Show and Tell Monday ~ Another christmas present and a blue cake display shelf

I spent my weekend putting together a 1:12 scale christmas profiteroles tower. I've never tried putting togerther a tower in such a short time, but I've been really hard pressed for time. It can be done, but first, all the profiteroles have to be prepared. And I made sure I make more than enough!


The first picture shows the piece on its own, and the second picture shows how I display it in the display case - ready to be presented. It will be kept clean in the acrylic display box :)







I also wanted to show a work in progress photo I am currently working along with other projects. I've never painted a cake display shelf in blue colour before, I was actually worried how it would turn out, but I'm glad it turns out well. In fact, I really do like it myself too. I think this particular blue is very pretty. :)

I'll be leaving for holidays end of this week! I'm excited, and wishing all of you a Merry Christmas!

I'll be back before the new year!

  9. hello, I just stumbled on your blog and was very interested in making miniatures. Can you give me some advice where should I start or is there a good tutorial to give me the basics or if there is a book that shows you how to make stuff? thanks...Jenn\

  10. Hi Jennifer,

    There are many resources on the internet for basic miniature tutorials. What kind of clay are you looking to work with, Polymer or Air Dry?
    The medium you choose to work with, will have different techniques and materials required. There are many books out there too that has pictures of step by step instructions.

    There are many considerations. :)

    Are you based locally or overseas? Maybe you can leave your contact/email address again.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Pei Li
