I can not believe ... I am the first??? then, first of all I would tell you that your minis make me a lot of throat, so when I'm hungry always step from here and I console myself .. LOL! and then, for your give away, my favorite bakery is behind my house, and doing simple little bread crumb and crust crisp and fragrant, is gorgeous !!... and my favorite food is Italian pasta: spaghetti, tortellini, lasagna ... I can also do without eating meat or fruit, but the dough must not fail in my house ever!
indeed, I will leave the link in my blog of recipes, you never know you should come hungry ... it can also serve as an inspiration to you for your mini meals ...

Thanks Mandy! Good luck :)

Melissa Barnum said...

Our favorite bakery where we live is quite a jaunt, but SOOO tasty..... Their name is: Blackbird Bakery on Bainbridge Island. I am in love with ANYTHING they put their chocolate ganache on. Bill got me a birthday cake from there and the outer frosting was a milk chocolate ganache. It melted like butter in your mouth!! TO DIE FOR!! But I am a chocoholic!! Your pieces are like magic and I htink everyone loves them because they are so real, and so magical, and they just ransport you to a place that I cannot even describe! ;) I remember when you very first got started and am amazed by where you have gone with it.

Sumaiya Mehreen said...

Pick me! Pick me!!
:D
My favorite bakery here in Plano, TX, is the Mozart Bakery on Spring Creek & Custer (in case your readers want to go there) :) ... I love EVERYTHING they have, so it's hard to pick favorites. One of my favorites is their mango mousse. * droooooooool *

kimsminiatures said...

Thanks so much Melissa and Sumaiya. Both your favorite bakeries sound wonderful. Good luck girls!

Miniature Patisserie Chef said...

Hi Kim,

This is gorgeous!! Actually there are too many favourite bakery. Yesterday I went to a new one, and love it. TWG is the name of it. I picked a slice of chocolate cake, but also tested my friend's white chocolate cake. I think I like the white chocolate better, as it's not so sweet, and has a layer of raspberry mousse in it :) So I'll pick that the next time!

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

I only found your blog a couple of days ago. I enjoyed looking at your miniature goodies. You are very good. I've made some polymer food myself for my Ginny Dolls which is a larger scale (1:6), but never anything as good as what you've done. You're a pro!

I'd love to be in your drawing. I have a dollhouse (1:12 scale) and need some motivation to get it finished. (I started it in 1981.)

My favorite bakery...I guess I'll have to say The Cake Lady Bakery here in town. They have lots of good cookies and they'e all my favorite.

kimsminiatures said...

Welcome Betty. Thanks so much. Its never too late to finish that dollhouse. Glad you found my blog. Good luck! Hugs~ Kim

dale said...

Oh, this is fun! :)

MacMillan's is the best bakery in South Jersey and I love their cream filled donuts, they actually cut the donut in half and fill it with way too much cream. It's the best.

How sweet of you to do this. :)

Thank you, for offering us all a tasty treat. :)

kimsminiatures said...

Hi Dale, Thank you for your post. Filled donuts Yum....... Good luck! Hugs~ Kim

Thanks for your post Christina. Your favorite bakery sounds wonderful. I love carrot cake too! Good luck! Hugs~ Kim

Jill said...

My favorite bakery here in Sacramento was Phillips Bakery (On Folsom/33rd), but sadly it is gone now. Their little motto was "There's majic on the corner"... and it was magical.

Your corner cabinet filled with wonderful goodness would look perfect in The Little Pink House. I'm crossing my fingers :)

Jill said...

Oh! My favorite thing... the sugar cookies with royal icing-- great with a cup of coffee. Oh! Their strawberry cupcakes were wonderful too! Oh! And the...

Snowfern said...

ahh!!! i really wanna win! XD

i might have to make a trip down again soon....hrmmm

<3
Cindy

kimsminiatures said...

Thanks for your post Jill. It would look lovely in your wonderful dollhouse. Good luck! It is so sad when a good bakery goes away. Magic around the corner sounds perfect. Hugs~ Kim

Angela Schiavone said...

Hi, Kim! Wonderful work yet again! I like Nothing Bundt Cakes (www.nothingbundtcakes.com). Their carrot cake sure is yummy!!!

Keep up the amazing work! I always like to keep your blog opened on a tab in my web browser so I can look at it a lot. You're work is so inspiring! I hope I can get my work to be half as good as yours someday. I'm working on it. Thanks for the encouraging comments on my blog!

kimsminiatures said...

Carey said...

Hi Kim, How lovely of you to do this. My favorite bakery is "Butter Cookie Bakery" and there motto is "because butter is better." It is hard to pick a favorite thing but I guess it would be their whipped creme filled eclairs and lobster tails.
I love everything about your blog.

Mini Hugs,Carey

hannajaleijona said...

Oh wow, what a great gift you have made!

My favourite bakery was Sokerileipuri Suominen where you could have the most amazing mousse-cakes, but unfortunately they quit. Now it's Laurell and the humble potato-pastry I most often have.

Also I just want to tell that your creations are just mouth-watering and it is a pleasure to visit and see the detailed wonderful photos here. Thank you for keeping this blog!

Hanna

Lori said...

Love your creations Kim!!!
It's been years since I've been in a bakery and I can't even remember the name of one close by BUT I do love my own baking so that would be Lori's kitchen :)

rosanna said...

Eva said...

What a gift Kim! You are so geneous. Well, love your hutch so here I am.
One of my favourite bakeries (I have more than one) is in Barcelona (in the center of the city) and is called "Mistral". They make the most delicious mini croissants. Mini means that the croissants are maximum 3 cm lenght so you can eat a lot!!! They are filled with xocolate, cheese and ham, frankfurt, sobrasada (a special sausage from Balearian Islands) o the normal one. Delicious.
and my favourie cake is the Sacher tarte...I love chocolate!!
Good luck to everyone and thanks again Kim

TINK-SONIA said...

Kim I enjoy watching your little treats both as if I was eating.
In Madrid is a very popular pastry called "San Onofre" And there are sweet wonders, people come from all over Spain to buy their pastries. My favorites are the mini palm trees covered with chocolate puff pastry, only 5 cm but when I eat I think I gave him a bite of a piece of heaven.
A warm greeting, Sonia

Arantxa said...

marga said...

hi!
good morning!
thanks for the opportunity to participate in the contest!
my favorite bakery here in Mallorca, Spain, called C'an Joan of S'Aigo, its products are entirely "ours." It is a pastry-chocolate with more than 100 years and all their furniture reflects that

greetings

Bear cabin miniatures said...

Hi,
What a wonderful give-away, it is so pretty :0) We don't have many bakeries here, only pasty shops really, but I do like the fresh, hot bread from our local supermarkets fresh bread counter.
Julia xx

Mimmi said...

Wow, what a beautiful corner hutch! My favorite bakery is in Stavanger, the town next to ours. The bakery is called Le café Francais and I just love their chocolate mousse! Inside it there is a little bit of passionfruit gel. It was difficult to only pick one bakery and one favorite food item, I also love their crèpes and chocolate eclairs. But I am a true chocoholic, so I must say the mousse is my favorite ;-)

Kathi said...

I must say that YOUR bakery is wonderful! What a beautiful gift you have made!
My mother's kitchen was my favorite "bakery." She was always making something sweet to eat! Grandma's pumpkin pie, cookies and her Texas sheet cake are some of my favorite goodies. Oh, and I can't forget her yummy gingerbread! I think I'll make some today! :D

Christel Jensen said...

Hi Kim
How fun is this:) I love French bakeries too. We have one near by me that is run by three Frenchmen and it is called Kanel. They have the best breads and coffee. Also we have a place called Pascal where they sell macaroons. I have to take some pictures from that place sometimes. My favorite of all times is Laduree in Paris. It is 2 hours with plane away..Lol:)
Thank you for the opportunity to be part of your wonderful contest.

SmallBakery said...

Hi Kim!My name is Katerina and I am a huge fan of your blog and your yummy delicious looking cakes!I live in Athens, the capital of Greece, and my favorite bakery is french and is called Eric Kayser!There is also one in Paris!My favourite sweet there is called "Norman apple tart" and you can even see its recipe here:
www.erickayser.com !!! I hope you like it!Keep up the good work and making us hungry!

Daisy said...

You do beautiful work! Thanks for sharing your gift with those of us in blogsland:)
My favorite bakery is Sneiders in Cooperstown, NY. When I was a girl, you could walk down there on a cold,crisp morning and watch the pastries being made through a window, as steam and the scent of fresh breads washed over you. When the doors opened, I would make a beeline for the cinnamon jelly doughnuts, warm and fresh, with melting jelly!

Susanne said...

Hi Kim!
What a wonderful contest.Beautiful things! My favorite bakery and conditorie in Århus, Denmark is Emmerys. Its a very old shop in the middle of the town with good traditions. Now they have exports too. They are famous for their gourmet bread and their cakes. My favorite must be a medaille (Medalje in danish)and a cup of warm chocolate (love Summerbirds chokolade sticks that you melt in warm milk) with wipped cream ;-)..medailles would be wonderful to make in minis..
A medaille is made from two small crispy bunns with a creme and whipped cream between..uhm..
I can find some pictures for you if you like ;-)

Thanks so much Kim for this oportunity. Among all the things I can remember (because I love sweet things!), I love the Macaroons of Laduree of course, I love the Black Forest cake and meringes of a German Bakery Called Edelweiss, I love the carrot cake of a Tea Salon in Madrid called Vailima (they also make amazing macaroons, cupcakes and more) also the carrot cake that makes Cosmen&Keiles Bakery a nice bakery in Madrid. Near this one they have just opened "Le Pain Quotidien" bakery store wich make wondeful brioches, pretzels and you can also have a nice brunch on Sundays. I love the "torteles" of Mallorca Bakery, they too made nice croissants with chocolate tips. When we go to france we love the Tarte au Citron at the Brioche Doree chain stores. But my fav pieces all time are the Epiphany bread, truffles, mini tartes, eclairs, croissants and the birthday cakes etc that makes a Bakery near my house called "Luna", I know the owners, a very nice copuple of bakers, since I was a kid and they do everything handmade! Amazing people.
Wow, I think I love a lot of things!
Hugs from Madrid.

Caseymini said...

Hi Kim, My favorite mini bakery is yours. My favorite Tucson bakery is Beyond Bread. What a wonderful prize! The person that wins it will be very lucky to get it.

Hugs,
Casey and Tessie

Tabitha Corsica said...

My goodness look at all the comments! And why not?! Your mini baking is wonderful as I know first hand. The cupcakes I have from your bakery are delectable and whoever wins is sooo lucky.

Alas, my favorite local bakery simply called "The French Bakery" has just closed it doors after 20 yrs. I loved everything they made of course! But my favorite thing was stopping there on the rare morning I'd drive my son to school (usually Dad did that)and having breakfast. Such memories...

Lize said...

Well, what can I say about the bakeries in Saudi? Since most of them bake edible but tasteless sponge-bread, I'll just tell you about the good ones. There is Crusts for very yummy bread and croissants. And then for sweet-tooth days, I like to admire and sample the baked goods at Le Notre.

In Montreal, I love everything that comes out of Le Panier. I'll stop here, because I am under strict orders NOT to eat over my keyboard!

Btw, that is a very special little corner hutch, filled with pretty goodies, and as always, I love your photos.

mandy said...

Kim,

I must admit that my favorite bakery is in my own kitchen, where I can bake what I want when I want it. My latest favorite is a three layer hummingbird cake made from over ripe bananas, fresh crushed pineapple, and Vietnamese cinnamon.
Your lovely miniature bakery items have inspired more than one item in my kitchen!

Mandy

Claudia said...

Oh, goodness, what a wonderful, generous giveaway! My favorite bakery? Hmm. I think it would have to be our local Village Tea Room, which is in a charming old house and has the best baked goods!

Claudia

rudoo said...

Hi Kim! Oh, I hope I am lucky. The cabinet is lovely! My favorite backery here is called Nouveau Pastery. I love her cakes and cupcakes because of the iceing. It's REAL buttercream. No shortening or fake stuff. It is soooo good!
Thanks,
Jonna

De said...

Your corner cupboard is beautiful, Kim!

I live near Indiana's Amish community. My favorite local bakery is Foltz's. Their baked goods are made from Amish style recipes. They make amazing donuts and frosted sugar cookies.

Annalisa said...

Hi, I would be honoured to win such a wonderful gift!I spent quite much time on your blog, drooling over miniatures..silly, I know, but can't help it, your works look just much better than real food!
As for the giveaway, well..I am not sure about my fave bakery, as I haven't been entering one for several years...and, since I live in the country/by the sea, I really have no chance to go to a good bakey without driving for some hours!So I rely on myself, and bake my own fave cakes and breads..and it's something I love to do, for me and my family-and friends too, of course!
Wish myself and all the other partakers good luck!
Love,
Annalisa@cooking easy

lovi said...

Here in Bloomington, IL I don't really have a favorite bakery, because unfortunately there are not any authentic bakery shops!! However, there is this wonderful cafe that just opened within walking distance, Caffe Italia, and the serve not only the best coffee in town, but homemade, yes homemade, croissants! My fav is the raspberry filled, only made on Saturday mornings...we call before we walk, since sometimes they run out or if it is too cold, the dought doesn't rise properly and they throw the batch away!!

Liberty Biberty said...

What a beautiful hutch Kim!
My favourite bakery is called 'Boulangerie L'Epi' and is in the street where I live, about a two minute walk from my house - dangerously close! My favourite thing is their pain au chocolat, divine!
Mercedes

She'sSewPretty said...

Oh! I just saw this on flickr! That is absolutely adorable! My favorite bakery is called Cupcakes and my favorite thing to get there...what else-a cupcake, the red devil's food is so yummy!

kimsminiatures said...

I went to bed and woke up to so many more lovely comments. I love reading each and every one of them. Thank you and good luck to you all~ Hugs! Kim

Lissu said...

Lovely hutch <3 My favorite bakery was Fazer bakery in Helsinki when I was little girl, where I ate with my grandmother very delicious Sacher cake.

Deni said...

Thats a lovely corner hutch!KIm

my favourite bakery is Shabby little bakery
The cakes are delectable!
I peruse often, many delicious items are in this bakery but are never sold!
I luv it not only because of the delightful cakes I so enjoy looking at the delicious goodies, daily, I might add, but never eating i a bonus as it does not extend my (body)boundaries!lol

I have never met the owner but I hear such wonderful things about her,and she must be the most wonderful person as the cakes are always exceptional!
hehehehe!!!

kimsminiatures said...

Thank you Lissu and Deni. I appreciate your comments. Good luck. Hugs~ Kim

kibbygirl said...

I absolutely love it!!!! How beautiful. You are so talented. I love your style too, not to mention that your mini goodies look delicious too :) My favorite bakery is actually in a small italian grocery store in our town and they make the best portugise custard tarts. Yummmm. That and anywhere that makes lemon meriange pie!

Karin F. said...

wow what a lot of comments! Your hutch is beautiful! No wonder.
So you want to know my favorite bakery...
I think bakeries are becoming scarce...unfortuately! People go to their grocery store and see cake. But there's cake & there's good cake...& you have to have been brought up with the good kind, you know the difference!
We have a little bakery close by that people swear by if they've bought there once.
As for my favorite....unfortunately I love it all: eclairs, stollen at Christmas, chop suey loaf, strudel. You name it, I'll eat it!

Marsha (Sassy Mini Dolls) said...

I just love your work, Kim

Well, I don't have a favorite bakery as I don't go to any :(

((Hugs))

froxannef said...

I just found your blog through a friend that I follow and I just love your creations...so realistic and your settings are just lovely :o)
I hate to admit it...but we do love to visit the french patiserrie every now and then...we have one close by called "Canelle" in New York and they have the most wonderful Tarte du Citron also know as Lemon Tart...to die for! My husband tells me that they remind him of the kind that he used to buy in a pastry shop in France when he was a child.

jodi said...

Kim, First off, the blog looks amazing. The giveaway is completely darling. I come almost every day, and sometimes just look through all the pics to bring some sunshine to my day. I have had the privilege of meeting Kim in person. It was such a blessing! She is wonderful person who brings so many poeple joy through her creations. Truely kind. It shows in what you do Kim. My favorite bakery is called Gear Up, right here in little Silverton, Or. The best thing is their cinnimon rolls. Your Oregon Buddy, Jodi

Christina said...

I've been admiring your work for a long time. The first was the "Sweet Shop" and it was just incredible! I also discovered Bonnie Justice's doll in that shop and am happy to say that I own several of them now...I can only dream of also owning that sweet shop...
My favorite bakery is 'Holey Cannoli' in Worcester MA. Of course my favorite there is a cannoli but I am also partial to their anise cookies...yummy!

sara marina said...

Hello, My favorite bakery is called La Farine and I love to get the Morning Buns there! They so delicious and so crisp. They're basically really fancy french cinnamon rolls. I hope I'm lucky!!!

miniacollection said...

Your photo is superb as always. Everything is perfect, the furniture, the cupcakes and the detail with the magazine. I like the style and the colours.
My favourite pâtisserie in Orléans is Les Musardises. They also have a tea room. It's an old pâtisserie, with a very stylish décor inside. I don't remembe the name of my favourite cake, it's a chocolate mousse cake. All their cakes are beautiful to look at. The other day I invited a friend for dinner and as a present she brought me individual cakes from Les Musardises. They also make delicious macarons.If we want a very good cake for a special occasion we go there. If you type Lees Musardises Orléans and then images you can see photos of the shop.
You are very kind to offer a gift . But as I said in my last commentary, it's no surprise you have so many followers and visitors, it's just because your blog is great.
Geneviève

Kayjay said...

Hi Kim love your blog :) In the UK proper bakeries are getting fewer and fewer, so I don't have a favourite although the best bakery I have ever been to was one in Lille in France - the French do still know how to make delicious cakes - and my favourite cake is a strawberry tart

A. Wright said...

Hi Kim, wow looks like the competition on this giveway is Fierce! Hope you have big jar for names :) Sadly, we dont have a favorite bakery here, but I dabble in the occasional baking binge at home, especially around the holidays.

Good luck ladies and gents

Evelien said...

What a wonderful give-away! It would be amazing to win some of your work!

All the favourites people describe here make me slobber haha, I guess I like those things. I don't have a favourite bakery.

Have a nice day!

Never Enough Time said...

What a beautiful cupboard. I would be thrilled if I won!
My favorite bakery is in a neighboring city. I actually used to work there years ago and decorated cakes. They have amazing pasteries.
Mini hugs,
Donna

Kim said...

What a wonderful give-away! Your work is always amazing-I always love visiting your blog. We don't really have a bakery in the city I live in- but I used to work next door to a bakery called "Taste of Scandinavia" and my favorite thing to get there was a pumpkin cookie with cream cheese frosting. They had the best bread too. MMM, I ate my fair share of pumpkin cookies before I left that job!

Christina said...

Wow, your miniatures are amazing. I am looking for a dollhouse now to buy and put together. I want to try to make some of my own miniatures but have no idea where to start! I found your blog during my search, so glad I did.

Let's see, bakeries... I would have to say my favorite here is a little family run shop called Country Cousins. My fave of theirs is simple enough....jelly doughnuts. mmmmmmm The only jelly doughnuts I like.

Christina

Joanna Thomas said...

Hey Kim! I hope I am not too late for your giveaway! What a PRECIOUS cabinet! OMG I thought it was full size! I don't have a favorite bakery.. I LOVE them all! LOL.. Actually I live in a very small town and we don't really have a bakery.. just a doughnut shop.. I try to stay outa there! lol... BUT I love cake of any kind! In fact cake is my favorite food in the world. That and hotdogs! LOL.. Neither of which I eat very much of. I also love sugar cookies! YUM!

PonderandStitch said...

Omg... I cannot believe how cute that hutch is!!!! I am a fan of ALL things tiny and love this!

Unfortunately, I don't have a favorite bakery here- I wish I did!! If I could choose my favorite treat it would be pie- cherry pie, actually. I could always go for brownies, too- but not the cake-like brownies- the really chewy ones!
