Eclair Jewelry - Dessert Necklace

I am feeling so productive today and wanted to write one more post before I leave for my vacation tomorrow! I've been quite excited to show you all what I've been working on, and honestly I have other plans to expand this idea, but we would have to wait till I am back.

So earlier on, I sculpted some fake eclairs from scratch. I did some on 1:12 scale a little while back but I've never made something of this size. They are about 5cm long.

Some fake eclairs without cream
I covered them with one coat of chocolate sauce and waited for them to dry. I then decided that a second coat is much needed as I could still see some empty spots around.

An obligatory hand shot

So for my first try, I turned them into necklace!

Made some vanilla cream to go in between the eclairs

I am excited with this idea and plan to come up with more colors and variety, maybe magnets too! That would be so cute and cool. This will definitely be on my list of to do when I am back.

This eclair necklace is available in my store here.

Dollhouse Miniature Flowers - White and Blue Flowers Bouquet

I've completed this a little while ago and didn't realize I've not blogged about it!

I remembered making some 1/12 scale white flowers and made it into a bouquet. During that time, I was really inspired by the clean, pristine colors of a real life bouquet I saw and so I got down to make some of them. I was wondering if I should leave it alone or add some leaves to it. I asked for some comments on my facebook page and was really grateful for the many comments I've gotten.

It wasn't hard for me to come up with a decision - I decided to make some dusty miller leaves to go with this bouquet!

I'm so pleased with the result. I'm really loving the soft, calming colors of this bouquet.

Then I decided to make some blue crates to go along with this presentation.

I hope this makes you smile!

On a separate note, I will be away on some much needed vacation next week from 4 May to 24 May. I am excited and hope to come back with more inspiration! During the time I'm away, my shops will still be opened, but please bear with me - I can only mail out orders when I'm back.

Thank you so much!

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! :)
