Chocolate Chip Cookie Prep Board from my stream last night.
I had a lot of fun making this one. The silver bowl is something I put together with a small plastic container that was cut down and painted with metallic paint. The cup…is not permanent. It melted in the oven and I had to even out the top (which is why the milk inside is a little higher than the cup). I just threw it in for the picture but I’ll be redoing the cup today.
The raw eggs are just there so I’d have an excuse to try out using scenic water. It was a success, even though it left a very strange bubble as it dried. I’ll be experimenting with tinting it when I make soup next.
I’m selling this not put together. I’ve left it loose so whoever buys it gets to put it together however they want (or leave it loose).
Taking this to the indie craft fair I’m going to in a couple of weeks. :)
I had it get into my head that I wanted to take the tiramisu I made and turn it into a prep board of sorts. I wanted to be able to show the bakery owners that I could do more than charms and mini plates.
I took the tiramisu I made and added a bowl of raspberries, a bowl of whipped cream, and an individual slice or tiramisu.
First time making utensils; let me know how they turned out! :)
Made some tiny pastries on my live stream last night - eclairs, cream puffs, and a napoleon (which needs some work).
This is still really a work in progress; they need to go into a tiny pastry box I need to print out and assemble. Unfortunately our printer is broken so I need to head out to my parents’ house and borrow theirs to finish this.
The miniature pastry box will be part of what I bring to my interview this week at an Italian pastry shop in Boca. The owner seems interested in my work and might commission me to do some work for them up there, plus maybe sell some of my items in their shop as well.
Second part of the ice cream tutorial. This shows how I make both my soft serve and ice cream scoops.
The way I make my soft serve is also the way I did my icing on the cupcakes. :)

Finished my pastry box!
I’d link the template for the box but it was pretty awful. The two halves are the same size, so they don’t really fit together like they should. And parts of it are way off so it won’t fit together well. :/
At least it looks decent enough to take with me this week. I really want to do more of these for rings and magnets, pins, too, maybe.
Planning on doing a set of Retro TV dinners. This Salisbury steak dinner is the first of that set.
Salisbury steak smothered in gravy with a side of corn, a side of mashed potatoes and gravy, plus a brownie for dessert.
The tray needs a little work (it’s scrap clay covered in tin foil) but that will come with practice.
A large slice of warm Razzleberry pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Birthday gift for my mom. :)
I love this pie. It’s a mix of three or four different berries in a super flaky pie crust. Whenever we went to Marie Callender’s for dinner, this was what my mom always ordered for dessert. Unfortunately there are no Marie Callender’s where we moved, so we settle for the frozen version now instead.
A tiny plate of my favorite IHOP breakfast - Pigs in a Blanket.
I have such a craving for this now. >.<
Pancakes are a bit too flat around the edges so I’ll have to watch out for that next time.
I am not going to be posting at all this weekend (I think) since the convention starts tomorrow (omgaaaaawd I’m not ready D:). I’ll have pictures of my setup and maybe of stuff I do on commission there.
Have a great weekend all! :3
More cupcake practice.
These are a bit bigger, but they look better than the last attempt at least.
The three in the back still need to be frosted. I have no idea what I’m doing with these since I forgot to put in eyepins. >.< Probably will end up in my cabochon box for the convention.
