Hello Littlest Sweet Shoppers

I'd like to announce that the Christmas store is now open! Just visit our Etsy page:
New and exclusive items in the Etsy store includes new 1:6 scale Gingerbread Houses - each unique and one-of-a-kind. They are all maxed out in luxurious toppings and decorations. Everything was hand-made to create tasty perfection in playscale (suitable for fashion dolls such as Barbie).
2019 Littlest Sweet Shop Gingerbread Houses
Each house is fully decked not just on the front but also on the sides and at the back. Each detail such as Japanese style sprinkles and pole candy has been meticulously recreated to add realism.

This is the Cabin Gingerbread House. It's a more traditional style candy house with red and white candy. The roof shingles are Necco Wafers which is a type of candy used in Gingerbread House making in America.

Halloween at Littlest Sweet Shop

Happy Halloween Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

This year I made some Jack o'lanterns which are actually hollow and you can also learn how to make it on our YouTube channel. But of course you can always order them from our Dollhouse Minis menu and they come in any shape, size and even design!

These miniature pumpkins make perfect decoration on the 1:12 scale dollhouse entrance

There are also normal pumpkins which haven't been carved in our Fruits and Veg menu. Also available in any shape or size (and various colours too).

That's all for now. Hope you are having a great Halloween. Harumi is dressed as a nurse this year and we had a Halloween party in the dollhouse. She collected so much candy and insisted on counting them before bed.

Mix your miniatures with our own selection of hand-made models

Happy Halloween!

Commission Update(s)

Hello Littlest Sweet Shoppers

I did a few commissions this month and here are some of the highlights.

This one is rather special since I developed everything including the cup artwork. The tropical punch Slurpee was always my favourite from 7-Eleven so it was fun recreating it. The crushed ice looks real and wet! Pictures taken with other 1:6 scale Littlest Sweet Shop products. I'm also making more Slurpees in different colours to list on Etsy.  
1:6 scale 7-Eleven purchases. Slurpee is the tastiest beverage to cool you down always!
Vacuum-formed cup lid. Paper cup.
The next Littlest Sweet Shopper ordered a variety of fruits and cereal.
Oranges, peeled oranges, an apple and a bowl of cereal
The order included a small bowl of cereal (Fruit Loops) and a spoonful of cereal with milk as well. The bowl was also hand-made using clay and the spoon is a vintage Sindy miniature. It wasn't supposed to be in 1:6 scale but slightly smaller.
Very small bowl of milk with Fruit Loops. 
Maya is obviously too big to model the bowl of cereal with milk! However she was the only one available at that time. Look how dainty the spoon looks like in her hands.

Client also requested milk with the cereal on a spoon.
Last but not least an order of oranges in various styles. This is one of our best-selling fruits of all time and I'm glad many dolls get to enjoy it. 
Commissioned various styles of oranges
That's all for this evening. I'm currently working hard to stock up new items on Etsy so make sure you be the first to know once they go live! Each item is one of a kind so if they sell out, it might not be restocked! There will also be a special Halloween Youtube tutorial that I hope to upload before Halloween itself even though I'm very busy right now. I only have one commission to do before I go to Paris for holiday and hope to debut more new items soon.

New arrivals! Moon Pies and Mooncake Gift Boxes

Hello Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

Can't believe it's end of the month already! Here are some new arrivals for September. I went to the Lakes for a week so had little time to create any miniature this month.

Just like the Twinkies, I decided to make the miniature cakes to go into the Moon Pie boxes. I have to admit I have never eaten a Moon Pie and I think I made them more like Choco Pie instead (with fluffy cake). The wrapped ones are now available on our Etsy store but you can also commission Moon Pies with a bite taken off. Available to commission now from the Groceries menu.

Available in Chocolate
Chocolate wrapped Moon Pies. Perfect for shop fronts in miniature.
Strawberry Moon Pies
Banana Moon Pies
Made perfectly to scale for 1:6 dolls

When I started making packaging for our products, I wanted to make packaging for all the other things I've made as well. Our Mooncakes have been around for several years but now you can also order a cute box for it! It can fit up to 4 pieces and I managed to debut them on the day of the Mid-Autumn festival on Instagram.

Cute gift-box in pastel colour theme. 
Can fit 4 mooncakes per box. The perfect gift! Graphic Designed by Freepik.
I have a few commissions running right now but there will be updated churros debuting this week on our social media channels so make sure you are there! I will try my best to get the Etsy Christmas shop up and running. There will be Christmas miniatures AND more new items so you can really shop 'til you drop!

Commission Update: Candy inspired by Dylan's Candy Bar

Hi again Littlest Sweet Shoppers

Here is a commission I made for one of our most loyal client! She always requests new things that I haven't made and I try my best to develop them for her.
Commission for client in 1:6 scale. Excluding bowls. Edamame, Loose Cornflakes, Cornflakes box, Berry Candies and Dylan's Candy Bar Gold collection chocolate
The first candy she wanted were also known as Candy Berries which are traditionally made in red and black colours. However Dylan's Candy Bar sells them in 5 different colours/flavours! It's also our new Pick'n mix selection.
Candy Berries
Tiny gummy candy developed for client
These are almond coated chocolate made to look like tiny cocktail olives. Inspired by Dylan's Candy Bar's Gold Collection, they are literally gourmet miniature sweets! Remember, we can always re-create any of your favourite sweets.
Inspired by Dylan's Candy Bar creations.
Edamame beans are loose and you can order enough to fit a miniature bowl. They are tiny and simple but great for Japanese dining scenes. Also available now in our Japanese menu.

That's all for now! I will post new arrivals for September tomorrow but there are only a few items. However no new miniature is too small to debut!

There will be many great things next month including a lot of new items for the Etsy store and even more new arrivals! Make sure you visit Littlest Sweet Shop again in October.

August New arrivals: Bear Paw Ice cream, wafer ice cream and Milky Way candy bars

Hi Littlest Sweet Shoppers!!

It is finally the end of summer but my dolls are still enjoying our wide range of ice cream and sun! Since there are 2 new ice cream to debut I thought it would be nice to take photos with the new ice cream stand I got for Christmas.
Akiko and Yuffie enjoying some ice cream during their summer holidays
First new item is our Bear Paw popsicles! It is probably too big for little 10 year old Harumi-chan. However it's made from the creamiest ice cream making it irresistible AND cute! Choose from vanilla or chocolate with strawberry ice cream detail. 
Harumi buys 2 Bear Paw popsicles
Akiko is enjoying Neapolitan and pink popsicles

We also have a new type of wafer sandwich. This has plain vanilla ice cream inside but has also been coated in chocolate for extra pleasure!

Last but not least - new candy bars!! This time in the style of Milky Way which is basically chocolate coated nougat. They are now available in the Etsy store or commission your individual bars which reveal the nougat inside!

Nougat coated in chocolate
Before signing off, just a reminder that there are still spaces for my CMW Miniatures workshop on 19th and 20th October. On the Saturday, you will be learning not 1, not 3 but 9 different coloured lollipops so you can make enough for your own little sweet shop! I will also be demonstrating how to make some simple sweets to fill up the jars. Please visit https://www.cmwminiaturesworkshops.co.uk/ for more information.
Learn 9 different lollipops in my upcoming workshop at the CMW 2019 in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire
Thank you so much for still being here with us! Sorry for the lack of updates, I have to admit I have been enjoying my own summer holidays for this whole month but will finally be uploading a new YouTube video tonight.
