Even though our county is Distance Learning, we still get snow days off from school! So when Mother Nature blessed us with a few inches of snow, I got two days to play with miniatures!
I've been wanting to make a partially eaten pan of left out mac and cheese for years. It's for my hunting cabin: I could envision my hunter making a mac and cheese casserole and then eating it straight out of the pan (why dirty another dish?).
First I had to make the elbow macaroni:
I was so happy to finish this little project that has been in my head for years now! Now I need to bring out my Hunter's Cabin and work on that for a bit so this left out mac and cheese can be put in it's place.
Next up I wanted to make some candies for my candy shop. Using a Ruth Stewart mold (Stewart Dollhouse Etsy Shop), I created a handful of wrapped candies to go in a glass jar on the countertop in the Cottontail Confectionery (the candy shop).
Naturally, since I was playing, my kids wanted to join in. My youngest made some Madelines (also from a Ruth Stewart's mold). She makes these cookies in real life and now she's made them in miniature.
My eldest daughter had to play too so she made me some swirl stick lollipops for my Cottontail Confectionery (the candy shop).
Then she played around with the clay and the exacto knife, and she created mini bits of coral! Perfect for a fish tank!
I had purchased a mold years and years ago from Vilia Miniatures (Vilia's Etsy Shop) and decided to play with it today:
The other food project I had rattling around in my head for years has been the dessert waffle. I have seen some pancakes and waffles with syrup before, but in my mini world, I want my waffles with ice cream, chocolate sauce, and fruit (hmmm, maybe some of those fruits I made above need to go on a waffle....). I had purchased this waffle mold a few years back from Ruth Stewart (Waffle Mold). This was the perfect day to play with it!
