Just some foods that I made when I was bored. I'm trying to use up all my Sculpey III so that I can buy new Fimo clay... Sculpey III is way too soft for this type of work!





I only found out I forgot to salt two of my pretzels after I baked them... i'm really blind!





This cake was a bit of a fail actually... I wanted the red jam to look more realistic and liquid-y but it just didn't work. I actually just can't do cakes in general, there's something about layers that screws me up.



Some Japanese Wagashi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wagashi) which I was hoping would turn out more translucent.





These were made out of air dry clay - it's impossible trying to get the smeared, rough texture of ice cream on Sculpey III.

For me - one good year of practice until I got it right, and some of them still aren't right. I actually take up tiny crafts like amigurumi and this because I like to 'save money' by making a craft that 'uses less material' which is the worst excuse ever, because it's so small it just means you make lots of it!

ADORABLE!  I love how you did the ice cream scoops, they're perfect.  I don't do this craft regularly but I love looking at other people's, and you're right, the ice cream made out of polyclay never looks quite right!

Thanks everyone! You don't know how many times I cried over the ice cream - it just never looked right and when these turned out, I think I declared it 'happiest day of my life!'. So far nothing has trumped it - I lead a sad, mini clay foods-dominated life.

Thanks a lot! And pshaw, why wait till breakfast? Waffles should be eaten all day in my opinion - I love waffles.

Those waffles look delicious. I'm in awe of people who can make realistic miniature food.
