more 1-12 marie antoinette inspired desserts

made these a while back when i was making the valentine day cupcakes, but since they were intended for my personal use, i felt no pressure to take pictures :P

 and so, they sat on my table gathering dust.....eww dusty food XD

 the madeleines i made even longer time ago, i don't recall taking pics of these new 1:12 ones. made them alongside my earrings in the previous post.....again, no pressing desire to take photos when i make stuff for myself  :-/ does that happen to you too?

 pulled out super old eclairs, looking at them now, i'm totally dissatisfied XD i have new ones made, but since they aren't finished yet (no chocolate topping) i didn't bother using them for this shoot.

frankly, i was looking to finish up the polymer clay/liquid polymer clay mix 'cream' for the cupcakes i'd made. piping in mini is so appealing to me, just can't imagine eating all that cream *bleargh* even when i was a kid, i'd ignore the cream on the cake, which adults back then told me was strange for a child. i just don't like the texture in my mouth. in general, i tend to avoid 'fuwa fuwa' (mushy, soft, fluffy) foods. thank goodness or i'd be the size of stay puft marshmallow man (the godzilla sized version in ghostbusters LOL).

oh oh i just remembered, some of you have asked about the piping nozzles, i did mention them here:
and previous attempts at piping with ADC here:

a side note, you can click on "All my experiments" in the section "Tags and Stuff" to the right of my blog to read about many of my techniques. if i do not share my technique, it means i think they're common knowledge which can be found via Google. or feel uncomfortable sharing because i had previously read them from some books, or online tutorials that i cannot recall the title/links to. or saving it for the "book-that-i-hope-to-but-may-or-may-not-write" ;P

 i only took these pics because i had an email come in asking about marie antoinette inspired stuff, and what better motivation to show off what i'd already made? stuff this pic in my portfolio, woot woot!

 but, since i'm so lousy at putting stuff together and my little display was meant to photograph individual items for sale, it's hard to cram stuff into a pic without looking too cramped. meh.

but until my purchases arrive, i will have to make do with some old crappy stuff i made earlier. this is my new fave display stand. gonna use it as often as i can :P

the choc cake is supposed to be 2 individual layers, but i got tired of looking for appropriate plates to display them on individually, thank goodness they look pretty good together :P

disjointed post, cos i'm feeling really 'off'. the shops should be open after the CNY holidays, i honestly feel too fatigued to go out, am hoping that a little activity can lift my spirits. have a good weekend everyone :)


  1. El conjunto se ve precioso. Tanta variedad de dulces, se hace la boca agua.

  2. Your creamy cakes are world class and your piping bar none! I like that stand too!

    Poor you, still feeling lousy? I am going to try doing some brisk walking tomorrow. Am feeling a little lethargic myself. Glad I stayed home today.

  3. All your food looked amazing delicious...wonderful Cindy! Happy CNY to you and your family :))

  4. Oh oh!! It´s a problem to see your blog when it's coffe time...Fantastic. Kisses from Spain.


Thank you for taking the time out to comment! :D
