Hope everyone is enjoying fabulous weather as spring gains more ground in our little corner of the world on the East Coast. :)
And fabulous mini-making too of course!
Little by little, the spring bakery I'm working on grows.....
|Ooo-la-la! Some fancy-schmancy chocolate eggs! Topped with a raspberry, and raspberry filled.|
|I always loved chocolate bunnies in my Easter basket.|
|And white chocolate ones too! :)|
|Another Easter cake, with lots of whipped frosting (I'm experimenting with piping. Not quite there yet :) Needs more definition in the piping. I'll save that for a future post on piping methods.|
|A flexible bunny mold makes miniature chocolate much easier! I made this silicon mold using an old tiny bunny charm.|
|Bunnies multiply fast, don't they?|
|And then I used a jewelry finding to make a flexible fancy egg mold.|
|I filled the eggs with "raspberry" filling using an awesome new tool - a Jacquard Fine Line Applicator that Polymer Clay Express had asked me to try out. Works great with Liquid Fimo to really capture those fine details and features.|
|The set comes with three tips in .5mm, 7mm, and 9mm sizes, and a squeeze bottle. I used the .5mm size to pipe the raspberry filling into the tiny openings all around the sides of the chocolate eggs. It's ultra fine and easy to control.|
