This is my personal set :) the one in my hand was taken before it was glued on, i decided to just affix it after the cookies kept shifting while i was trying to take a decent pic of it XD and since i love it so much, it's mine! mine! all mine!!! :D
i've listed the rest on Etsy and Zibbet :)
oooo and yes, i've finally listed something in playscale/YoSD :)
aaaaand...here's a group shot!
Ann hee :X
ok! enough of the promo stuff!!!
.....if you haven't already noticed it......
http://www.cakejournal.com/, she not only does beautiful work, she's super generous as well! there's tonnes of tutorials for real life cake decorating techniques, and recipes too!
you can probably tell, piping is not easy! i've blogged before here how i do it.....i keep hoping someone out there can show me an easier way to achieve the same results but...i guess i'll have to keep doing it the messy way for now.....T-T
......which kinda looks odd even for 1:3. :( NO MATTER. i've been meaning to make some jewellery anyway, so it'll go into my stash of cutters :D
old post where i talked about how i made the cutters. instead of pie tin for the larger ones, i used 0.5mm aluminum sheets i got from the art supplies store.
see the largest one on the left? T-T haha. anyway, i made a new and i -think- better next to it. the cookies are waiting to be piped now...the cookies take 3 baking times. the first for the shapes + pastel shadings, 2nd for the 'frosting/flooding' and the 3rd for the piping. i really can't see any way around it to get the results i want. :( am i being too fussy??? the answer probably is YES *cries even harder* I'm SORREEEEE!~~~ *whiny high pitch* hahaha *winks at Steph and Susan*
i don't use any template and simply 'freestyle' it with round-nosed pliers....but cos i 'stalk' Rosey Sugar too, she recently linked to a japanese tutorial that showed how to make your own cutters!!!
i guess if i could draw (*CRIES AGAIN*) i would be able to do better with a template and not waste so much material.....so for those who are interested perhaps you could check out the above links for more inspiration :)
=====PERSONAL STUFF PLEASE SKIP IF YOU DON'T LIKE MY WHINGING=====
gosh this has been a whiny post. PHEW! i needed to vent! well, for the past few months, i've been feeling rather poorly, and the doc has figured out why. i am now on diabetes AND cholesterol meds, so it seems my kidneys and liver are...uh....not that of a 34-year old woman. my sedentary lifestyle and poor eating habits probably has something to do with it too....i'm gonna try and get back to my swimming regime now that the meds are supposed to help with the fatigue, but only after i get over the giddiness and nausea that seems to be side effects of the meds. i'm trying not to think about it and focus on my minis, and setting up a better eating/exercise schedule. i'm looking forward to swimming again, the weather's been so good for it lately!! :D :D :D
i always feel so grateful for having discovered minis, and the places it has taken me :) thank you all for being a part of it ^ ^ *warm fuzzy feelingss* haha omg i'm so mushy today......
p.s. yes, i made the white plastic displays as well :)
