Make it: Miniature Sponge Cake & Pie

Make it: Miniature Sponge Cake & Pie

Miniature Sponge Cake
flat, expandable sponges, yellow and pink
Folkart - wicker white paint
craft glue
mini ribbons
mini beads
large button

1. Trace the bottom of a paint bottle onto flat sponges (2 on the yellow and 1 on the pink). Cut out circles and glue the three together with the "icing" (pink) layer in the middle .

2. Cut a small triangle from the circle (this will be a piece of cake). Wet the sponges, let expand and set aside to dry.

3. Paint the top and sides (not the inside) of the cake with white craft paint and let dry. Using glue, attach ribbon (frosting) around the outer edge and glue beads in a daisy pattern to the top of the cake.

Miniature Pie Materials:
bottle caps
tan felt
red seed beads (or color to match fruit of choice)
Quick Hold craft glue

1. Cut a thin strip of tan felt to fit the inside rim of the bottle cap and glue in place.

2. Put a small amount of glue on the inside bottom of the cap, fill cap with seed beads and cover with glue.

3. Cut very thin strips of tan felt; crisscross felt strips over the beads to form a woven crust.

    Oh, yay! I love miniatures, and these are great... it's a trick of looking at things a little differently.

    If you want to do this stuff with polymer clay, consider checking out Angie Scarr's work (if you haven't before) -- it's amazing.

  6. These are so cute. My mom is cleaning out storage and sent me all of my Barbies. I might have to make them some snacks after their long journey!

  9. Cathie,
    I made these from your tutorial. Oh my, they turned out so cute!!! I gave them to my Hubby for his Birthday as a whimsical little gift. He thought it was a cute idea.

    This is so cute! I found some antique bottle caps in a second hand shopand made some earings, a ring, and when I saw this, I had to put my own spin on it! I made a little pumpkin pie for my mom and she loved it! I'm thinking of making it a magnet...
