Time for some 'Fun'!!

I know I'm going to regret this in a week or two when the family all arrive for Christmas, but now that the pressure of making pieces for Kensington is over, I've been enjoying myself in my mini 'sweatshop' by actually making something that I wanted to do rather than what I Have to do! A couple of months ago,while flicking through a cake decorating book (cake decorators are SUCH talented people!) I came across a cake by a lady called Karen Goble that she had called 'Santa's Sleigh Ride'...I just couldn't resist trying it in miniature!...I LOVE the result! It measures 40mm x 25mm x 25mm




The photo just doesn't do the cake justice I'm afraid (& if you look carefully you'll spot the deliberate mistake on this one..yes, Santa is facing the wrong way!)AND, instead of the traditional 9 reindeer pulling the sleigh, there are only 3....the others must be taking a day off! LOL. I made 2, one for my own collection & one to sell but I'm still trying to decide whether or not to list it on eBay as I'd hate to see it sell for less than I think it's worth! A dilemma!! LOL

soooooo cute!
Have fun more often :D
And no Santa isn't looking the wrong way, he's just keeping an eye behind him in case he looses some presents. (duh!)

and yeah eBay kinda sucks... I'm not sure if I'll relist there, it's just too disappointing...

What a charming cake, I agree with Petit. :)

I think on ebay, peeps are looking for cheap, not quality... but, you never know...

Only 45 mm x 25 mm?! WOW, certainly it is tiny with those all details...!! It is a great work :))

Unfortunately many people don't value miniaturists' work, but I think the most important thing is that YOU are satisfied with the sale price of your items.
