This is what happens when someone who’s trying to eat less sweets has a craving… mini cheesecake!

These were so much fun to make, except for the fact that I was using really old paint (powder mixed with strong smelling mystery liquid). I will never use that stuff indoors again! Actually, I’ll probably just use the powders with liquid clay and get rid of the other stuff altogether.

But, besides all that, so much fun! I do wonder, if you where going to make cheesecake, what would you use to texture it? The best I could get was scraping sandpaper along the sides…

You did an amazing job! If it weren't for the little metal things I would have thought at first glance it was actual cheesecake.  The sandpaper you used to texture it worked, it gives a better look to the cheesecake.  DH says that it rocks cause it's his favorite dessert...lol.  Grin

Good job!

What grade of sandpaper did you use?  A larger grit will give you deeper, more variable pits in the slices.

That tutorial is really neat for cake, and it would probably be great for bread too! Cheesecake doesn't have the same texture as regular cake though, so I don't think it would give me exactly what I'm looking for here.

Wow, it looks so real. I've seen a lot of clay cheesecakes but your strawberries look the most real out of all of them!

the little mettal things that make the loop are they just like a straight pin or like a screw? ive been wanting to make stuff like this but all i can find is the straight pins and i always thought they were like screws. cause i thought the straight ones would just pull out or something. so help me out here.

They're eye pins (straight pins with loops already on one end, you can do this yourself with round pliers or buy them like that). I use pliers to bend the other end and put a little hook on it, kind of putting a U shape on the end. Once you drive it into the clay, smooth some clay over the hole and bake! Another option (depending on what sort of piece you're making) is to use flat head pins. The head will either stay on the outside or be stuck inside if you choose to bake it into the clay.

Ha! I love this! Cheesy

That's the reason why I even looked at this thread. I saw the picture on the front page and thought it was a real cake and wondered what's the purpose of the skewers.

Great job, the cake looks very real!

I saw the picture and my first thought was, "That is the most delicious-looking set of friendship necklaces ever."  It actually does remind me of some of those friendship necklaces (8-year-old you and your best friend each keep half of a heart pendant), only classier.  And tastier.

I love this-I think it would be perfect for a bridal shower, each bridesmaid could have a charm for a bracelet. Instead of cheesecake you could do do a bridal cake. The cheesecake looks so real! Great job!

I'll admit, I'm kind of a sucker for miniature crafts in general, but this is GREAT. do you plan to split it up into jewelry or keep it together?

Ooo, I love this idea!

This set is going to be split up, just because I really want a pair of cheesecake earrings! But now I want to make a set for either one charm bracelet or a set of them.

I do like it. My favorite is the teeny bitsy strawberries Smiley
Suggestions, you should try to make the strawberry glaze more translucent, or give it more body, it sort of looks a bit bloody being so saturated!
And there are many ways to texture your clay, I think you chose a good method to use for a cheesecake texture. Texturing regular cakes is even more fun, by using either a special tool that looks kind of like a brush but with wires, or simply use a toothpick to poke the clay and tease it out a bit in little circles.
