Waffles & Crepes

February is really a busy time at work. I haven't got time to work on miniatures. At my leisurely rate of production, I am already very glad to have business at my Etsy shop! I have 78 sales so far and I'm pushing for 100! Those who are reading my blog, you are welcome to contribute to the target!

No time... so I made some simple waffles. I loved the way the round waffle turned out, considering I didn't use a waffle maker at all! The little square ones are from my earlier creations.

I made these for a crepe shop, which serves dessert crepes (left) and savoury crepes (right). The designs are exclusive to the shop as they are taken from the menu. If I owned a real crepe shop , I would have a display cabinet featuring all sorts of miniature crepes. Hmm.. I think I still enjoy making the miniature version more. :)

Miniature Butter Cookies

I made this a couple of months back and was contemplating if I should sell it off. In the end I couldn't bear with it! (Ok.. In the end I sold it! *Sob*) This is in 1:12 scale and made with air dry clay.

I love butter cookies in real life too. Somehow only this brand tastes good to me. My favourite are those with sugar topping, especially the one with three holes. Just yummy!

Breakfast set with bread rolls

Busy ... busy... really busy this month as it is the peak period at work.

Since I had some excess eggs and sausages, I made a breakfast set, this time with some bread rolls and apples. I ordered some materials and waiting for them to arrive. Can't wait to work on something new! Some of my work is in the process of drying... that is probably one problem with air dry clay but I'm too poor to buy an oven so polymer clay is out.

I love this photo with bright blue background. And I FINALLY figured out how to add labels to a photo. All I had to do was to zoom the picture to 100% so that I can insert text. I always use 25% and wonder why the text box can't be used... stupid me..

Valentine's Day is coming! Wishing everyone a Happy Valentine's Day!

Miniature Japanese Fish Waffles

How about some Fish Waffles (known as taiyaki in Japanese) to kick off the month of February?
These are entirely handmade. I'm not a fan of fish waffles but I love the way they look and enjoy watching how they are made in Japanese department stores.

I've cut one of the waffles and filled the inside with chocolate sauce (because I am not a fan of red bean filling either)! Chocolate and cheese are my favourite.

Relative size of the waffles compared to a pen. These are in 1:6 scale suitable for Blythe sized dolls and comparable to Re-ment size.

The miniature fish waffles are available for sale at my Etsy store
Only US$5 for the entire set! If you like other fillings other than chocolate, drop me an email for custom order -
