Miniature Bakery Finished!

Well my fellow bloggers and bloggettes, the silent auction piece was finally finished thanks to LOTS of construction help from my hubby. I have tons of patience for polymer clay, not so much for hammer and wood. Heh! And much to my delight everyone who passed by my mini-bakery today SMILED when they peeked in...even the ones who didn't place a bid. Isn't this what minis do to a person? I think one of the blogs I follow titles their blog..Minis Make Us Happy (or something like that :)

And they really do...make us happy that is.

A charming little bakery, somewhere in mini-land....

Ah! How true, how true! 

A view from slightly above...

Sniff sniff! I finally parted with my little mini cash register...
And yes, my little pink mini mixer too (we still have the red one and the white one :) It was all for a good cause anyway, raising money for our school. 
Hey - I thought "squares" were out in the 1960s?? Well here we have some fruity square shaped cakes (I was getting bored with making round cakes :)
That is one messy baker who occupies this kitchen! Look at that cupboard!

I thought the faux window was a nice touch. Thanks to Gibby's Dollhouses and Miniatures in Westminster for the idea!
Tried some donuts too, and a Swiss cake roll - easy peasy! (Not as difficult as those pesky little cupcakes) 
And I still have leftover cupcakes for future displays!!!! And it's a good thing too, those cupcakes are painstakingly time consuming to make, but they do look oh-so-good in a display. :)
Thank you all for looking and for leaving such wonderful comments. It makes my heart soar and my motivation surge to read the feedback. I see I have 84 followers now! OMG!!! I think when I hit that magic number - 100 - I'm going to have to do my first giveaway. When I first started this blog last year I never dreamed I'd have any followers besides myself. LOL Thank you all!
