A little more work with some cherries and blueberries

Okay well I have 2 more days and then me and the girls hit the road for our trip to Oregon. I can't wait. We have never been. I will be doing a mini show there so wish me luck. I have only done local shows in the past so this is something totally new for me. Sorry I don't have time to show much of what I have been working on. I did make these cherry and blueberry cobblers the other day. I had fun with them.. I really enjoy the cherry and blueberry baked things. Something different from my usual chocolate love.Of course I had to throw in a pic of some chocolate chip cookies too. I have made so many of those lately. I really could use some real ones soon. I have taken lots of pictures to share and I promise as soon as I have time I will. Off to do more packing. Mini hugs!

Sunday and some macarons.......

Well this post was supposed to happen yesterday which was actually Sunday but had some computer issues. So today I will share Sunday's treat. Went to the dollhouse store with hubby for some supplies and on the way back we found this wonderful little cafe and bakery. I had to get the macarons. The pink one is raspberry and the yellow was lemon. What a treat. I will be going back soon. There was so many other things I wanted to try. What inspiration for miniature foods in this wonderful place. I think I gained 20 pounds just looking at it all.
In my mini world I made some muffins in baskets and a Lemon poppy seed bundt.
Working on the miniature bakery I hope to be able to share soon. Mini hugs!

The bundt cakes are keeping me busy....

The bundt cake (n) a ring shaped cake baked in a tube like pan that has fluted sides. Okay so I thought I might find a better meaning than this but thats what I found. I have been really having fun with the bundt cakes. I really enjoy the way they look. They are a favorite of mine in real life too! Thought I would share some pictures of just some of what I have been working on.
Dog is better, kids are better, hubby goes back to work after his week off at home with me Lol I should have a very productive week coming up. At least one can hope. Off to play with clay and watch the food network. I'm happy today. Mini hugs!

If life were a bowl of cherries......

I have gotten so behind on my blogging these days. Sorry about that. We had the start of school, a sick little dog, and then my son got the nasty flu. Missed a week of school already. Things seem to be getting back to normal here. I thought I would share todays project. A bowl of cherries. Would you believe me if I told you these little buggers took me most of the day? I think I can say I'm happy with them now. They will be traveling to France tomorrow along with some other fun creations. I have been busy. Can't even find my kitchen counter Lol. Hope all is well and we are all finding some mini time. My time is up! Off to pick up the kids, laundry, dinner but at least I finished the bowl of cherries. Mini hugs!
