Trout

I've probably said this before, but I'll say it again ;)
Fish and meat are some of my absolute favorite things to make in miniature. I personally find it a lot more interesting to make a roast in a pan, or a fish on a cutting board than making a cake with perfectly piped icing and whipped cream.. Must be my love for the rustic look.

Anyway - I had to pre-record some videos earlier this week before leaving to visit my parents.
One of them was for this trout;


It's been hard for me to keep my head up these last couple of days,. Diesel, one of my dwarf hamsters passed away the 24th.. The drive to my parents house was too much.. He's been on that drive before - but combined with the summer heat, it was just too much for him to take. When we finally arrived and I got him inside and put him into his cage, he was too weak. Jovo survived - she knew that it was best to lie still during the trip, using up as little energy as possible. I hate thinking about it, and I would do anything to turn back time.. Unfortunately, that's not an option.
What breaks my heart is that he wasn't old,. he wasn't sick,. it wasn't fair.. I feel horrible about it..
Life must go on, even if it hurts.
I  know some people don't get this - but to me a pet isn't just something you get or should get, if you don't care about it. A pet, or any animal for that matter is as important as any of your family members.

I am planning on getting another dwarf hamster, but I'll never forget Diesel or that final hour..

Sorry for ending the post on a rather depressing note.

Simplicity :)

Simplicity... I love making really simple things like this - taking something that looks rather plain in itself, and trying to make it look 'interesting' so to say.




Miniature chili peppers, grapes and baked cheesecake :)

All of them are uploaded on my youtube as tutorials (chili's will be uploaded in a couple of hours).

Bananas :)

I was making a new banana cane to use for miniature cakes etc, and since I never have the patience to texture that many slices, this is what I used part of the cane for;
A few bananas for yesterday's tutorial. The picture made the yellow look too bright, but I don't think I'm going take a new photo.
I did make a few more peeled bananas, so when I figure out what to do with them, I might be able to get a better picture of those. The camera probably couldn't handle all the yellow.

Let's just pretend the picture was taken on a really bright and sunny day! having no mention of the fact that the rain was pouring down most of the day yesterday...

I think they came out really cute though!


I'm hoping on being able to make a few more pieces of miniature food this weekend.
Really trying to get some done, so I don't end up being stressed out right before the next fair (October).
