Project: Let's bake!


I was wandering around on Pinterest and Youtube for some days ago and found some cute tutorials and pictures of donuts, made for jewelry. I thought that the size is a perfect fit for dolls, mostly Barbie, Monster High and similar. I had some Fimo clay at home, in brown and some pastel colors that would work for the donut and the frosting. Even if the brown is rather dark, it can work as a chocolate donut with frosting.


Used my brush tip smoothen the shapes.
The process is no rocket science, I made some tiny balls of the brown one and then I made a hole with a suitable brush tip. After that I made the edges a bit smoother and baked the donuts in the oven at 130°C and for about 8 minutes.



While the donuts cooled off, I started to pick out colors for the frosting and used my fingers to make it as flat as I could. Too tiny for a rolling pin. After placing the frosting, some brushes of liquid Fimo clay and decorations on top it was time to bake again. Same degree, but not for so long time as the donuts. I think I had them in the oven for approximately 5 minutes. Total amount of time for these tiny things should not get above 15 minutes. I want to make it more between 10-12 minutes in total. But it all depends on the oven and size of the thing you want to bake.

Made a little paper box too, for the donuts.
This was a fun and easy project for those sunny (or even rainy) Sunday afternoons. The level is easy and you can make as many as you want. Time and effort are small. 

And here comes some more edited slightly blurry pictures! The daylight over here is more like a empty paper bag during night time. Especially winter time.

Tea party! Thanks to Alasse for the tiny pots, cups and plates.

Vera, my OOAK Cyclops, is showing you one of her favourites.

Vera is one project I had during January. She was fun to mod, paint and make. 

A yummy donut!

But wait...who is this?

Ah, it is wild Sage. She seems to have a favourite too. The same one as Vera. 

Tea party over and what a mess.
Have a wonderful new week!

  3. Oh these look so delicious and real. I love how you made them. And what a great scale for your dolls. The photos look good too. I particularly love that last one when all there is left is crumbs and empty cups.

    1. Thank you so much!
      I watched a YouTube video for tips and tricks and an easy way was to use the things you have home. Special things are not needed, so at that point I was happy about my brush tip and white paper, to keep the clay clean. :)
      I like the last photo too, inspired by my own tea times and how it can look. :D
