Christmas at the Littlest Sweet Shop

Happy Holidays!

I can't believe the year is almost over! This is the last entry for 2014. It has been a good year although the shop was closed throughout Spring and Summer when I had to move to a new house. Despite that - many new achievements were unlocked and I feel so blessed.

2015 will be an interesting year for Littlest Sweet Shop so make sure you visit regularly. I will be blogging for Sculpey and creating a tutorial for them in the month of July. I'm also currently developing a kawaii accessories line and some new Animal Doughnut characters will debut in the new year.

Make sure you follow me on Facebook to get instant updates directly. We almost have 400 fans!

For now, here are some Christmas scenes in 1/6 scale miniature to finish off 2014.

2014 was also made awesome by our clients, The Quarto Group, my family and all Littlest Sweet Shoppers. Thank you for keeping our little shop alive ;)

See you in 2015!! Have a happy new year!!

New in: Christmas 2014 Collection

Hello Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

Finally it's here! The new 2014 Christmas collection - including some upgrades on previous items. Find it all here in the Seasonal menu.

I have to apologise for the delay. I know it's too late to commission any of these but the ones here are currently in stock and will be sold on a first come first serve basis (while stocks last). If you are interested in purchasing them, please send me a direct message (my email address available on the FAQ). 

So our first new item for 2014 are these deluxe (upgraded) Gingerbread Houses. Why deluxe? I decided to make them bigger and better with more details! It just makes a very cute centrepiece for any Christmas party and the perfect decoration to make a home/diorama more festive. 

The size of the base is 5cm x 5cm and the height is around 5 cm tall. A good size to feed quite a number of dolls!

This Gingerbread house has a pink wafer door and rainbow roof shingles. Gingerbread men and candy canes not included with any Gingerbread houses
Chimney tips are swept with powdered sugar (and can be used to stash candy cane)
Hand-painted traditional design on the side of the houses. You can opt for 3 or 5 different coloured sweets for the roof shingles. The green glittered base is a yummy fondant which is also the house foundation 
The back of the houses have different designs. 2nd from the left is adorned with cute biscuits and 3rd from the left is decorated with pastel marshmallows
Some sugar cookies here have been re-done with a more traditional and realistic effect. These are timeless so you can use them every year! 

Snowmen cookies. Scarf and multicolour button detailing with coal eyes and mouth and carrot nose
Gingerbread men cookies. Couldn't decide to do eyes in white or black but you can choose whatever you prefer
Stoking cookie which can be personalised with the first letter of your doll's name. This makes super cool personalisation!
Christmas tree cookies in different styles
Some new and old sweets:

Winter green and red candy canes
Pink candy canes
Snowflake mints
Christmas tree candy cane
Xmas lollipops in winter green and red colours
Chocolate xmas pudding treats
Since Christmas is a big holiday, I thought I'd create bigger centrepieces. Here is a cute Christmas tree that can stand up in the middle of a banquet.

Last but not least, another big centrepiece in the form of chocolate! This whole sleigh has been handmade from chocolate and hand-painted with white chocolate. I will include at least 8 different presents in various colours that you can arrange on the sleigh. They are tiny cakes in the shape of presents! How Christmassy is that?

Little cakes in the form of presents included

Phew! That wraps it up for the 2014 Christmas collection. I actually plan to do more Christmas themed treats but I think they can wait for 2015 ;)

Come back next time to check out a Littlest Sweet Shop Christmas featuring Maya, Naru, Akiko and Yuffie. Enjoy the holidays :D

Bye for now ^_^

Good evening Littlest Sweet Shoppers! ^_^

Here's another quick update before the big reveal of Littlest Sweet Shop Christmas 2014 collection. All of these items are currently travelling to a lovely Swiss Littlest Sweet Shopper. Her dolls are going to have a fantastic Christmas with all of these treats so let's all hope it reaches her safely (and before Xmas!)
Recent commission. Everything on the table has been hand-made from scratch including boxes
If you see something that has not been listed in the menu - don't worry! It will debut together with all Christmas items ;)

MORE Animal Doughnuts!!

Hey Hey Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

Here's a short update since I can't debut new Christmas items yet. It's been a VERY busy November since my mum was staying over and we went to Manchester to visit relatives. I had quite a lot of commissions to complete as well and this one client from America has requested the whole set of Animal Doughnuts but for Lati Yellow doll (roughly 1/12 scale or I view them as the children of the 1/6 world).

Animal Doughnuts commission in custom size
Since I had to make these for a smaller scale dolls, I reduced the size around 30% and as you can see, even more tiny than a penny! These are the smallest Animal Doughnuts that I can offer as it's actually harder to make when the size is down-scaled. 

Size of custom size pig Animal Doughnut

One of the client's request was to have a Pikachu Animal Doughnut to replace the panda design. Isn't he just cute?
Pikachu Animal Doughnut. To debut VERY soon 
Chicken and Chick Animal Doughnuts
As a free gift, I offered the client 2 of these doughnut boxes so her dolls can keep them away safely when it isn't tea time yet.
Commission plus box free gift
Hopefully I will be back next week with many new items. Sorry again for the delay for the new Christmas items but it will be worth the wait ;)
