This is a Pikachu made of butter that I saw in Istanbul. I cannot stop thinking about it. pic.twitter.com/iT8PEcGCZK

Apparently, shaping butter into shapes, particularly shapes of cute cartoon characters, is a bit more common in Istanbul. Another Twitter user spotted a large butter Smurf not too long ago, although the lack of blue on said Smurf made it look more like a very jaundiced elf. At least the Pikachu made sense with the color.
This is apparently not the first time that someone has been inspired by the world of Pokémon to create food items, as there have been Pikachu pancakes, Pikachu burgers, and even Pikachu donuts in the recent past. (those were actually pretty cool).
