Funny lettuce

I made lettuces today- and boy is it hard! First I started with a cane and FAIL! So then I started rolling the clay so the colors would blend in..............somewhat got the color, but not the texture is the problem. Does anyone know the perfect tool for lettuce texture? I used aluminum foil ( I know, I know, so stupid). This is a custom order, and it's not like I can give up now :( my client has been really excited about this and I can't let her down now!! OK enough for today.
P.S. the oysters are made of polymer clay :)

Hello everyone! and Welcome to my new followers! I was busy working on the "oyster project". It took me forever to get the oyster right...and the shell of course is still a little funny....but no one will see it since it is the bottom - right? (please say I'm right)
The oyster shell-experimenting with the colors.

Lemon Wedges!

Today I made lemon wedges...part of a custom order, and it was so much fun! I've made lemon canes before but this is the first time I made wedges. The one that is squished is done on purpose~ it's supposed to be a squeezed lemon!

Mango & Cherry Desserts

I made mango tarts and cherry cheesecakes. But since my favorite cheesecake is marbled, I tried to make one also. And my work for the day shot: I think I've had enough to making cookies!

Thank you everyone for the great tips and advices! I will keep everything in mind :)

Today I made some tiramisu~
Now I have five in my petits fours.
I also enjoyed making the blueberry mousse so much that I made bigger ones. I think I enjoyed it so much that I'm making cherry mousse and mango mousse tomorrow ;)

Petits fours

This is what I've been making for the past 3 days. One a day!
strawberry tart, mont blanc, blueberry mousse, chocolat chocolat

my new tile and the bread and mousse of the blueberry mousse :)

and a question to all the miniaturists out there...Do you use flash when taking pictures of your minis? I definitely need to get a lightbox, but not until I move. My pictures are so dark even in daylight! Help!!

Finally I get to show you the macarons I've been working on for the past 3 days!

My eyes! o.o And remember my custom order for macarons? My client wasn't so excited about the shape so after much contemplation I found out that she wanted macaroons and not macarons! So I will be making some of those later in the week~

Custom Order!

I've been busy with some custom orders :) I might as well open up a flower shop since now I know how to make long stem roses!

I also made some macarons and a special kind of iris- "ashes of roses"

off to make more macarons!
