Chocolate Boxes vs Box of Chocolates

Tadaaaa!!! My very first chocolate box with pralines. I tried paper box but, seem that I need more time for tiny paper boxes. lol After some mistakes and unsatisfied results of mini-paper boxes I gave up (for the moment) and gave it a tried on lay box instead. Was not bad, I think (the round one in front). :) So, I tried heart and hexagonal shape. Wish the chocolates are edible. *bite* *bite* *bite*

Things to try out though. Happy holiday, merry Christmas and happy new year! :)

*blush* I know that you knew it even before I started this blog entry...

I really like this pair of earring, I like the vintage look of copper wire and color combination of chocolate cupcake and the yellow flower.

Sending you a tiny 'pretty' feeling...

Sweet Treats

I got up with something new in my head (yet I'm still in cupcake mood). :P

I decided to try a macaroon preparation board, seem that there is not enough space for what I had in mind. lol So, I made it a prep board with 4 different types of baked macaroon cookie in cream filling process. These tiny things took me from 8 am. to 3 pm. to get them all done, working with air dry clay takes time... I like the cookie edge effect though. :)

I'm thinking about changing the cream disk. Not quite 'right' for me. Any suggestion?

Last Minute Christmas!

Is it? Nah.... Still in time. :)

This prep. board contain loads of Christmas candy ready to be used as cupcake decoration for the coming holiday party and family reunion.

It's fun to make things different. Not easy sometimes but, fun. You can feel it in your heart...

Happy Holiday,
Rachel *^^*

The Bouquet Cake...

It might be the weather...

I made this cake intended to make it as a combination of cake and a flower bouquet
. I used to make a cake represented a 'dinner table for our first dating', like it so much... And this cake is something for special occasion as if 'he' came to your door, ring the bell with flower bouquet in his arm waiting for the door to open...

My New Cupcakes and Blog Award

O.K., still in my cupcake obsession mood! :D Yesterday I made this prep. board. It's a fruit cupcake prep. board. I made flower cupcakes for the other prep. board and it's sold out and I still enjoy making cupcake and wanted to make something else different. I also made green tea cupcake which (I think) made the prep. board more colorful.

After taking picture of the prep. board, I found out that the best spot in the picture I like is the left up corner where the 3 ready made cupcakes are (looks festive-IMHO). Wanna give them a bite or two... *blush*

I received a nice surprise blog award from Staphanie (Petit Plat by sk) the other day and had problem to pass this award to miniaturist/artisan I admire. I admire many of them and it's difficult to make 6 out of all, I like Stephanie's works but, I can't pass this award back to her (or can I?). After a while I figured out that some of them are already awarded, feel relieve now. *^^*

Here are 6 dollhouse/doll/miniature artisans whom I would like to pass this blog award to:

1. Casey's Minis by Casey
2. Petite Framboise by Joana
3. Kay's 9ks by K. Stahler
4. .:minicaretti:. by Marcella
5. Dollhouse by Sumaiya Mehreen
6. Little Treasure by
Christel Jensen

Please pass this award to another 6 people. :)

Making Pie...

Between cupcakes I made a pie preparation board. And yes, making pie not baking pie. :P Was thinking about some certain type of pie for the prep. board but, I finally changed my mind. It's more fun letting others use their imagination. One may like blueberry-lemon cream pie while another would like it to be strawberry-banana or maybe other kind of pie. :)

After all, I wonder if I'm trying to make this a pie prep. board or a cheese cake prep. board... hm... :P
