60th Miniature Keepsake Birthday Cake

Yesterday I worked on an order for a 60th Miniature Keepsake Birthday Cake that I created in Fimo.  Customer only ordered the cake...but I just couldn't help myself...the cake looked so lonely.  I hope she likes the extras, there's a Window Cake Box, Birthday card with "Happy 60th Birthday" printed inside, 1 large box filled with treats and 1 small giftbox that can be opened & filled, on a little handmade table.  Cardstock crafts are so much fun...hehehe

Picture Update below:  Now the number 6 looks less like a G...I hope.

I LoVe Pim's Euorpean Biscuits, Do you?

They are by LU and are imported from Belgium.  The tangy Raspberry/Framboise filled ones are my favorite, they also come in orange.  They have a soft, light biscuit and a dark chocolate topping.  I find them to be very rich and decadent, and even though they are quite thin and or two always satisfies my craving for them.  Below is my version of these delectable treats in polymer clay.

Macarons, Macarons...and more Macarons

My first batch of macarons....were not all that great (and no I will not show you a pic :p ), in fact my 4 year old is happily playing with them...he get's so excited when I give him the bad  What else am I to do with them?  This way they get to ride around in his toy cars and we're both happy.
Now this batch I am quite happy with...I'm really loving the "feet" (frilly edges) this time around with my new technique.
