My First 1:48th Scale Cake!

After years of making 1:12th, 1:24th and some 1:6th scale cakes now, it's time for 1:48th.

I gave it a try last weekend and found out the complications of making such a tiny cake. I made a chocolate layered cake covered with white cream and decorated with tiny strawberries. It came out not so bad for the first try. LOL The cake diameter is just ~1/4" (~6.5 mm). Isn't it small enough? However, I made a calculation. Diameter for quarter scale cake supposed to be around 3/16" (~5 mm max.). Argggggggg!

Anyway…I already prepared for a second one! :D

It is so darling! There is so much detail, did you use a magnifying glass?

Thank you! :) 1:48th scale cake is my newest project and it's something to try. I found out making 1:48th scale cake is quite fun. :D

@~stella, I did not use magnifying glass (yet). It's not that small. LOL I'm thinking about making teeny, tiny flower, I may need a magnifying glass for that. Let's see. :)
