Show and Tell Monday ~ 1:12 Dollhouse Miniature Patisserie Delights Part 2

Just a few days more to Christmas! I'm getting excited!

Well last week, I made another piece of Patisserie Delights for a customer. I wanted each piece of work to be a little different for every customer. ;) So I changed one of the pastries...

Can you tell which one was that?? It was the star shape flaky pastry.

Well, I will be closing my etsy shop during the christmas break. Time to relax a little, do some more research, shopping and learning again! I will be back in Jan, hopefully feeling re-charged and with more new items and ideas for the new year!

Wishing all of you a Merry Christmas and wonderful blessed new year!

Show and Tell Monday ~ 1:12 Dollhouse Miniature Patisserie Delights

I can't believe Christmas is just going to be a week away...I don't have a habit of gift exchange, but I will be getting 2 presents for close friends. It will be quite easy as I already decided what to get for them.

I got this idea when I received a request to have a customized order for a "sampling plate" - meaning one of each of all the patisseries I made in my previous piece. I initially was thinking of the usual display tray, but knowing it was going to be one each, I thought this would be a better way to display it.

Here's my interpretation of a patisserie sampling plate. I call it the Patisserie Delights....

First, I wanted a vintage, elegant wood display to bring out all the pretty patisserie. To soften the look, I added some more faux grass and white pretty flowers.

The patisseries are not glued to the piece, so it can be arranged in any way.

Show and Tell Monday ~ 1:12 Dollhouse Miniature Double Layer Cake Display Shelf

This week was a good week for me, I finished 2 projects and also sold 2 christmas profiteroles tower! I was overjoyed. The 1:12 dollhouse miniature profiteroles tower was something I enjoyed making, though a bit time consuming. But it was fun seeing the whole tower forming.

I wanted to show photos of the 1:12 dollhouse miniature double layer cake display shelf I created and finished this week. The entire piece was made with the idea to be a window shop display shelf. Hence, the patisseries had to be eye catching, colorful and vibrant.

Imagine passerbys walking along and can't help but stop and look at the mouth watering dollhouse miniatures cakes and patisseries. This piece is all about the details.

With that, I present you the 1:12 Dollhouse Miniature Double Layer Cake Display Shelf.
