Dan and I were brainstorming to make something fun and new for a Theme Luncheon gift At N.A.M.E. National in Charlotte last month and this is what we came up with. Dan did all the design and I the decorating. There are 25 cake houses all different and everyone was so much fun to make. In fact I couldn't stop! I wanted to add more and more and make so many more designs, which hopefully I'll get time to work on later. I've had a lot of requests for them to be available as kits, and yes they will.
Dan and I designed a brand new kit. It's the Cupcake Emporium. It's going to be loads of fun and come with everything you see in the picture! There will be the 5 kits to put together. The Bookshelf has cupcake cutout on the sides. All 3 table tops are made from acrylic. There will be dozens of doilies included. Also the kit comes with a complete cupcake mold making kit as well as all the bits a pieces that make all the cupcakes scene. Tutorials are included for hot to make cupcakes, roses, santa cupcakes, bunny cupcakes and scarecrow cupcakes.
The Great Falls Montana Miniature show is this weekend and I am busily getting ready for it. I'll be teaching a class as well. Please come of you get time and stop by. Here's the link to the info. Should be fun!
I just wanted to show my new cake. Finished it tonight and had so much fun making it. I had to make a bunch of molds to complete this one, but I can't wait to make more. This was a special order, A friend of mine went to a wedding her niece had and this was her wedding cake. I want to do many more of this style with some more color. Just exciting, I guess that's why I love miniatures! There's always something new to do!!
I just wanted to let everyone know I am teaching a cake class in Kirkland WA at The Dollhouse Cottage after the Seattle Miniature Show next month in March. The class will be March 5th, the Monday after the show, so plan to stay and PLAY!!!
I was so excited today to get my monthly American Miniaturist magazine in the mail today as I am in this issue! Martha Puff did a really nice feature on me and I did a tutorial on Snowman Soup! I was very excited to be published and hope everyone enjoys my tutorial. If you don't have a subscription please consider one. It's really fun to keep up to date on the miniature world!
Well I got back from the Portland show and was hit with orders. I finished the last one this morning!! It feels great to be caught up. All I have left is some special orders from Portland and then I hope to work on some new products and a tutorial. I've had a couple requests, but I am going to start with Melting Snow Man Cookies. I made these before the Denver show and they were a hit! I am very excited to share with you the in's and out's of making them.
Well here I am again headed to another Dollouse show. It will be first year at the Northwest Dollhouse show and I am excited! Always fun to do a new show and I love Portland. The first time I visited was on my honeymoon. We went to the zoo and that was a wonderful experience since it was my first time to a zoo. Then we went through a couple times on our way to the Oregon Coast to camp. 2 years ago we made a special trip to spend a couple days and went to Powells! Oh my!! If you love to read this huge bookstore is a must!
Just got some new mini creations done. A brand new Tiramisu, some pastry plates that are so yummy and 3 brand new supply plates. The plates have one of the beautiful laser cut doilies on them. A beautiful addition to your home or Bakery!
