Ice cream cake and new updates!

Hello Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

I'm so pleased to meet the deadline for a big commission that I was working on solidly in the last 2 weeks. I can now focus all my attention back to the Sweet Shop and come up with some new arrivals!
New updates and products
First new item is ice cream cake. I just love ice cream cake and even remember my first piece. It was chocolate ice cream on vanilla cake at a birthday party decades ago. I love cake and I LOVE ICE CREAM. It's a yummy treat for any occasion so every cake will be open to any customisation including the ice cream flavour, cake mix, decoration and more! Check it out now in the Ice-Cream menu
Mint choc chip ice cream cake with butter-cake and pink vanilla icing.
I also made new improved Mont Blanc designs. The decoration is now kept simple and you can get it in 3 different flavours: Sweet Potato (purple), Chestnut and Green Tea. It is a popular Japanese dessert but it is located in the French Pastries menu 
Mont Blanc means white mountain. The peaks of these cute pastries are dusted with some 'snow' (powdered sugar). You can also have them decorated with gold or silver sprinkles.
I've also been using more of my 'sauces' from the Tamiya Decoration Series. It gives a realistic and glossy icing to almost anything and everything! 
Updated éclairs with chocolate sauce and strawberry sauce. Find it in the French Pastries menu
Milk strawberry sauce looks super yummy and sweet on this doughnut! Available now in the Bakery menu
Cherry Cream chocolate cake. Available in the Cakes menu
Swiss rolls iced with milk strawberry and strawberry sauce. Also available in the Cakes menu
Pretzels with new toppings. Plain salted pretzel, Salted caramel and almond pretzel, Chocolate and candy pretzel. All available now in the Bakery menu
Before I sign out, let me introduce you to our new Littlest Sweet Shop maid. Her name is Akiko and she loves strawberry shortcake.

She will be the last maid, unless we expand the shop :)

Here she is with a sneak peak to our upcoming Spring 2014 collection. It will make it's proper debut alongside the other Easter goodies VERY SOON. I have to make several trips to London next week but I'm still going to try to complete the new Easter range by Shrove Tuesday.

OK, gotta get back to work. Always so busy!

New cakes and ice cream :D

Hello Littlest Sweet Shoppers <3

I hope you are enjoying this Valentine's Day weekend with your sweetheart. My Valentine (aka husband) was sweet enough to get me a cotton candy machine to celebrate our love (and my sweet tooth).

I'm currently working on that big commission that I was talking about in the last post but still managed to create some new product updates!

First update - CAKES! You can check out each cake individually in the Cakes menu.

New cake updates
'Big bow' cake. With jam filling
 Chocolate mint cake. Mint filling with rich chocolate cake
Caramel cake with pastel sprinkles
Butterfly cake
Naru and Maya are testing out the new cake over a cup of tea. Naru asks you to join them.
We have also been enjoying the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. It's a great excuse to make these flag cookies so your dolls can support their favourite teams over a cuppa! The icing for these cookies had to be done using a needle since it requires fine and intricate craftsmanship!
Bespoke flag sugar cookies now available in the Bakery menu
Maya and Naru loves watching the figure skating event. Maya gets a bit over-excited when she cheers on her favourite team. Naru enjoys some Littlest Sweet Shop popcorn which is a great snack for TV time.
 Our last update is in the Ice Cream menu!
Traffic light popsickles! Cherry, pineapple and lime flavoured ice-lollies
Ice cream sandwiches are available in 2 yummy shapes and any ice cream filling
Mamachapps in Italy are celebrating this special weekend with some treats from Littlest Sweet Shop here and here. So are these lovely Pureneemo XS and Picco Neemo dolls:

If you like Littlest Sweet Shop products and would like to do a swap for them, please check out the Swap/Trade program. I have listed the items that I want in exchange with ANY Littlest Sweet Shop product. Please visit this page if you are interested. 
Maya and Naru loves swapping especially when it comes with free friendship!
OK, that's all for now. See you soon!

Freshly baked BREAD!

Hello Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

Here is a mini mid-week update! I've taken some new shots of Littlest Sweet Shop bread alongside some new ones.
Littlest Sweet Shop bread selection. Parisians are available in the French Pastries menu
Medium-sized bread (same commissioning price for the options shown here). They are listed in the Bakery menu
Farmhouse loaf  (with various re-Ment miniatures). Available in the Bakery menu
So it's only 1 week to go before Valentine's Day! Please remember to get something for your loved one/ones and here is a little inspiration:
Valentine's day buffet with some new additions! I've also added new lollipop cookies, cupcakes and mini cheesecake

As promised, the new maid (Naru) in action! I'm totally smitten with these Sweets à la mode dolls from Azone. I've just purchased another one (OMG!) and she will probably arrive hopefully by Valentine's Day. My plan is just to get just one girl from each pair they release since they cost a lot of £££s. 
Since we have a second maid working in the shop, Maya has gotten lazy
Naru is a Pureneemo Chocomint Lycee doll. She loves serving ice-cream!
My recent commission was to cater a tea party picnic. The clients were Pureneemo XS and Picco Neemo dolls so the doughnuts were done in 1/8th scale which was a perfect size for them. Since most of Littlest Sweet Shop items are hand-modelled - sizing of the food can be customised.

Here are some cute photos from the tea party! (credit rounezu on flickr)

Delicious strawberry shortcakes and doughnuts from Littlest Sweet Shop
OK, that's all for now! I will be quite busy with a big commission this whole month so please submit a commission request early if you would like some treats for your dollhouse/dolls/dioramas/etc.

Toodles ^_^
