Fish & Chips With Miniature Salt!


Fish and chips, complete with miniature salt - a new take on the British classic in 1/12th scale?! All we need now is a Summers day, a light breeze and a sea wall to perch on while we tuck in to them - if only they were real!!

Spring Floral Cake Slices!

Every year Spring is a wonder that never diminishes with the passing of time, it's always as new and as joyous as the year before, whether it's watching a buzzard circling overhead from the worktable window, taking miniature inspiration from the daffodils on a walk by the shore on an early season day or admiring an otter made entirely from chocolate!!
 
It seems that no Springtime could possibly be complete without some of our signature cake slices decorated with sugar Spring flowers either and with this in mind these new Spring Floral Cake Slices have been popped into our Etsy store!
