Some more foods I made on Christmas. I tried to practice making cakes because I find them difficult and I think i've got it alright now Smiley. The only issue is sometimes I cut the slices too thin for them to look cute.


Totally wonky cutting - how do you get two different batches of completely different sized cube cakes?!




Sorry about the wonky lighting on this one.










This is a technical impossibility at a real bakery! It's supposed to be fruits on a sponge cake and i'm not sure how the sponge cake came to have the 'piped' border around the fruits. I'm pretty sure you can't do that!

These are all so adorable that it makes me want to run out and get some clay to try!  My 7 year old was wandering by the computer and saw these and LOVED them.  I personally think that the slight wonkiness (which I never would have noticed if you hadn't said something, I was too enthralled with the cuteness) makes them look even better, more realistic.  These rock!

Thanks a lot! I'm glad a 7 year old said it and not a 2 year old because they find everything tasty, so I wouldn't be sure if it was my work or not lol.

I get hungry making them. I'm surprised my weight hasn't ballooned since I started it.

They all look so yummie and well made.

Thank you Smiley. There is room for improvement though.

Holy.Crap.

You have -skill-!

Haha thank you! I wish I had more skill though, you should look up PetitPlat and Aiclay on google, they are absolutely amazing!

Thank you. I'll definitely keep making them Smiley.

how in the world do you make those mini kiwi fruits??? amazing!

How did this get down here?! Well it's a cane that you slice, but I don't think I should post a tutorial for it because I learnt it from a book and I pretty much copied the caning instructions step by step. So it's not my place to post a tutorial based so heavily on someone else's skill. I'm sure if you search 'kiwi cane' you'll find something though Smiley. Sorry!

We can pretend it's some pastry that was placed on top before baking Smiley Mmm, lemon shortbread!

They're glossy and adorable.
