Miniature Food on my Desk

Recently Jennifer Buxton did a blog post on the miniature food Lauren Mauldin has on her work desk. This isn't the first time miniature food has been discussed on Jennifer's blog. Or mine really. The model horse hobby is filled with people that enjoy miniatures. Miniature horses, miniature tack and sometimes just anything tinier than normal sized. I collect miniature food as well but I am very particular about the pieces.
This is the miniature display case on my desk and my collection of miniature food (so far). All of the pieces are artist made from polymer clay. For me to add a food piece to my collection it has to be something I like, obviously, super realistic and priced well. I have no desire to pay someone $50 for a plate of cheese and crackers (they don't take THAT long to make). Plus the lower priced items are often from lesser known artists and I have always enjoyed supporting new artists as well as all artists in general.I made the soup, the ice cream sundae and the pancakes.
I also have this tiny cake made to look like my wedding cake. The artist charges about half to 2/3 less than any other artist that copies cakes and she did an amazing job! It's just about an inch and a half tall.
   I enjoy miniatures of all kinds and I always have. Miniature food is my most recent choice for collecting but I am always on the lookout for other cool miniatures. Things that are smaller than usual are just cute.

Hi! I just started a breyer blog called
and I put a link of your blog on my blog, so people can click it if they want to. Is that okay with you??? I can take it off if you don't want it. Thanks so much, and I really covet your dolls!

I love your collection. That cake is just wonderful!

I just received my first Re-ment order yesterday. Eventually I'll take pictures for my blog, but here's the scoop: The food is nice, but it's not nearly as realistic as the artist produced food in your collection. HOWEVER, the little accessories accompanying the food are just awesome. Seriously, I squee'd over the parts and pieces. I'll definitely buy more!

Alyssa, I don't mind having a link on your blog at all :)

Jennifer, I LOVE the re-mint stuff and have seriously considered having some of the little "extras" for my collection. And many other random miniatures made from plastic so I can throw them in a prop box without worry that they will get broken. I've been eyeballing some more stuff recently.

These are AMAZING!!! I was blown away by what I saw on Saturday at your table - especially the tiny bowl of soup!!!! I would love to learn how to make this sort of thing! (Though when I'd fit it in, God knows! I barely have time for customizing horses now!! :(

Michele if you ever want to learn to make tiny food take a road trip up to my house one day and I will show you. It's not as hard as it looks :)
