Cotton Candy

There's just something so good about the way cotton candy just melts in your mouth! Some people hate it, but some people love it. And let's face it: anything looks terribly cute in miniature!

Here are a few generous servings of fluffly pink cotton candy. I feel like I should be at an amusement park or a carnival because I'm surrounded by such tasty, sugary fluffiness.

It was extremely difficult to get these photo shots of the cotton candy... I believe our camera is close to death. The last thing I need right now is for that camera to die on me completely.

What Have We Here?

I've been experimenting with making miniature boxes lately... and the results actually haven't been too bad! There are several different designs that I have created, but I'll save those for another time. Here is a box that I filled with a few donuts. This box isn't intended to store donuts, but I just wanted to take a few pictures with something inside of the box.

Something Old

A little while ago, I was sorting through various boxes which contain my miniatures, and I came across this wedding cake that has never been published on my blog. I thought it was worth sharing, since I'm still working on getting back to mini-making after surgery.

This wedding cake has four layers with pink and red roses cascading down the side. There are also some green fondant leaves to add an extra touch.

I've often mentioned how much I love making cakes. It's always a challenge creating new designs. My mind is always buzzing with new ideas, and I'm very anxious to start improving my wedding cakes!

It's the Fourth of July!

Happy Fourth of July!! This is one of my favorite times of the year, for sure! Independence Day might very well be my favorite holiday, for many reasons. There is so much to be grateful for, especially our troops!

Days before my surgery, I was able to very quickly make a few Fourth of July minis to share with you today. I just couldn't let this holiday pass without some patriotic miniatures! Hopefully next year I will have more Independence Day miniatures to share than I do today.

Once again, Happy Fourth of July! Please enjoy the cookies, lollipops, and cake!
