I love the new stuff I gotten this week. Some materials, and 2 books. I haven't had much time to look through them as I just got them in the mail today. But maybe I should do a post on them next week!

Decorations for 1:12 Miniature cupcakes is another challenge. The roses had to be mini-small, so I had to make them all from scratch. Various decorations were used: strawberries, gold dragees, banana slices, blueberries, coloured roses, sugared flowers :)
If you see on the table, I had a US one cent coin as a gauge for scale. I can put 4 cupcakes on the one cent coin.
Going to make a few more other coloured ones!

As I mentioned last week, I made a few wreaths, but in the end, I felt the pink rose wreath was most compatible. :)
The poll was closed last week, and thank you all who have participated. Wow, it was interesting and exciting to see which colour was leading. I did experimented on Lemond Custard, but for some reason, the colour was still a bit way too bright! In the end, I painted a few coats of white over it.
Right now, the chair seems a bit plain, but I thought of a beautiful idea to decorate that chair which I will work on this week. I can't wait to see it completed.
I worked on 2 new pastries (which I had to make for the bulk order) this weekend, and I placed the samples on the tray. I'm not sure if I'll use them in this piece, but I intend to add more work to it anyway.
The plant near the door represents new beginnings...
