Miniature strawberry chocolate cake

Hello everyone!

My last post for the month of March. Recently I've come across a saying - "Applauses fade away, trophies collect dust, winners are soon forgotten" It should remind us not to get lost in the pursuit of achievement or in the ratrace.

Back to the topic! My first attempt at miniature cake. I lined the cake with wholesome strawberries and decorated the centre with strawberry slices. I love the way it turned out so if it doesn't sell, I'll save it for myself and Twinkle (my Puki)! ^O^

Birthday Treats

It is my birthday tomorrow and there is every reason to be happy!

I made some fruit cupcakes to celebrate! I just love the colours and the cream. This was a custom request by a really sweet customer. Hopes she likes it as much as I do.

How about some different kind of cupcakes? Pink hearts with lemon slice and silver sprinkles - you can call it love cupcakes! These go with the mango ice cream for an extra sweet treat! You can tell that I am very excited with all the exclamation marks!!!

Cupcakes are very popular. I'll make more when exams are over by end of April. I have been quite productive last weekend and should have enough miniatures to last through the next one and a half month! Time to concentrate on my studies ^o^

Meanwhile, happy birthday to my dearest friends - Sabrina and Jeff!!

Twinkle twinkle little star

I know I've updated my blog not too long ago, but I just can't wait to show you my little girl!

She's got a name now - Twinkle! My mum had suggested Twinkie, but I thought Twinkle sounds good! My husband calls her quek quek cos she loves duckies - just check out her shirt and toy pet. She loves food especially sweet treats!

I made those cupcakes and ice cream. I'll do a close-up on the cupcakes soon. I'm also very excited to have followers on my blog! A big thank you! Please bear with me as my rate of production is really slow due to my job commitment.

Have a sweet weekend ahead! ^_^

Making Teddy Bear cookies

Need something to cheer myself up today, so let's make some teddy bear cookies!

The chocolate and original flavors have already been done. So let's get down to those with pink icing! Sprinkle some sugar crystals if you have a sweet tooth.

This is the only one set available - it's very tiring shaping those little bears!

Donuts & Pong

I love the month of March. Peak period at work is coming to an end and I can finally get down to my studies and of course work on a couple of custom orders.

Miniature donuts are fun and easy to make:
1) Roll a small ball of clay (shade of brown)
2) Press it down slightly
3) Roll an even smaller ball of clay (any colour you like!) and press it flat
4) Put it on top of the brown clay and try to "stick" them together. Do it gently!
5) Use a toothpick and poke a hole through the centre
6) You get a mini donut!

This time however, I worked with "liquid" clay to create an icing effect for the topping. Icing goes well with little sprinkles! The end result looks like this. I think I'll use less sprinkles next time.

If you follow the steps above, you would get these colorful glazed donuts. Which style do you prefer?

And meet my girl! Puki Pong from Fairyland. I have yet to name her! I love her happy face. The clothes are from spampy.eaph.com/spampystuff.htm

She is trying to show you her underwear! She's so adorable, just what I need to perk me up when I'm studying! (She is standing in front of my stack of boring actuarial notes). I'll feed her with my mini food soon. :)

Miniature Slice Cakes

Cakes! My first attempt at sliced cakes and I decided to make them colourful!

This was a lot of hard work! I had to do the base layer first followed by separate layers of pink, yellow and purple. I couldn't put the layers on top of each other and then slice them because I wanted the middle layer to have a creamy effect. And working with air dry clay means that I have to get things right the first time - when the clay dries, it would be hard to reshape it.

Here is the final presentation of the cakes. Hope you like them!
