Show and Tell Monday ~ 1:12 Scale Pretty in Pink Patisserie Display Shelf

The talk on Wednesday went well! The magnet boards were a hit. Although it was a small crowd, I found it cozy and just nice for me. I was a little nervous, since this is the first time I am giving a talk. I'm just glad things went smoothly, and I raised some money to fund help promising young girls in school who has financial difficulty.

For the past 2 weeks, I've been working on a new concept patisserie shelf. Using the same antique style I've made for the bread display shelf earlier, I've transformed the top and made it into a contemporary patisserie shelf. I had fun working on this one, as this idea was conceptualized as I imagine customers walking by and peering at the delectable patisserie through the transparent screen. I also wanted the baker to an easier time cleaning up by wiping down the mosaic tile top after selling his artisan cakes for the day. That's how my inspiration came about! :)

Of course, it's even sweeter as I decided I wanted this to be pretty in pink! I also intend to have this style in other colours. What colours would you like it to be? Let me know.

The cake shelf measures approximately at 8.5cm tall, 9.5cm wide and 5cm deep.
