smile: Kitty when she does smile.
  • Cheap Gold Coins: The Gold. It's actually chocolate coins, which is why the Chocolate Commonwealth is so wealthy.
  • Cheerful Child: Pepper, Jubilee, and Milkshake.
  • Chick Magnet: Mr. Black.
    • And Lazarus, in his Devil's Food form.
  • Childhood Friends: Pepper and Mel.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Princess Moulee. While she is a laid-back and promiscuous flirt, she never gets forceful with her jokes and mostly does it for the sake of being funny.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Everyone at some point but Chocolara, Confetti and Cherie are the prime examples.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: Mr. Black and Lazarus to Confetti and Chocolara respectively.
  • Cool Teacher: Ms. Kettle, who while being rather reserved, is very connected and social with her students.
  • Crazy Cat Lady: Kitty, who has an entire army of both real and ink blot cats.
  • Cultured Badass: Mr. Black.
  • Cute Monster Girl: Honey Boo, a candy corn vampire girl.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Cherie. Her first reaction to Jubilee is to pinch her cheeks and coo over her.
  • Dark Is Evil: Lord Licorice is based on black licorice and is pretty evil.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Spice, Mel and Scotch are very fond of giving lip to the other characters.
  • Deal with the Devil: There's a technical one with Chocolara and Lazarus that worked in the former's favor.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: Licorice and Ivy-Lorraine are befriended by Jubilee after they're defeated.
  • Deliberately Monochrome: Kitty, Inkwell, and the Ink Cats are all in shades of black, white, and gray, being modeled after old cartoons.
  • Didn't Want an Adventure: Mel. All the time.
  • Distressed Dude: Chip is repeatedly kidnapped by Chocolara and her goons so she can marry him.
  • The Ditz: Princess Fritter doesn't have a lot going on upstairs.
  • Dork Knight: All the main characters, mirroring the cast of Genjitsutouhi.
  • The Dragon: Lazarus to Chocolara.
  • Edible Theme Naming
  • Eldritch Location: The Creeping Woods.
  • Evil Counterpart: Chocolara could be called an evil counterpart to Jubilee or Cherie, being a spiteful bratty princess to their proper and kind princess.
    • In turn, Ivory could be called an evil counterpart to Chocolara.
  • Flowery Elizabethan English: Princess Sweetie.
  • Free-Range Children: Zig-zagged. Jubilee, Mel, Pepper, and Honey are allowed to basically go wherever they please and do so on occasion, but they usually accompany at least an older person like Spice, Belgium, or Spear out of precaution and for transportation.
  • Fun Personified: Pepper.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Pepper, who calls herself a "handygirl".
  • Gender-Blender Name: Timmy Teviso, who is a girl.
    • And Princess Vanille.
  • Lady in Red: Princess Cherie.
    • And apparently, her mother, Queen Strawbel.
  • Little Miss Snarker: Mel.
  • The Lost Woods: The Creeping Woods.
