Miniature Satay

Sometimes I am really amazed at myself. At being able to make things so small. I wish I had more time to create miniatures and learn new techniques.

Besides learning how to make miniatures online, I sometimes go to Mdm Ang (from Singapore) to learn how to make local food. Please go to her for lessons! She really has a deep passion for miniature craft. ^_^

Since my customers are mainly from overseas, I tend to specialise in more westernised food like pastries. However, it is nice to occasionally switch to local food. Let's have some satay then! I assembled this piece on my own and modified the cucumber as I didn't like the original one taught in class. I also kept all the items loose as it is quite fun shifting the onions and rice cake around - different display to suit different mood. Maybe I should try making a miniature chilli crab (add to my to-do list). Yummy!

Miniature Chocolate Fondue

It's time to party!

A miniature chocolate fondue set custom made for one of my customers. The fondue consists of fruit slices (60 slices altogether!), ice cream balls, waffle biscuits and juicy blueberries. There is also a plate of sweet creamy cupcakes and some assorted donuts. This took a few days of work to complete and I'm exhausted now!

I will post something new this coming weekend... stay tuned...

Miniature Xmas Gingerbread Man

Christmas is nearing and I am soooo excited!!!

There are many reasons to be happy about 2008. As I slowed down my pace of life this month, I realised that simple things can make me very happy. Here are my top 10 (not in any particular order):
1) Having a leisure breakfast outside
2) Drinking a cup of iced milo from McDonalds
3) Walking in a mall and listening to Xmas carols
4) Meeting up with old friends
5) Collecting nice miniatures
6) Making nice miniatures
7) Reaching new level of "Scratch & Win" in Facebook
8) Enjoying iced earl grey with vanilla ice cream at Coffee Club
9) Watching a nice drama on TV
10) Spaghetti Vongole!

Oh yes, just to illustrate item 5, I collected some miniature gingerbread man to celebrate Xmas! I don't mind selling you a few pieces just to share the festive joy! For sale in Singapore only. Email:

Miniature Sushi

It is my favourite month and I just love Christmas. Everyone is busy making miniature Xmas cakes and goodies but I guess I don't have time for that! I've been kept busy filling in custom orders and there are more to come!

Recently I found a shop selling miniature food handphone straps. I find them very plastic and some are just too huge. They need to drop by here! Nonetheless, this could be a good sign that miniature food is getting more popular in Singapore.

Ok... to start off the December month, here are some miniature sushi sets. Selling fast!
