Shades of Summer

Still sweltering in the Summer heat we have the perfect addition to our popular range of miniature cake slices with these 4 Strawberry Marble Cake Slices! There's something so tempting about the vibrant red, whole fresh strawberries that is so evocative of sunshine and days when the light breeze is the only thing moving! The warm weather has turned the hillsides surrounding us purple almost overnight as the wild Scottish Heather has blossomed into life! Looking out from the worktable and seeing the landscape turn pink and purple almost right in front of you is quite special and encapsulates just a small piece of the magic that makes Skye so inspirational and which we always try to ensure there's a little bit of in our miniatures too!

Time For Gourmet Cheese!

Heading for the middle of August it seems that we're in the full grip of Summer again in the Islands! It's warm, sunny, the final day of the London 2012 Olympic Games & very hard to believe that here in the miniature world we're making our first steps towards this years Autumn/Fall/Halloween launch!! As the world marches forward and time seems to move on at an ever faster pace the stillness of the tiny miniatures around us provides a wonderful grip on the "moment" and a new addition to our Etsy store this weekend we're excited to share is this Gourmet Cheese Board filled with luxury!

Summer Cakes!

After a glorious Summers day here on the Island we would have loved to sit down in the evening sunshine and tuck in to the real version of these 4 Rose Framboise Cake Slices! It has definitely been the weather for a picnic here & some tourists actually did just that when they parked their car opposite the loch to admire our work table view! They perched on the rocks and enjoyed their lunch amongst the grass in front of Hebridean blue waters - the perfect way to spend a lunchtime!!

Back to that work table!
