Miniature Patisserie Chef | Dollhouse Miniatures, Miniature Food Jewelry,..
I’m Pei Li, an aspiring dollhouse miniatures artisan. As a young child, I have always been interested in crafts. When I started attending some clay classes locally and overseas several years ago, it ignited my passion to seek and learn more, especially in making 1:12 scale dollhouse miniatures. A dollhouse miniatures blog specializing in air dry clay, dollhouse miniature food and flowers.
Hello world! I'm back and am glad to be able to show you this new dollhouse miniature oval lace cake stand that I made recently. You know how much I'm into cake stands, and I've been making my own for a while. Though the common ones are round in shape, I chanced upon these lovely oval plates and knew they would look gorgeous as cake stands as well.
I love the intricate lace edges around the plate that really brings out its beauty. I also lightly distressed it so the lace edges are more prominent.
An obligatory shot of the oval lace tray with my fingers holding onto it. The tray is 3cm wide. Perfect for 1/12 dollhouse miniature scale usage!
Some happy news: My mom has been accepted into a clinical trial and she started her trial chemo just last week. So far she's coping well, the side effects are very minimal and that's really good. I think medical advances have improved by leaps and bounds over the years, and the newer chemotherapy drugs are no longer like how it used to be in the past where severe side effects go along with it. This is a vast improvement. Just hoping that there is some positive results from this trial. Meanwhile, let me get back to sanding some tea carts. :)
I made these dollhouse miniature flora round victorian gift boxes lately. These aren't new designs, but I always make a few little differences to each piece I make.
I've recently also changed my printer as the old one went kaput. With the new printer installed, I realized that the prints are still a little different, when it comes to color. The new one prints softer color, which actually works to my favour :)
Added a pink rose and brighter pink ribbon to this soft ensemble.
In other news, my mom's disease has progressed, and she's currently awaiting to enter a clinical trial. This means more hospital visits on our end. I'm pretty quiet on social media these days, but I do post when I have new photos to share. I'm still checking and replying emails daily and do accept custom orders. I've currently completed one order and will resume working on a longer custom order which I have been working on and off. I'm so grateful to all of you who are so patient, and am always willing to wait for me to complete working on your orders. If you see anything that you'd like me to make but is out of stock, please email me instead. Thank you all so much for your patience and understanding.
Hi everyone, finally I have another piece of work completed, in between the other customised projects going on. This has taken quite a while to complete, but I'm glad I managed to as all the other trio romantic cakes in my shop has been sold quite a while ago. I have always wanted to restock some. I have more ideas in mind!
These romantic pink peonies mini cakes have a pop of lovely sweet pink color in the center of the flower.
Do you also see the layered cake in the background? I'm still trying to complete the cake stand before listing it ^^ It's also another popular cake that has been sold out.
The cake is about 1.6cm tall. Width is 1.2cm at most.
I'm so pleased how they turned out. I'm still figuring out the whole photography situation. I took these photos at 3pm, where the sun was really bright. I thought I would have really bad ugly shadows, which would be the case at my old house. I'm very surprised these turned out OK. I'm not sure if it means 3pm is now my ideal timing to take photographs, but I'll try again next time.
The macaron tower in the background is a custom work for a client and is still a work in progress...I'll take more photos once I complete that!
The pink macaron towers are always very popular. While making these, I thought of making blue macaron towers, which I've never attempted. I wonder if they would be as popular.
And here's another picture of it on the 3cm cake stand. It makes it look really grand. I'll have to restock those 3cm cake stands again soon!
Hi everyone! I'm back :) It has been a week since my Macbook was brought in for a battery replacement. During this time, I had been busy working on custom orders. I also had some time to work on this pot of dollhouse miniature anemones flower.
It has been a while since I made anemones flower, so it was refreshing to see how I would change their "looks". This time round, I made the petals more "open".
I completed this pot of dollhouse miniature pink gerbera daisies yesterday. :) I'm loving the curls of the tiny ribbon on this. Every pot that I make is different, since I can't control how the ribbon curl would turn out.
I'm also loving the white and blue tile background. I think it's the first time I'm using that for my photographs.
On another separate note, I'll have to send in my Macbook for screen replacement. I'm seeing horizontal lines on my screen, and the technician said it was a hardware issue, so that would have to be fixed at the repair centre. Which also means, no computer for 3-5 business days....I'll survive....
Happy new year's eve everyone! It's still officially 31 Dec as I write this blog post :) 2018 went by so quickly. Lots of changes on my end this year...from moving house (which was a big one and it took a lot of time and energy) to finding a new work schedule to fit in all of the caregiving duties and hospital visits. I'm still figuring things out honestly.
Some work in progress...
It's been a while since I made larger flower arrangements and I surprised myself that I could find the energy to make these few stalks of flowers during the quiet holidays.
Whilst making those peonies, I decided to offer them on a per stalk basis, so if you're interested to get some, please head HERE. It will be for a limited time only WHILE I still have this colored clay. All my colors are handmixed, so if that particular shade is gone, I will move onto the next color.
Here's wishing all a Happy 2019 and may you have a wonderful year ahead!
