Handmade Christmas Ornaments - Faux Macarons

I'm excited to show you this batch of handmade christmas ornaments that I made. My customer wanted christmas ornaments to be made with these faux macarons, and I happily whip up a batch!

I'm also enjoying the piping process and it's actually quite fun and relaxing for me to do it. There's another design I want to try out and I'll have to fork out some time to try it, the thing is I don't know if I will pipe that out or try another method, but we'll see how that works out :)

These are going to new homes! Hope their new owners love them!

Ms Panda and Mr Hedgehog

I'm currently hooked watching this korean drama series....just because it has a cake and pastry chef theme.

The cakes are beautiful and some are cute. The panda cafe has a lovely and homely charm to it.

For those of you who are always looking for movies or shows related to cake and pastries for inspiration, or just looking to watch something light-hearted, this might be something of your interest. :)

Being featured on Magnolia Rouge

Magnolia Rouge is one of my favourite blogs to look at. Everything there speaks elegance. :)

It's one of my favourite blogs to look at when I want to be inspired by colours and ideas.

And today I feel so honored and privileged when I saw my own dollhouse miniature pink layer cake being featured in one of their colour inspiration board. Being featured on their blog means a lot to me because I had been admiring their style for the longest time.

I love this colour combination so much that I had to share.

Fascinated with the blue colour lately, I went onto a craze and made these blue shades cake pops!

So serene and peaceful, I hope you'll like them!

Color Inspiration - Bright Star Film

If you wondered where I get my color inspiration from, I get them from almost everywhere. I just pay attention to a lot of things in my day to day life.

Just the other day, I saw my mom's shirts hanging on the clothes line and immediately I saw that those colours were complimenting one another and she just happened to have her craze over purples and brown.

2 nights ago, I was watching a film and by chance, I picked Bright Star.

The reason was rather superficial, I'll admit. I was lured in by the protagonist's occupation, who was a stitcher - she stitches and hand sew her clothes.

Another reason why I picked to watch this was because I was lured in by the photograph below.

The colours in this film is just amazing. The story is OK, but I love the clothes, fabrics, colours and the set. Just by looking at it, you can tell a lot of effort was being put to ensure that the audience is in for a beautiful visual treat! I can't even describe it to you, but I have not seen such a beautiful film for a very long time.

At times, there were very dark rich colors, and at times, they used very soft feminine colors. I think I want to re-watch this again.

So for you who loves colors, you might love this too :)

I'm in love with this neapolitan macaron necklace!

This yummy flavour combination makes me smile :)

I just enjoy spending time fine tuning and coming out with different colour combinations, as you can see.

Hope this makes you smile too :)

Have a great week!

Christmas Jewelry Gifts - Pre-order now!

I've designed these faux macaron jewelry which are now available as pre-orders for christmas jewelry gifts!

I still can't shake off the macaron fever and have continued to come up with more macaron jewelry designs.

And of course, because the holiday season is fast approaching, I wanted to do something cheery and festive.

Although these designs are far from "cheery", as the colours are played down to cool wintry tones, except for the vanilla bean macaron design with holly leaves and berries, I am actually happy that my friends have taken a liking to these colours. I wasn't sure how receptive folks were to that, but to my surprise, the wintry blue snowflake macaron design seem to be a few of my friends' favorite. I know I wanted people to feel a sense of calm and peace when they hold it. :)

My friends are so used to seeing my miniatures that they naturally thought these were dollhouse miniatures until I told them these were life size fake macarons.

Each macaron is about 4cm wide and about 1.5cm thick.

For the entire month of October, I'm accepting these pre-orders for a special discounted price!

I personally know how hard it is to shop for unique, meaningful and something special for christmas, and I think these will definitely delight your family and friends. Just remind them it's not edible!

Enjoy great savings by starting your christmas holiday shopping early.  :)

You can order these fake macarons jewelry at my shop here.
