New in - Thanksgiving treats and more Halloween candy!

Hey hey Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

Happy autumn! I know at first everyone is in denial about the season change (and it's getting harder to ignore dropping temperatures and shorter daylight time) but we all need to embrace it and welcome the fall season with open arms.

Here are some new arrivals that are just perfect for the season and Thanksgiving Day. The items in the picture below are all now available in the Seasonal menu.
New autumn season arrivals
We have two different types of pumpkin pies. The filling is a beautiful caramel/pumpkin colour that will make anyone's mouth water. As always, pie dishes are recycled bottle caps.

Doesn't the whipped cream look super light and fluffy? The perfect dessert after Thanksgiving dinner.

Gobble Gobble Gobble
Turkey Cookies. Subtle icing design to make out feathers on the sugar cookie
Maple cookies. Available in autumnal colours like browns, caramel, orange and gold
I've also made some additional spooky candy especially for Halloween. They are made from a cane so you can have it in 1/6 and even 1/12 scale. It's the perfect filler for your doll's Halloween treat bag. Also new in the Seasonal menu.
Spiderweb mint candies. Black and white candy with an intricate web pattern
My skull cane came out looking a bit like Skeletor ><
Skull liquorice candy. Not poison!

In the spirit of Halloween I thought I'd make more new candy for the sweet shop. This candy bar is now available in the Sweets Boutique menu. I thought it would be also fun to give clients the option to have the candy bar sliced open to reveal the filling. You can also have any filling of your choice!

A BIG thank you to Maya who arranged the new Halloween items near the window display. It's all part of her job as a Littlest Sweet Shop maid.

She dropped by after school to help out

Back to School

Hey Hey Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

There are some new 1/3 and 1/6 scale treats that arrived in the shop today including these (NEW) delicious cakes. These 1/3 scale cakes are now available in the 1/3 menu.

I was commissioned to make some cake slices and made a Raspberry heart cake (perfect for 2 dolls to share) whilst developing them.

1/3 Black Forest cake slice
1/3 Strawberries and Cream cake slice
1/3 Raspberry cake
Your dolls can also opt for any type and flavour of cake that they desire! I will definitely develop new cakes in 1/3 in the future.

Here are some updates on current 1/3 treats:

Mint and Vanilla scoops with strawberry milk sauce, pastel sprinkles, whipped cream and cherry
Blue and pink pastel doughnuts
That's not all! Here are some new 1/6 scale treats:

Mini Victoria Sponge cake. Topped with whole strawberries
Mini Victoria Sponge cake. Topped with cherries and blueberries
The cakes look so cute alongside my new My Melody re-Ment miniatures. The mini size makes it perfect for tea parties. Now available in the Cakes menu.
Frozen Yoghurt.
Our frozen yoghurt comes in a cute wafer bowl. The mini size should fit in the palm of your doll's hand. Now available in the Ice Cream menu.

These two whole cakes (1/6 scale) were also commissioned recently. The Victoria sponge cake features the latest strawberry slices from a cane I made.

Cakes made for the Lancashire Lasses
The Littlest Sweet Shop maids have just started the new school term.

The girls always find a hard time deciding what they would  like to eat first!
The Littlest Sweet Shop girls look so preppy-chic in their new uniforms. They seem pretty excited about the new term and I'm also starting ballet again! It's been a long summer holiday without any real exercise and stretching so I MUST prepare before the first class (gulp!). I'm also taking additional private lessons in ballet but I will still have enough time to model more new things for the Sweet Shop.

Okay, that's all for now. I hope you enjoyed all the new arrivals that came in today. Please come visit again next time for some Halloween-tastic treats!
