Non Traditional Easter Baking!!

A HAPPY EASTER to everyone & a special welcome to my new followers..why you should want to follow my nutty ramblings remains a mystery!! :-)) A special welcome to Vicky...a fellow dweller in the grey & cold North East of England!!
I decided that I'd had enough of Easter Eggs, Hot Cross Buns etc etc..ad infinitum & decided to bake (for "real"...shock horror!)...but, of course, having baked the full size, I then just had to replicate them in miniature, & FAST, while I still had the "real" thing in front of me( before I devoured them with my coffee!!) to look at whilst sculpting. My goodness...I had to work really fast before I ate the subject I was modelling!!


As the baking bug (for real) took hold, I raided the freezer & used the last of the currant harvest from last year to make a yummy pie for pud last night &, yes, you guessed...a miniature version was just screaming to be made too!!




A VERY HAPPY EASTER TO ALL!

Hahaha! You always need to make the real thing before turning it in miniature :D :D now wonder it's such perfect! I mostly use photos.
Gorgeous food as always. I've already had my breakfast but at 8h00 and it's 10h46 and I'm hungry again lol! So please pass me your home made croissant *___* are they hard to bake?? Never tried!
