Mini baking

At our Dolls House Club on Tuesday, for the second week running, Gill and I decided to make food.
Every now and again we have this urge to make polymer clay food, and I always think afterwards I could have made the real thing in half the time with better results. Still, then I would have to eat it, or my husband would. He gets a little excited when he sees the oven on and I tell him there is a cake in, only to be disappointed when he realises it is a miniature.
Anyway, back to miniature food. For ages we have wanted to get cake texture right, and I think this time we managed it. I am pleased with the texture, but not with the icing, although the cake does look pretty gooey.

The problem with all these cakes, and the food we make, is we have to have somewhere to put it, I can feel a bakery and tea room coming on . This will mean yet another rearrangement of the department store. This is a big job, especially with two cats who always appear at the wrong moment. They look as if butter would not melt in their mouths when they are asleep, this is not true.

I had a bit of clay left and made some bread, this looks OK, just not quite as good as the real thing.

Last week at the club I made a lemon mousse cake. I like the top which worked well but the mousse is not right, but I have an idea for that.

I think I have a way to go until my miniature food looks like Amanda Speakman´s, but they do say practice makes perfect.
Have a good weekend

  1. The rainbow sponge cake looks like a nice fluffy sponge and I like the top of the mousse very much.
