I got inspired over the weekend & created enough desert pieces to have my own mini bake sale.  Here are the best of the best.



Strawberry Cake with Pink Roses


Lemon Merangue Pie


Vanilla Cake


Cupcakes in 2 sizes


And here is my 5yr old DD's contribution to the bake sale.  She cut out the cake layers, helped with the icing & made the "sprinkles" herself.  She & I are both very proud of her first clay food.

The crumbling cake effect is great. I love how the icing looks too.

Thanks so much!  I got the inspiration from evrythngsblue's "Lemon & Strawberry Fake Cake" and the instructions for the cakes from the link she included to http://www.cdhm.org/tutorials/making-a-miniature-cake.html.  The pie & cupcakes were just trial & error.

It is liquid clay mixed (& mixed & mixed & mixed & mixed) with regular clay.  It felt like it took forever, but it worked.  The tutorial I listed above shows you the porportions & what to expect along the way.
