New products and new updates for February

Hey Hey Littlest Sweet Shoppers!!

Welcome back to Littlest Sweet Shop, the home of miniature food so let's check out some new stuff.

Maya behind the deli counter
Yes! More protein-packed items from the Deli menu. These come directly from our butcher so you get fresh quality meats.

Make sure your dolls cook the sausages first before serving it up. Also a great prop for your deli counter or just something to sizzle in a frying pan. If you order more than 1 sausage, we can deliver it to you as a string sausage.

Our pork sausages are blended with the finest herbs and spices

Here is another new deli item, a quintessentially English snack. We finally have some Gala slices that can be served cold so they are perfect for picnics or more commonly as a popular pub food.

Our Gala slices are made from the finest pork mince, surrounded by pork jelly and encrusted with short-crust pastry. Each slice will have a perfectly round hard-boiled egg in the middle.

2 Gala slices
That's enough savoury foods for now. Let's balance it out with some cake!

Here is a great cake for a birthday party. It comes complete with candles (or have them burnt out if you choose). Technically the diameter is more suited for 1/12 scale but it will also be applicable as a small 1/6 scale cake. Available now in the Cake menu.

Let's move on to some new updates on current products. Our first update is on our Mr Softee ice cream. It's now available with a combination of 2 ice cream flavours. We are calling this Mr Softee Stripes. Mr Softee also comes in every shade of pastel loveliness so make sure you check them out in the Ice Cream menu.

Sweet potato and vanilla Mr Softee Stripes
Mint and vanilla Mr Softee Stripes. Strawberry and vanilla Mr Softee Stripes
Here is a cherry pie with one slice missing so you can see the juicy cherry filling. Available in the Bakery menu.

Our last update is for the Brunch menu. I actually made this months back and never realised it was never listed until yesterday on Pancake Day. The only thing wrong with this pancake is that bacon is missing! (we will sort that out soon ;))

3 Stack pancakes with butter and maple syrup.

Last but not least, we finally have a stock of pizza boxes for our Pizzeria. Available for medium and large pizzas.

That's all folks! Please visit again soon as we will debut Mexican TACOS!

Making of IKEA Ivar 1/6 scale Shelf furniture

Happy weekend Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

We have been busy here in the dollhouse. The dollhouse (PuppenHaus) is the home of Maya, Naru, Akiko and Yuffie.

A delivery from IKEA has just arrived! Akiko carries the box into the living room. She will need some help to assemble it.

Maya: Hey, what is that?
Akiko: Our new pantry has just arrived. Here, come help me assemble it

Typically Ikea

Akiko opens the box carefully and checks the contents first. She makes sure that everything is in check before starting the DIY process.

Maya: Screw in the metal brackets first. Do you have the 4 screws?
Akiko: Check! 

Miniature screws
Akiko uses a special screwdriver supplied by IKEA. They fit the miniature screws perfectly!

Lastly, slide the shelves in one by one, starting from the lowest shelf working your way up.

Maya: Only 2 more to go
Akiko: We are almost there :D
Akiko: Yeay we did it!
Maya: It looks great! Thumbs up*
This is my second miniature Ivar shelf. I decided to use this as the kitchen pantry/storage. Doesn't it just look so realistic?

The groceries are mostly re-Ment and some Megahouse miniatures.

See you back in the Sweet Shop next week!

Protein Packed NEW ARRIVALS! Pizzeria now open

Ciao Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

Today we are introducing our new Pizzeria menu! Littlest Sweet Shoppers have requested more protein in their daily dolly diet so I've added pizzas and more pork products to the deli menu.

Let's introduce our pizza range first. We offer 6 different variants (that's 6 different PIZZAS!) for you to choose from. It comes in 2 sizes, a medium (can serve 6 dollies) and a large (can serve 8 dollies). I think the medium pizza looks great for a scene with 2 dolls (romantic dinner maybe?) and the large pizza is definitely a must for any party and if you have a large dolly family.

5 Whole Littlest Sweet Shop Pizzas from the Pizzeria menu
Pizzas are now listed in the Pizzeria menu.

Here are the 6 different Pizza variants to entice you:

1.    Seafood Pizza Pizza with tomato base and Mozzarella.Topped with prawns, calamari, green capsicum, pineapple chunks and sprinkled with crushed black peppercorns. Drizzled with prawn cocktail sauce.

Whole Medium Seafood Pizza

2.    BBQ Chicken Pizza Pizza with tomato base and Mozzarella.Topped with grilled chicken breast chunks, onions, mushroom, and a sprinkling of chilli flakes. Drizzled with smokey BBQ sauce.

3.   Ham and Pineapple Pizza Tomato sauce base. Topping: Cheddar cheese, ham slices, pineapple chunks, green capsicum, mushroom, oregano sprinkle

4.    Four Cheese Pizza

Whole Medium Four Cheese Pizza

5.    Pepperoni Pizza Tomato sauce base. Topping: Cheddar cheese, pepperoni, black olives, green capsicum, mushroom. Sprinkled with oregano

A large pizza is definitely eye-catching since it's packed with a lot of delicious toppings.

6.   Salami Pizza.Pizza with tomato base. Topping: Cheddar cheese, salami, green capsicum, black olives, sliced mushroom and a sprinkle of oregano

Large whole Salami pizza

 You can order a large pizza with 8 slices. Perfect for sharing.

This is the size comparison between the large (salami) pizza and the medium (seafood) pizza:

Large whole pizza & medium whole pizza
We will eventually roll out more new Italian food for the Pizzeria menu so make sure you come visit us regularly ^_^

I am also making boxes for the pizza and will list it as soon as I can! 

If you don't need too much pizza (or on a diet), you can also opt for a single slice of pizza.

Our salami comes in two variants and can be found in the Deli menu.
Grab a few slices or even a whole salami!

We also have more new arrivals in the deli menu! These are English Pork Pies in 2 different sizes. A large one should be able to serve 4-5 dolls and a mini pork pie is enough for an individual serving.

Mini pork pies. Perfect for supper!

I think that's all the savoury food for now! We are after all, a Littlest Sweet Shop so I am ending this post with something sweet.

Here is the final 2015 addition in our Valentine's Day menu - Heart sweets!

They are really mini and come in 4 colours. They were tricky to make but I'm quite satisfied with the outcome. These are resin-based candy. Now available in the Seasonal menu

That's all for today. See you again soon!
