Getting ready for Easter

This adorable Easter basket just arrived in the mail today!
I ordered it from Jennifer Tuttle at Miniholiday on Etsy.

The quality basket is filled with a solid chocolate bunny, a bag of M&M's, a Hershey bar,
chick peeps, jelly beans, a lollipop, a sugar coated decorated egg, foil covered chocolates and a bunny topped candy dispenser. The basket is trimmed and topped with a bow of silk ribbon.

I also had to have the perfect frosted egg sugar cookies.

I plan to use these goodies in an Easter holiday display in my bakery.

Miniature swap

Look at the tiny details in this fantastic aquarium! I just love it!
Rhonda contacted me after seeing some of my cakes on my blog. We decided to do a swap. She made this adorable aquarium and sent it to me.

In return, I made her two beautiful cakes. One is dark chocolate with white chocolate accents. The second is a sweetheart rose cake.

Enjoy Rhonda!

Chocolate Temptation

This is a scene from my little bakery. The chocolate wedding cake was a special order from Blue Kitty Miniatures. I just had to have an all-chocolate wedding cake in my bakery.

The plate of candies and Valentine cookies I ordered from Sue's Little Things on Ebay. She makes such wonderful and detailed miniatures.

Valentine's Day Bake Table

This is a bake table that I made for my bakery for Valentine's Day.

For the last week, I have been playing with polymer clay making little cupcakes, candies and tarts. It is all trial and error for me. I threw away quite a few little cupcakes as I was having trouble frosting them without getting the frosting all over the bottom of the cupcake.

This dark chocolate heart shaped cake is topped with pretty roses. The candy in the dish is just little pieces of leftover clay.

I made the pretty white cake topped with roses yesterday. I tried to blend the clay to give the petals of the roses a variagated look.
I am having so much fun working on my bakery that I have been neglecting my actual "job" of making bears!
