Cakes and Pastries again

 1:3 marie antoinette inspired pastries such as st honore, l'ispahan, macarons, madeleines, creamy strawberry cake slices. mostly done with air dry clay.

the roses are supposed to be Rakugan, but i haven't created the packaging, and since the colours fit in with the theme....why not eh? :D
although i prefer working with polymer clay, air dry clay certainly is better for 'mass production' as i don't have to condition, nor limit my batches to space in the oven, and it's much much lighter, which is a huuuge bonus in the larger scales. but of course, there are limitations, and i'm still learning as i go along.

although these i find aren't as pretty as the marie antoinette inspired stuff, i consider them classics too :) when i was (much)younger, blackforest cake was my favourite flavour (i'd eat everything but the cream lol). i've been craving it ever since i started production on these....haven't gotten round to it yet though :( 

i have more donuts to frost, i think i'm done with the sprinkle designs, on to the choco art ones, which are quite hard to do now that i've switched to air dry options and can't get my hands on liquid sukerukun :( :( :(
i recently also purchased some dessert towers from Carol of true2scale. I LOVE THEM SO MUCH. you probably have noticed the 1:3 version in earlier pics, tee hee she made them specially to my request ^ ^ thank you Carol! I LOVE THEM! they're SOOO fun and addictive and EASY to assemble. managed to plonk these 3 out in less than 1/2 hr! i definitely plan on getting more :) you can find them at her etsy store too . HIGHLY RECOMMEND A*********************** (lol ebay much? XD)

here's how they look unstacked and with some of my older stuff. i plan to list some of these items soon, need to take individual pics again cos i forgot to check for lint/dust when i did the earlier photoshoot. WAHHHH the lighting and everything looked so good too, dang it my room is too dusty!!!!

ok. i do apologize if i miss any of your comments/requests etc or am late with replies to emails. been busy, as you can tell :X there's a tonne more WIPs littered about my room, but since TDA is in less than 3 weeks, i think it's best i finish them ASAP (ADC takes quite a while to dry in 1:3 T-T) i promise i'll reply when i can!!! even my virtual farms have been somewhat neglected, OMG OMG OMG OMG

 toast + butter + honey = BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. oh Alison, you are so right, i brought my camera but the time went by so fast, had no time to even use my own camera, had no chance to visit the booths nor view the photo competition exhibits, thinking back i feel so sore about that, i will have to rely on others' pics!!! T-T
