Dollhouse Miniatures 1:12 Scale Strawberry Tart

From time to time, I like to treat myself to a favourite pastry or dessert. :) The other day, I passed by Delifrance and saw their freshly baked strawberry tart. It looked really yummy and I was so tempted. I knew I had to buy it. I actually had to hold back from eating it right away since I bought it to motivate myself to make the  dollhouse miniatures  version. :)

Normally it would have taken me a few days to get the dollhouse miniatures version done, but I had these slightly larger strawberries stashed somewhere, so I was able to get them done up pretty quickly - to my delight!



I ate the tart right away after photographing it the next day, and it tasted really good....
I like simple, wholesome strawberry tart. A crusty tart base filled with custard cream, with sliced strawberries on the top. A thick layer of nappage gives the fresh strawberries a shiny gloss surface. Nothing can be better than that.

Although the dollhouse miniature ones that I made were a little different from the one I bought, I like how the peanuts at the side added a special touch to them.

For now, they will be placed in Ruki's Bakery which I'm working hard on whenever I can.

If you like some delicious strawberry tarts for your dollhouse bakery, please contact me using the comments box :) I just might whip up a few sometime and list them in my shop soon too.
