Dollhouse Miniature Pattern Silicon Mold

Hi all! Just a quick update. I experimented with a new dollhouse miniature silicon mold this week and am excited to show you what I did with it.

The new mold has mini repeated designs on it, and I think they are just perfect to decorate your dollhouse miniature cakes, pastries, cupcakes with them!

If you have been thinking of how to make modern motif designs on cake surfaces, well this mold might just come in handy!

This particular one which I have experimented comes with a beautiful modern design.
As you can see, the mold surface is huge - so you can make bigger cakes and then cut them into smaller slices if you wish.

If you want the design to stand out, dust the surface with very little acrylic paint with a dry brush.

Mold measures 4.3cm by 3.3cm.

Have fun decorating your cakes with this handy dollhouse miniature mold! :)

A Trip To See Tulips In Singapore

I was excited when I knew there was going to be a tulip show at Gardens By The Bay. There was no way I was going to miss this, so I picked a less busy weekday to see the tulips. A few days before I went, my friend in Seattle went to a tulip farm and I was so envious after seeing all the photos from his trip! Although I know the local show cannot be compared to a real farm visit, I think the excitement from just knowing I can see this beauties in real life is enough to bring a smile to my face.

First, I must admit I skipped taking photos of the decorations that come with this tulip exhibition such as the candy house and figurines because I didn't think there was anything special about them. So the photos I am going to post are mainly just flower photos. I had a fun time looking and admiring them.

This is the second time I entered the flower dome, and actually almost most of the succulent plants and African flowers are the same. The only difference this time round was that the center stage was used to feature tulips.

I took this picture as I wanted to remind myself to attempt making these colored leaves the next time round!

Love the colors of these!

Intrigued by the petals

And now, the tulips!

These yellow ones caught my attention the most!

These white and purple ones make a great combination!

A sea of blooming flowers

Hyacinths were on display too

I love the gradient shade of these petals

The one and only display I took photograph of

I hope you enjoy the mini walk with me!  Have a great weekend!

Learn to Make Your Own Dollhouse Miniature Macaron Tower

I'm so pleased to announce my new PDF tutorial that I've completed recently!
This time round, I've written a tutorial on how to make your own dollhouse miniature macaron tower!

The easiest way to purchase it is to go to my Etsy Store here where you can download the tutorial immediately right after making payment.

Air dry clay is the medium being used in this tutorial, so there will be components that you need to allow time to dry before you can proceed. However, I have given a lot of care and thought into writing this in a sequential way that if you follow the same sequence, you will have a smoother, effortless process.

This tutorial is also slightly more lengthy than the previous ones I've written. Estimated project time, not including drying time may take between 2 or 4 hours or more, depending on how fast each person works.

I hope you will have fun experimenting and creating your own dollhouse miniature macaron tower!
