Making Dollhouse Miniature Food From Polymer Clay With Crown Jewel Miniatures
Puff pastry cakes!
Last spring I set out to create an original, rustic pastry. My only criteria was to make it look rather messy- homemade. We are spoiled with an abundant selection of “perfect” bakery goods on the miniature market but some seem out of place in the homey miniature kitchen scenes we all love so much.
Mini kitchens should be crammed with food and accessories that match the style and era of the house. If you would not put a carton of milk in a period farmhouse why put cake pops in a Victorian bakery?
Let’s face it, the Tudors did not eat spaghetti. 😛
These little charmers are a cross between crepes and phyllo and I did my best to make them rustic and versatile too. Some are slightly lopsided with smears of fruit juice, and inconsistent piping. Some look delicious on plates and bakery cards and others make the grade on elegant cake pedestals. Phyllo dough dates back to the 17th century making them believable in several eras.
Best of all they’re fun and homemade and come from my mini kitchen to yours baked with love. Look for them soon in my Etsy shop and eBay!
