Have your CAKE!

My first Attempt at a layer cake for our Girls- Kit, Ruthie & Samantha ( among other friends too!)
I learned a lot about getting the clay as smooth as you can and maybe not making as soft this next time. Brielle ( my 8 yr old) did some of the cake texture on the slice so, it's a little rough but, she did a pretty good job.

 liked this tutorial for this cake- i added the strawberries to give it some extra FRESHNESS!

making POLYMER CLAY FOODS for your doll

there are so many sites and blogs and youtube Videos out there teaching you how to make clay foods. I have found Toni Ellisons to be pretty spot on! Her's are mini but, you an adjust size to your AG doll.

Here's our first attempts at some clay foods...
this is our CLAY salad bowl- we found the small bowls at Dollar tree, watched
the lettuce leaf tutorial on pinterest and made some tomatoes, carrots and cucumbers. The 
bowl are heat resistant and i baked it all in there then applied a clear enamel paint so it stayed put and
gave it a nice glossy fresh tossed look!

 Our Pineapple Fro-Yo- also found on Toni Ellison's youtube channel.
 i figured that fortune cookies would be easy for the girls to do with me- i would have picked a better clay color though. And another chocolate fro- yo with cookie, sprinkles and sparkling cherry!
My 6 yr. old LOVES pickles and so we made these together!
We are learning slowly but, having fun making these fun faux foods!
