Hello everyone!

I kind of dissapeared for a little while, this is me guys .. I post 4 times in a week or I vanish like a ninja lol.

I've been working a lot on my mum's ice cream shop project and the good news is, it's almost complete. The last details such as curtains, the tables and putting all the little pieces around that I did for this shop and it's going to be finished. It looks good so far. I may be posting some pics of it in a week or so.

But as the subject says, here I bring you the latest pieces I've been doing plus, a new Halloween mini addition to my Etsy shop *yay!*

A cute ceramic play filled with cookies :)


I'm quite happy about the way the muffin's swirl came around ... I was experimenting with ways of avoiding the frustration of using the cake decorating tip -_-"".
If you guys would like to know more about the "swirl experiment", let me know by leaving a comment.

At last!! pie safe restored to look like a 16th century piece (but with a touch of shabbiness! *giggles*)
Second piece I completed today; a pie safe. I restored it to look as a 16th century one.

A bit of history: "The pie safe was used to store not only pies, but also meat, bread, and other perishables, protecting them from vermin and insects, the Dutch introduced it in the 16th century to the US and it was used till the 19th century."

My pie safe was restored completely but before starting I researched about it so as to know about the palette ans style I had to follow. I took an "artistic license" with the flower motif ;)
And at last, I added some sweets, it's a pie safe after all!

More pieces on the way, I have many laying on my table (the usual thing) waiting to be finished.


Hugs ****

  4. Wonderful pie safe, Ann, I really like the idea that you took an "artistic license" (I love to do this too, as you can see on my blog) with the flower motif ;)! Just like Elizabeth, I am curious how you achieved the "swirl" on the cupcakes. It seems to me quite difficult to make a perfect one, but you did ;O!
    Hugs, Ilona

      I'm going to do a tutorial about decorating mini sweets so that all of you can do it as well, the cake decorating tip is really good in certain cases and not all.
