It's been a while since I attempted to make some miniature pastries.
Ever since, I have this fascination with this versatile flower. Last week, I decided to try my hand on making some miniature pastries -1:12 scale miniature pansy cupcakes. The first thing I did was to scout around for images of pansies. I like yellow so I will try my hand on yellow pansies for a start. The petals have to be made one by one and assembled after that, so it is time consuming. Also, I handpainted them as well in order to achieve that realistic pansy look. My personal takeaway from making miniature pansies is that they are not that difficult to make, in terms of shaping the petals. They can be made easily, but it's the painting that makes or break it. So I suggest to do a lot of close up study of a pansy flower, and try to create that using painting techniques.
What do you think of these miniature pansies cupcakes? I hope you will like them!
Up next, I'll try my hand on violet pansies. :)
