A new store and some baked goods

Hi, all!  Well, as I mentioned, I'm currently up in Idaho which has given me some time to work on little baked goods.  Before I get to that though, I want to show you what I got at Handcrafted for You (  I didn't even know there was a miniature store in that area (Oregon City).  I just so happened to be reading American Miniaturist and saw the listing when we were only five minutes away.  So, we stopped, and of course I had to buy a few items: little glass jars, a desk lamp, and glassware.  If you're in the area, come stop by her store!

I've been mini baking quite a lot.  I'm glad I decided to bring my clay!  Earlier, I posted my two-layered cake and my bundt cake.  Yesterday alone I made the lemon cake (my new favorite) and a slice, my friend's famous Vanilla Bean Cake with chocolate frosting, apple pie (those crossing strips were hard to do!), chocolate pudding, a loaf of bread, a plate of chocolate fudge, a doggie bone (which was approved by my boyfriend's dog, Missy), chocolate covered cookies, and peanut butter cookies.  Today, I made the little dresser from a kit I got.  I had to make some adjustments for the drawers to open, but it turned out fine.  I'm still not quite sure how I'm going to paint it, but I'm thinking of a Better Homes and Gardens inspiration.

Anyway, I think I'll do more mini baking today.  Any suggestions?  There's a Better Homes and Gardens baking magazine upstairs, so I may take a look at that for ideas.

Hope you like the goodies!

P.S.  Though I've been doing miniatures in some form or another for about 10 years, I haven't really sold my work.  I'm interested in starting to sell.  Any advice on what selling sites to use?  Thanks!


  1. Angela, I have a shop on etsy and have been very happy there. There are some wonderful miniaturists there and I've made some great new friends.

  2. first off all, you've made such cute, tasty looking mini food! I really love it! makes me want to eat it!
    second, I also think etsy would be the easiest way to go, that way you don't have to built a website and etsy has many other benefits.

  3. Everything looks fabulous! I am so scared to try mini - foods. I just know it would be batches and batches of ruined clay - haha! Would you try emailing me at so I can know where to send your Christmas swap? Somehow me emailing you isn't going through. Hugs - ara

  4. Hi Angela,

    Your mini baked goods look very edible and realistic. I guess the usual places to sell is Ebay or Etsy.
