Spring Sunshine (& Bread!)

With light in the sky till after 9pm now it is quite amazing the difference putting the clocks forward that hour has made! Dinner in the evening sunshine overlooking the hills makes you realise - things definitely have changed and we're now well and truly back in the land of light and everything is coming back to life all around us!  We hope very much that this Spring Wreath Bread will make you feel the same as it too invokes the essence of this time of year and all of nature's bright wonders flooding back into the world once more!

Easter Eggs!

As we watched the sunset over the hills after 7 o'clock tonight it seems hard to believe that in just a weeks time that sunset will be way past 8pm as we travel in time one hour to British Summer Time! People are arriving on the Island with their holidays stretched out in front of them once more too! Time for Easter Eggs then!! This glass dish full of decorated eggs for Easter is all ready for the Annual Easter Egg Roll & when the miniature family returns home they can devour this completely gorgeous Luxury Milk, White & Dark Chocolate Easter Egg With Glitter Sugar Flower!!

Here's to the sunshine!

A Taste Of Spring!

It's the first day of Spring! It may have seemed a long time coming but we have finally completed the journey that was Winter 2013 and have come out to see the Spring light at the end of the snowy tunnel!! With Easter not far away now these deliciously tempting 4 Springtime Cake Slices are a new addition to our online store today! So evocative of everything Easter and Spring the colors bring to life this time of year in the miniature world. Not in our online store yet there's also a preview of this very special tiny individual lemon sponge cake!

Spring Dining!

A week today until the official start of Spring! A time when we start thinking about lighter dishes and al fresco dining once more as the comfort foods of Winter give way to delights such as this miniature

Layered with light puff pastry and sandwiched together with whipped double cream and mixed fresh fruit, the cake is surrounded by a crunchy assortment of chopped and toasted nuts before being topped with icing sugar and a hint of the delicious fruit inside! Can't you just imagine sitting outside on a lovely, warm Spring night with a glass of something cold and a fork ready to dig in to a slice of this?!!

Meringue Frosted Vanilla Cake!

The wonderful citrus colors of the orange and lemon atop this Meringue Frosted Vanilla Cake, a new addition to our website store, are a reminder that we're only two weeks (yes, just two weeks away!!) from the start of Spring and indeed for some Daylight Saving Time begins in just a couple of days! Here in Scotland we have to wait until Easter Sunday but still the nights are getting lighter and lighter all the time and the early evening sunlight provides many tempting settings for photographing miniatures!

Trifling With Desserts!

These 4 Angel Cake Slices just make you want to take a bite out of the light, fluffy sponge or perhaps pick a crystallised rose petal from the luscious lemon cream cheese frosting!! The Raspberry & Blackcurrant Trifle makes you wish you had a spoon to dig in too!! You can't eat either a miniature or a photograph but they can certainly make you feel hungry!
