A Few Seasonal Minis for Autumn

The fall is already here, so that means that Halloween is just around the corner too.  So, I decided it's time to release some fall-themed minis including a perky pumpkin board and a jack-o-lantern prep board!  Now available on Etsy

First Day of Autumn

The crisp autumn air is beginning to settle in.  Summer has ended so quickly!  But there's a lot to look forward to.  It's time to start making some autumn-themed minis, including miniature leaves!

Do you want to learn how to make these mini leaves?  Follow my tutorial!

Back to Prep Boards

Some time ago, I was commissioned to make a "cake pop prep board."  Well, until then, I had never heard of a cake pop before... if you haven't either (and if you're as curious as I was about cake pops), I explain the steps involved to make real cake pops in the captions below the pictures.  Note, however, that I have never made cake pops in real life, so my explanations might be faulty! ;)  It definitely turned out to make a unique prep board!

The prep board from a side angle!

Bake a cake and crumble the pieces using your hands.

Mix the crumbled cake bits with icing.  Roll into balls.
Insert (pop/sucker) sticks into cake balls.  Next, dip your pops into a bowl of frosting.
Leave to dry.  Drop a few purple speckles on top, if you want! 
And you're done!

Do You Spy the Fruit?

 Oh my!  I'm having the time of my life taking pictures of my miniatures beside the "real thing."  :)  I could just take pictures all day! 

Do you spy any mini fruits?

Tropical Pineapple

I just can't seem to escape making mini's quite an addiction. :)

So here is my first pineapple!  Pineapples definitely require a tedious and lengthy process, but the same goes for just about any miniature, doesn't it? 

It was great being able to play and "mess around" with this new type of fruit!

Available for sale on Etsy.
Happy Labor Day weekend to all!
