Freshly made Cakes and other sweet mini baking

Only got a minute.. but it's been so long I just had to say 'Hello' to y'all! You know I love to write and create vivid pictures with my prose but there is no time today..you'll have to just enjoy my pics:

Flouring my pans and gathering supplies...

I just loved making these teenie packages of Crisco shortening and philly cream cheese.

I also had fun making this 'icing' tray with it's 'stainless steel' surface.

What was not fun..actually was very frustrating and perplexing was finally developing my first original technique for making polymer clay shredded coconut. But when I finally got the texture I wanted it was worth all the time and different attempts. Very satisfying. What do y'all think of my Coconut cake with it's fondant sugared rose?

Finishing the crumb coat...yes yes..CLEAR embossing powder next time..


I think these speak for themselves...mmmm I can smell the marshmallow fluff!

Used some findings to create a couple of unique kitchen pieces. A coffee carafe and a wooden cake stand. Must contact Tom Bishop for some more wooden toppers.


                                                Moist vanilla bundt with strawberry jelly twists.


Care for a slice? My texturing has gotten much better I think. Also finding it easier to work with my clay now that it is cooler outside. I find my clay is firmer and easier to handle without 'melting' so much.

Lastly I am thrilled to pieces to finally own a steel engineers square! Shout out to Pepper of mitchymoo! Now I can get to making a few modern pieces (like a couch for one) with no excuses for uneven cuts or corners! I've been making mini's for over a year without one and could never cut a straight line! It's no scroll saw haha but it'll do!

And dig this ruler that has spaces to mark every mm with your pencil! My prayers have been answered! 
Also I have started a flickr page under Eat Cake Miniatures. Please add me if your on there! I'll be back with more to show y'all soon!
Mini hugs and BIG love to each and every one of you! Thank you for stopping by! xoxo

P.S: Here's a quick shot of the chimney I've done for my Maison Blanche ... gonna paint her white I believe:

So freaking cool!! I LOVE making mini anything!!!

    1. Always pleased to see you've popped in for a visit Caroline. I don't get too hungry playing with clay until I start adding scents and fooling around with icing..then I have to take a 'real' snack break, usually chocolate covered toffee or red velvet anything...and yes I'm getting fat. :)Hugs to you my mini-friend!

  13. Your food items are to die for! I do envy your talent with them - they are exquisite! The chimney is looking great too. I can see that I'll be visiting here often. But it does make me hungry just looking - soooo glad I can't smell too lol! I'm far too fat as it is!
