What a sweetheart!
"Little Lulu" is the lastest of my creations. I finished her up last night in-between housework, dinner and working on another miniature cake.
She is made from mohair that I hand-dyed rosy pink and spring green.
Her pretty colors remind me of spring. I am in serious need of some warmer weather!

This is only my second wedding cake and I still need more practice perfecting the details.
I used to decorate wedding cakes many years ago. I prefer making these tiny ones for my Le Petit Bakery so much more....less mess.
The separator pillars are Dum Dum sucker sticks. Most of the work was done with my tiny round, flower and heart cutters. For the lace, I pressed a piece of lace into the clay. I need to work on that technique more.
Until I make my next cake, this one will go in the front window of my bakery.
Some of my favorite cakes are from Blue Kitty Miniatures on Etsy, Miniatures by Rachel on Etsy, and Kim's Miniatures.
Through the window you can see a rose garden in full bloom.
I have added two photos of my children when they were little as well as a tiny seashell that my daughter found for me.
The quilt was scanned and printed on fabric. Then I lined and backed it. It drapes out of the toy box.
This room box incorporates so many of the things that I love, teddy bears, dolls, my children of course, roses, quilts, and pretty things. I guess I need to put a picture of my husband in there somewhere!
