Sponge cake

This sponge cake is the most simple and the most complicated one at the same time I've ever made. At first I design the paper pieces of the cake pan on my computer, then plotted them in the correct scale. That was the time when I got shocked realizing how tiny these pieces are! Bot I'm not the type giving in and the result was worth all the efforts and time. 
Let me introduce you my little sponge cake just from the oven. The frame even burnt my finger!

Apricot cake

The spring frost killed all the apricot flowers in my garden, and all over Hungary too. Now the apricot is the most expensive fruit on the markets, it's almost luxury! So the real apricot cake remains only a sweet dream, but fortunetaly I can make it in miniature. I covered the cake with almond slices and powdered sugar. Now I have to eat some sweet, anything...

In bread making mood

Inspired by the breads with lettering about what I posted a few days ago, today I made only various breads and other bakery goods and placed them nicely into a rectangular wicker basket. I think there is no room even for one little croissant in the basket. But in this case the fullness is not reprehensible at all.

Vanity table

First of all I would like to thanks all those very useful tips about fake mirrors you left a few week ago for me. Since then I  got mirrored acrylic sheets I need to make one of my old plans, a vanity table. Of course in shabby shic style, again. All the drawers work, I used metal beads and wires, some black and copper paint for the drawer pulls. I lined their interiors with lovely green floral patterned paper.

Breads with lettering

In the last two weekes I worked mostly with paper and wood. It's so sweltering hot here the fimo is melting in my hands and my brain is boiling, too. I try to postponed the clay works but I can't wait any more.
This was my first attempt to make breads with lettering on them. The first photo is about the original bread a kind lady asked me to make in 1:12. As I saw the photo I wasn't sure I would be succesful with the lettering. The only method that worked at last was the handpainting with a pin. I had to print the label with the frame to help me to place the letters correctly.
You can see the result on the second photo. The bread pack on the last one is another ask inspired by the first type with the BEAN & BELUGA sign.
