More cheese...

Thank you everyone for the wonderful suggestions! I have 2 windows, so I will be displaying cheese and meat in one, and bread, fruits and desserts in the other.
I still need to make mortadella to add to my meats. Has anyone tried it? I always get the italian sub without it since the color doesn't seem too appetizing...

I also hung some chorizo near the window display. (The shelf on the back looks awfully short! I will have to stack it up with more cheese.)

These are some grapes I made to display in my 2nd window, but look how the colors turned out. The two in the back are from my first batch and the color is very fake compared to the one in the front. So sad!!

Please help me choose my store name. I am thinking of "Geppetto's" or "Figaro's"- which one do you like better?

Italian Deli shop progress...

I have had some progress on my shop after reading many supportive comments! I made a cheese shelf and a ham "hanger" shelf, and also made some italian meats while I was MIA from blogland. Here are some pictures:

prosciutto, salami, capicola, chorizo and a garlic braid

The pictures are horrible- the lighting and the shelves creates so many ugly shadows :(

I am wondering what to display in the display windows.......any suggestions?

Thank God it's almost Friday! So excited for the weekend :) I made some cheese for my italian store (bakery shop turned into a donut shop and now it will become an italian store....for now at least). I wanted to show you how big it is:
I am hoping to fill it up with cheese, ham and some fruits.

Oyster platter and plants

I made a new oyster platter (this time everything is attached) to bring to my parents. The orange in the middle is the cocktail sauce on an empty shell (saw them do this at a restaurant!).

I also made other kind of plants to display in my new shop (which I still cannot make up my mind-donut? bakery? candy?).

Have a great weekend!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Although it's been 2 days, I hope everyone who celebrates the holiday had a blast!

molcajete (volcanic rock) with guacamole

I also wanted to share a photo of this miniature dollhouse cake I made for Louisa from the Little Big Company. She had a dollhouse themed birthday party and it was even featured in Amy Atlas Events! Her work is amazing and her blog is a birthday party itself :)

Cupcakes in 1:3 scale

This used to be my favorite cupcake flavor when I was that I think about it, I think it still is. I loved the rainbow sprinkles and sprinkled it all over my desserts! Anyway, my friend was having an American girl themed party and wanted to give these away as party favors.

The rubber ducky one is for a baby shower prop :)

For those of you who are wondering- I use polymer clay to make all my minis, and sometimes wood for colored pencils, lollipop sticks and plant pots :)

I made chocolate covered strawberries for Valentines. Now that I think about it, strawberry season is quite long. I make a lot of strawberry minis for Valentines and Independence Day, so 6 months?

A customer wanted to make earrings out of them- did you know that my ears are not pierced? How uncommon is that? I remember wanting to pierce it so much when I was in 2nd-5th I really don't care (guess I'm getting old).

This is based from a cake I saw online, and the real one is frosted in roses. I guess the ruffle/ribbon/rose cakes are in style these days!
