My Very First Miniature Cakes

I really have no real idea why I started making my very first miniature cakes as 3-tier wedding cakes which, seen from now, is more complicate than 1-tier cake...

My first cakes were white cream 3-tier wedding cake decorated with chocolate flowers, 3-tier chocolate cake in flower petal shaped decorated with colorful roses and the third one was a 2-tier chocolate cake in heart shaped decorated with leaves and tiny flowers. I do not have pictures of these cakes any longer. But, they are in my heart. I still remember those time of difficulties with trial and error of 'learning by doing' as if it was just happened...

All cakes I made are out of my own custom design inspired by real cakes and flower bouquets. I enjoy making chocolate cake and chocolate cake with colorful topping/decoration.

Strange thing is after these 3-tier cakes, I, then, made 1:24th scale cakes. At that time I do not know about scales. I only know that those I bought and collect are rather too big and need space which I do not have that plenty. Therefore, I just grab a color pen cap and started to punch the cake body out and decorated them with my tiny, handmade flowers (yes, they were mostly flowered cakes).

Later on, I realized that I have big and small hand day. Some days I just can't make things small and other days I simply can only make tiny stuff...
