Valentine’s weekend left me with a full heart and chocolate withdrawal.
The only way to get my fix was to make some donuts. It didn’t matter that they weren’t edible, they were still satisfying.
The weekend allowed us to put together a small light box from a wooden frame and vellum panels. Until I get a micro lens to shoot my miniatures, this will do in a pinch.
While I was doing that, I lost my favorite baking tile. My fault. I didn’t put it away and it was nudged to it’s death by one of my girls (I won’t say WHO but anyone who knows my family will probably guess correctly). It’s no biggie…I will use what is left of it, until I find another magical tile…
I made a lot of chocolate and mocha donuts and macarons, in various scales. And you can spot my favourite donut: the walnut crunch. Those nut pieces were from tiny walnut chunks that I formed from polymer clay. I made them fairly realistic…then chopped them up like a crazy person.
I purchased some cute donut boxes from my favourite miniature food artist. Her name is Cindy Teh, from Singapore. She goes by Snowfern online. Her boxes are available for download (for personal use) in her Etsy shop.
