Show and Tell Monday ~ 1:12 Dollhouse Miniature Double Tier Cake Display Shelf

This has been quite a fruitful week for me. I worked on many little projects, accomplished some new desserts, and will be listing them on my etsy store slowly. I also worked on some new 1:12 miniature scale cupcake creations!

I love to look at real cupcake creations and think of ways to create them in 1:12 scale miniatures. A few weeks ago, I came across the butterfly cupcakes. Actually it's 2 sugar cookies planted sideways on top of some cream. In the middle, they added strawberries on it. I was quite attracted by it, and so I attempted to make them earlier this week.

Also, I made an antique/vintage double tier cake display shelf... ;)

I've not decided what I will put on the top tier, but I think the cupcakes look good on the bottom tier.

On an another note, I have some wild ideas in my head...and I am opening up this offer to brick and mortar shop owners. Would you like to have my cake/bakery display shelf in your physical shop? I am looking for exposure opportunities, and some of the places you can place this is at your cashier's counter. These unique items by itself give character to a room/shop, draws attention only to the observant, and inspire conversation when displayed. We can work out the details. Leave me a comment if you would like to explore this idea! I'll get back to you!

  2. Hi Pei Li,,, I love your two tier pastry stand. I would love to see what you come up with for the butterfly cupcakes. Keep us posted on that. I think putting a display in a brick and mortar store would be great! I am going over to etsy now to take a look at your shop ;) hugs, gail

  3. PeiLi, that is such a pretty stand. I can also see your bakery goodies in a bakery by the cash register. It would be a lovely gift for someone who loves pastries, don't you think? Good luck,

  15. If I had a b&m shop, I sure would want your cuties in my shop!They would definitely be hot sellers! Maybe you need to find some forums where shop owners congregate (if such a thing exists) to show them your stuff.
