New in - Muffins, Lolita cake, 1/3 scale trifle and our Halloween party

Hey hey Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

So I was sick with a cold for more than 2 weeks (coughing all the way through the Book of Mormon) but I still managed to come up with some new items for the shop. 

Our first new item is a grand 3-tier cake fit for a lolita princess. The cake has a pearl sheen and decorated with bows, gold accents and heart macaron shells. This is by far the sweetest cake we have in the 'Cakes' menu
Angelic Pretty 3-tier cake
Details: Mint coloured bows, cherry heart macaron shells, gold pearls. Top tier is in a quilted pattern with gold beads.
Also new in are these delicious hot and fluffy muffins in 4 different varieties. We just started selling Hello Kitty chain coffee in our shop and muffins will entice any coffee lover. Muffins are now available in the 'Bakery' menu. Each muffin is modelled by hand and nestled in tulip paper liners.

Another new item we have is for the 1/3 scale menu. This is a classic dessert called a trifle and features layers of cake, custard, jam and drowned in jelly/gelatine. Each trifle is topped with whipped cream to add an extra layer of creaminess to the dessert. 

These trifles are made from air-dry clay, air-dry cream, polymer clay, simulator dessert sauces and resin. You can see the details of each layer clearly through the dish.

Right: Lime jelly trifle with strraberry sauce and strawberries. Left: Strawberry jelly trifle with blueberry sauce and blueberries

I've also made an update on our jelly/gelatine dessert in resin. They don't look as wobbly or gelatinous as the water simulator models (available only for clients in the UK) but still looks quite realistic. International clients can now see what a resin jelly model looks like and what they can expect.

Check out the differences for yourself in our 'Jelly' menu.

Another update is a Neapolitan ice cream wafer sandwich using an improved recipe. It was recently commissioned by a Littlest Sweet Shopper in the far east. I hope she likes it!

Only 9 sleeps to go 'til Halloween night! Are you ready yet? We are having a party in the dining room of Puppen Haus and the girls are dressed in their cute (not scary) costumes.
Welcome to our Halloween party! Yuffie is a nurse, Akiko is a French maid, Maya is an air hostess and Naru is a policewoman
Scary treats for all of our dolly guests

My special announcement in today's post is that I will be blogging for Sculpey in 2015! 
Sculpey is one of the leading brands of polymer clay (the main ingredient in our sweets) from America so I am truly honoured to join the Sculpey Design Squad. If you have been interested or curious on how Littlest Sweet Shop sweets are made - make sure you stay tuned! I will be contributing at least once a fortnight and there will be a big project consisting 4 miniature sweets with step-by-step instructions. 
Okay, that's all for now. Time to work on our Christmas goodies. Oh my how time flies!
