Very Strawberry

Strawberry is a popular fruit for miniature cake and pastry decoration, whole fruit and sliced. The strawberry is also used as a symbolic of heart and love, due to its heart-like shape...

I used to make only whole fruit strawberry for my miniature and dreamed of sliced strawberry for my minis. I tried some experiments to get sliced strawberry. It was fun and frustrating at the same time. lol There were times that I did nothing else but fruit canes, piles of scrap clay all over and such time is still around...

And I got an order to make strawberry cakes, tarts and cupcakes. The condition was that the minis might have strawberry as one of the toppings and decorations. I have to admit that this order was a fun order to make. I had to stick with strawberry and vary other components to make all of them different with one thing in common, strawberry. They came out nicely.

Here are 4 of those from the order. Strawberry- kiwi-orange-banana Charlotte cake, strawberry-banana double chocolate cake, strawberry-kiwi tart and vanilla cream strawberry cake. These minis are in special 1:12th scale order, slightly bigger than regular 1:12th size. Don't they look yum? ;)

Thanks! :) These are air dry polymer clay miniatures and with no scented substance added. I wish there is any artificial baked pastry scented available to use with the clay though... :D
