I saw so many wonderful things made of polymer clay here on Craftster that I had to give it a try, too.
Here is the result:

Some closeups:

(Now that I pay attention to it, those have to be some veeeery big strawberries if compared to the orange slices...  Embarrassed Oh, well.)

The smaller, the cuter  Smiley

Aaaand one last group shot

Actually I am not sure what to make of them.. maybe stitch markers or keyrings?
Sorry for the photo overload, C&Cs extremely welcome!
Thanks for looking!

Everything is so adorable!
I love that the color of everything is so realistic.  I know I'd have a hard time with it, especially the croissant!

These are fantastic! I can't believe this was your first attempt. My first attempt wasn't even half as good as yours!

omg they're so cute!  I love the detail on the cake!  You could do so much with those: make a cute charm bracelet, cell phone charm, pendant, zipper pull or purse charm, bookmark....

Those look so cute and tasty, mmmmmm.

When in doubt, use more glue!

Yes, they do look very tastey!!  I love them and you did a great job with them!  I wish my polymer clay ventures were this good.  I'm always amazed at people's skills with clay!  I LOVE IT!!!  Grin

trebleclef: I got the colors just by mixing different colored clay, except for the croissants. They are actually the same color of the cookies, I used powdered soft pastels and a soft paintbrush to give them a more "baked" look, just like they do in this tutorial i found: http://www.cdhm.org/tutorials/learn-to-make-miniature-bread.html
