Chocolate Banana Cake

Do you like chocolate? Do you like bananas? Do you like when bananas and chocolate are combined? If so, then here is a new cake that I designed just for you to satisfy all your banana-chocolate cravings. Even if you don't enjoy this flavor combination, I hope you'll enjoy the pictures! The doily measures 1 inch in diameter.

Swap with TreeFeathers

I recently had the pleasure of swapping miniatures with Grace from TreeFeathers! This was my first swap, and it was a very fun and exciting experience. I was absolutely thrilled when I received her miniature books in the mail! In fact, I could barely keep my eyes off the teeny little books.

Pictures do no justice to these fantastic minis. You wouldn't believe how clear and colorful the book covers are. Each book is perfect and slender. I'm so excited to actually own this 12 volume Andrew Lang collection, and also the extra Lang book "The Princess Nobody!" Thank you, Grace!! I've given up picking a favorite.

I'm speechless.

In love!

Grace was so sweet to also give me "The Princess Nobody" and a rose! So beautiful.

There is color everywhere!

Soft Pretzels & Tacos

I find that soft pretzels and tacos "hit the spot" when I need it most. Although they are not similar to each other at all, I've decided to combine the pictures of soft pretzel and taco earrings into one blog post.

While I was at it, I made two pairs of soft pretzel earrings. Well, I've decided to keep a pair for myself. After all, since I make food jewelry, I should have a collection of it myself (that's my excuse anyway--haha).

This past Saturday I had the pleasure of performing with my dance group in our city's St. Patrick's Day Parade. Since I do Irish step dancing, March is our busiest month of the year for performances (due to St. Patrick's Day). I just love this time of year! I'll still be working on my miniatures here and there in between performances and the rest of my life though. All the same, I always have lots to share in the coming weeks!

Two sets of soft pretzels earrings.. I can taste them now!

Taco earrings, complete with flavored ground meat, crunchy lettuce, diced tomatoes, shredded cheese, and blobs of sour cream.

Classic Carrot Cake

It is always difficult for me to keep carrot cake stocked! People seem to enjoy it no matter the season. It is currently one of my most popular items.

Although some of you have already seen this cake before, I wanted to dedicate a post exclusively to my classic carrot cake.

Easter couldn't come soon enough!

The gold doily measures 1 inch diameter.

On my fingertip.

Shish Kabob

It occurred to me not too long ago that shish kabobs would look fantastic in miniature. At last I've made a set of two shish kabobs which are loaded with very juicy foods. Care to join me for a cookout? Summer is right around the corner after all! We all experience how time flies.

A penny is used to depict how small these are.

At another angle...

Surprise!! I made these little shish kabobs into earrings! I have such a soft spot for earrings, especially dangly ones.. :)

Wedding Bells

I have finally returned after over a week of absence from posting. Things have been busy, but I was able to meet newborn Catherine this past weekend!

Currently I'm working on new miniatures (which are unfinished), and I don't want to share them until they are complete. Until then, I've decided to share my Wedding Bells design. This was my first attempt at a Victorian era wedding dress, and it was completely designed by me. I created this quite some time ago.

Time to work on some new miniatures now.
Please enjoy the dress in the meantime! :)

This is the bottom of the dress. If you look closely, you will see a unique snowflake design on the white fabric. Perfect touch for a wedding dress.

A little bit closer..
