English cream tea in the garden

Hi again Littlest Sweet Shoppers!
It's been such a nice day so Naru and Akiko had some English cream tea in the garden. They are also enjoying new Scones from Littlest Sweet Shop which is available in the Bakery menu.

They also had some Marble cake which is now available in the Cake menu. Order 1 or more slices depending on the size of your party! Littlest Sweet Shop's Marble cake is made with rich butter cake and chocolate cake. Each design guaranteed to be unique!

(P.S: Loving the new Wedgwood tea set. The traditional English design makes it perfect for a garden tea party)

After tea they had ice cream from Littlest Sweet Shop. Thumbs up for delicious cool treats!

Commission Update

Morning Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

Here is an order for several items in 1:6 and 1:4 scale for a Littlest Sweet Shopper in Australia. She commissioned a 1:4 scale Bloody Rose Lollipop from the game Bayonetta. It was a bit complicated to make something new based on just 1 very low resolution photograph but I tried my best to make the lollipop and I'm glad she likes it. We do try our best to achieve 100% client satisfaction!

Other items commissioned:
1:4 scale Pocky in milk and chocolate
Gala Pork Pie
Turkish Delight
White Strawberry Shortcake and Tiramisu
That's all for today. I still have tons of new things that I would like to list in the shop's menu but I will be away on holiday this week so hopefully I can do it by next week!

We also just reached 1000 likes on Facebook and another 3 more followers on Instagram to reach 1000. I will be doing a big giveaway to celebrate this milestone and 1 lucky Littlest Sweet Shopper will receive tons of miniatures from us!! Make sure to follow us on social media to participate.

New items: Take-away Salads and Colourful Ice Cream

Good afternoon Littlest Sweet Shoppers!
Today's new item is a take-away bowl of Littlest Sweet Shop salads because we don't just make sweets and candy! You can find the Chicken and Prawn salad in our Brunch menu.
It comes in Small and Large containers which are hand-made by us using a vacuum forming machine. You can even order them sealed with a transparent film so you can take it on picnics!  
Salads and bottled water - our healthiest item!
These are definitely the healthier lunch option for your dolls. Appreciate all of the fine details including the plastic bowl. It is transparent enough for you to see all of the contents!
Hand-made take-away bowls are very transparent.
The salad comes with loose pieces of miniature food ingredients for extra detailed cuteness!
Large Prawn Salad: Lettuce, button mushroom slices, cherry tomatoes, steamed prawns, hard-boiled egg, black olives, cubed cheddar and lime wedge
Small Chicken Salad: Lettuce, chicken pieces, lemon wedge, hard-boiled egg, cherry tomatoes, button mushroom, sweet-corn, black olives, cubed cheddar and grated parmesan
We updated the Ice-Cream menu with more colourful ice-cream. The Fruit Ice-Lollies now come in Ombré colours and filled with real berries.

Our all new Japanese menu featuring 和菓子Wagashi (Japanese Sweets)

こんにちはリトリストスイートショッパ❗️Konnichiwa Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

We are so pleased to introduce an all new Japanese menu here at Littlest Sweet Shop! I am a super huge fan of Japanese culture and the girls are actually Japanese (even though we all live in England) so it is about time we have some real (miniature) Japanese food for sale.

Today we are listing the 和菓子Wagashi treats which are traditional Japanese Sweets in the Japanese menu. We will eventually fill up this menu with other Japanese food such as sushi and bento sets so make sure you stick around for that!
Littlest Sweet Shop's 和菓子Wagashi
Our first new item is どら焼きDorayaki. If you grew up reading Doraemon manga like I did, you will know what it is. Doraemon will do anything for Dorayaki - a fluffy mini-cake (like pancakes) filled with Anko paste which is made from Azuki beans. It is almost like a sweet red-bean paste.

I hope Littlest Sweet Shop's Dorayaki will make all the robot cats crazy since we only used the finest ingredients to produce them. We can even make yours using different types of fillings like chocolate, strawberry cream or even cheese! Usually they are individually wrapped in clear plastic in the shops so you can also request us to package them for you.

Our next new item is called たい焼きTaiyaki. It is basically a fish-shaped cake with Anko filling inside. Just like the Dorayaki, you can also request other types of filling instead. Unfortunately it does not come in 1/12 scale but it is available in 1/3 scale!!

Littlest Sweet Shop's Taiyaki has a cute fish pattern on both sides so it actually looks like a 3D fish! It is common to see Taiyaki made and sold in Japanese festivals.

Also filled with Anko paste. We try to make it look as authentic as the real thing!
The last item for the day is 花見だんごHanami Dango. だんごDango is a type of mochi dumpling shaped into balls and skewered onto a stick. Mochi is usually very soft and fluffy and sweet. We made Hanami Dango which comes in 3 colours and usually eaten during Hanami (Cherry-Blossom viewing).
Hanami Dango should be served with Green Tea

That's all for now. We hope that you enjoyed our new collection of Japanese food miniatures. Come back again next week for even MORE new items!

Akiko wants to try out the new Hanami Dango because of the pretty colours

New Ice Cream for summer!

Good morning Littlest Sweet Shoppers

We have tons of new things for July but we are going to debut just the new ice cream first since it is summer!
Everything here is now available in the Ice Cream menu so choose a tasty treat that will help your dolls cool down in the upcoming warm weather. 

Our first new item is the waffle cone. These are brand new to Littlest Sweet Shop and slightly bigger than our standard sugar cones from before. The waffle pattern is very detailed and you won't find a better quality in miniature!

Our waffle cones can also be hand dipped in chocolate, white chocolate or any other delicious dip! You can even choose from an assortment of sprinkles to add more crunch!

Of course if you think that is a bit overkill, we also offer plain waffle cones. Just add ice cream!

Our next new item is called Taco Ice Cream! It's quite a genius invention - crispy wafer shaped like a taco shell is filled with creamy ice cream and the top is covered in chocolate! A generous helping of nuts covers the the top to add more crunch and flavour! It is amazing and if you are a big fan of ice cream like I am, make sure you try it! This Littlest Sweet Shop version is made for 1/6 dolls.

Taco Ice Cream can be dipped in chocolate or white chocolate and topped with various types of toppings (nuts, chocolate shavings)
Our next new item is the Cake Cone! We usually use it for soft-serve type ice cream but you can also order normal scoops with them!

This type of cone is similar to the ones you get in McDonald's and each of the cone can stand perfectly on its own. We even offer a chocolate dipped soft-serve ice cream and we will definitely expand this range so make sure you come visit us again!

Finally, I managed to take better photos of our Snow Cones which is also appropriate for summer time, especially scorching hot days! I just got this cute Rilakkuma ice shaving machine so we will also be making shaved ice treats in the future.

That's all for now. We have more new things to list in the shop including an all new Japanese menu! However the weather gods seem to be angry with us since we are still waiting for summer in England. All we are getting now is rain and dark clouds almost every day so I'm hoping to be able to take photos of all the new items when the sun decides to come out again.
