Fruit, fruit & yet more fruit!

Over the last few days, I've been driving myself mad, not to mention, blind, by making literally thousands of tiny fruits. Red & blackcurrants, gooseberries, raspberries, grapes & strawberries all to add to an extravagant chocolate & fresh fruit wedding cake that in my madness I decided I would make! The cake is almost half finished now & I decided that I needed a break from it & so this little pedestal was born! It wasn't too much of a break though, but at least I was putting tiny fruits somewhere other than on a chocolate cake! :-))
The entire pedestal measures 21mm high & is 20mm at the widest point......I'm sick of summer fruit before it's even grown! :-))

Lin that is beautiful. Its a wonder you don't go blind.
Looks like Real Fruit and veg in the shops will start to get scarce soon, with none being flown in.
