Miniature Biscuits in Tinbox

Remember the good old days when biscuits are stored in tin boxes at provision shop? Looking at these in miniature form bring back sweet childhood memories.

This is my personal collection for your viewing pleasure. I hope to add more designs in future. There are strawberry loveletters, chocolate chip cookies, alphabet crackers etc etc....

Want to purchase? Drop me an email at ilovelittlethings@gmail.com but do take note that you may have to wait a little while for the stock.

And just to sidetrack, there is another collection that I would like to expand- miniature canned drinks! These were from the 7-11 convenience chain series (Singapore version) but no longer available. If you really wish to own some, let me know. :) Bedtime now...

Miniature Steamboat

I made a miniature steamboat today. If you are interested to learn, please email me for the contact info. However, this is not for beginners!

This steamboat set takes more time and patience than anything else I'm selling on my blog. I am ABSOLUTELY happy with the way it turned out. I think it looks very nice! The overall presentation looks something like this. I will introduce the ingredients shortly.

Let's start with my favourite golden mushrooms and going clockwise on the outer edge, we have vegetables, japanese fish cake, oysters, some meat slices, lettuce, chinese mushrooms and corn. In the centre, we have some carrot slices, crabsticks (I love making this!), fishball and button mushrooms. Yummy!

Can you see the cooked prawns? The green thing on the left is broccoli and there are two slices of cuttlefish beside it.

As it takes so much effort to make this set, I'm going to keep it for my personal collection! =)

Miniature Donuts (very mini version)

My fruit tarts are all sold out... looks like I need to make more!

Before I do that, I got to rush a custom order for one of my customers - DONUTS! I tried to get some inspiration from Donut Factory, J Co Donuts and Missy Donut. Nowadays there are donuts with no holes - the entire donut is covered with chocolate or funny flavours. I think they don't look nice in miniature form, so I kept to more conventional designs.

I made this in 1:12 scale. Each donut is slightly less than 1 cm across. Very tiny! So there you are, a tray of miniature donuts and a bottle of coke!

For order/enquiry, email ilovelittlethings@gmail.com.

Miniature Fruit Tarts

I am super happy today after completing this set of fruit tarts. There is really a lot of work involved in making these miniatures. I had to do the tart shell first and let it dry for a few days before I could start work on the fruits and cream.

I love the strawberry and kiwi slices. And I finally figured out how to make blueberries - somehow it was difficult to get the right shade of purple.

I am also very happy today to meet someone who is just as crazy about food miniatures as me (I hope she doesn't mind that I used the term crazy ^_^) Finally, someone who can talk to me about the scale for miniatures (as in 1:12 or 1:24).
