Kings Cake History

I love this time of year because it means spending time with family and lots and LOTS of baking! This time of year, my house is sure to be full of candies, cookies, tamales and something called Rosca de Reyes that is deeeeelicious! For those of you unfamiliar with it, here is a brief history:

In some Spanish cultures it is tradition to make a "Rosca de Reyes" or (king's cake) for the holiday season. It is traditionally eaten on January 6, during the celebration of the "Día de Reyes" (Wise Men Day). In most of Spain, Mexico, and sometimes Hispanic communities in the United States, this is the day when children get presents from the Three Wise Men (not from Santa). They leave a shoe outside, filled with hay or dried grass for the animals the Kings ride, before they go to bed along with a note. The Mexican “rosca de reyes” has an oval shape. For decoration, Mexican people use dried and candied fruits like figs, quinces or cherries to decorate it.

I hope you have enjoyed learning a little about my Christmas tradition's. And of course I had to make it mini along with some good old fashioned sugar cookies. Enjoy!

What's Christmas dinner without a turkey, ham or even pork leg?! My miniature group had a swap theme called Thanksgiving Feast and I was in charge of making the turkey. I was terrified of how it would turn out becuase I had never attempted to make one before. The first turkey came out ok, but I wasn't satisfied with the wings as they were MUCH too thick. My second turkey however, came out quite nicely as did my attempt at slicing one of them, or least I think it did, but I'll let you be the judge. Enjoy!

Remember the good ol' days when there was such an innocence about Christmas? When you still believed in old Saint Nick and you would help your mom bake cookies for him. I decided to reminisce and bring some of that innocence to my minis. Enjoy!

Devilish Delights

With Halloween right around the corner, I can't help but get in the mood to make some freakishly delicious minis. Some of these include Eerie Eyeball Empanadas, Eyeball Soup, Pumpkin Punch, Spider Web Cheesecake, Pumpkin Cheesecake, Bobbing for Eyeballs and my favorite, the Human Hand Candy Bowl. I have a few more entrees on the menu, but will have to wait untill the weekend to get to those. :)

Since my last post, I have been busy making, sorting and mailing out swaps in my miniature group, making new Halloween minis, which I will be posting at a later date, planning my upcoming wedding which is driving me CRAZY and finishing my sewing room box. I am very pleased with how it turned out. I was going for a modern look as opposed to the traditional Victorian look most opt for and I think I achieved it, but I'll let you be the judge. Enjoy and MINI HUGS!

Sewing Room Box

Hello Ladies and Gents! It's been a while since I've posted I know, but I have a good reason. I was in a car accident, totaled my car and was injured, so minis were out of my life for a while. But I'm BACK and have been working on a group project with some of my Yahoo Mini Group friends. We've been making a sewing room box and I've been having a blast and learning so much at the same time. This is my first time making a room box and isn't as hard as I always imagined it to be. In the process of making my box I decided that making the outside of my box look like a real notions box would look great and boy was I right. I LOVE how it turned out! Below you can see a few pictures of the transformation. I'll upload more pictures once I have added the inside accesories and it is completely furnished. Enjoy!

SUMMER HAS ARRIVED FOLKS! And with the hot summer weather, everyone turns to ice cream as a refreshing treat to cool them down. I, on the other hand, prefer a banana dipped in chocolate and then frozen! Mmmm :)

HOLA! Hope everyone is doing GREAT! I know I am, I mean this is going to be a 3 day weekend, which means more mini time for me. Woohoo! So with all the cakes I've been making, I figured I should make a prep board to go with them, so here it is! Enjoy!

For those of you that don't know, I am of Cuban decent and my grandmother still lives in Cuba. On my last trip there, I brought back some Cuban cigars, just to have, as I am not a smoker. They have been on my shelf for years now, and thought I would never have a use for them. Well boy was I wrong! How many of you have purchased those mini boxes of cigars to put in your dolls house study. I know I have and though they are very nice, they are just to plastic looking for me, so I decided to make my own. I took my REAL Cuban cigar and placed it in a plastic baggy with water so it would moisten the leaves and I would be able to unroll it. Once I did that, I carefully cut the leaves to a "mini" size, took a pinch of the tobacco and rolled a mini cuban cigar. I then added a bit of glue to the leaf, to keep it from unrolling. Here is the final product. ENJOY!

So I've been unpacking my minis from boxes and organizing my organizing my mini closet and came across a favorite of mine which I made some time ago and I thought I'd share it with you all. Mini Hugs!

Snack Time

There's nothing I love more then a simple piece of bread and CHEESE. Sometimes all that rich food just doesn't sound good. Or even a plain old tomatoe and mayo sandwhich. Anyways the other day, while I was in the kitchen fixing myself a cheese sandwich, I looked at the cutting board and decided it would look great in miniature, so here you have it! I added the jar of pickled onions just for show. LOL

Hey everyone, so last night I decided it was time to make another cheesecake. This time I made a strawberry swirl cheesecake. I'm not as pleased with it as I was with my Cherry Cheesecake, but then again, we are our toughest critics.

Hello fellow mini addics! I gotta tell ya, I LOVE my sushi rolls! My favorite place to eat is a place called Benihanas. They serve Japanese Cuisine. I visit them so often, that I even met my fiance there, who's a chef. Now I can have sushi anytime LOL. Anyways, I came up with the idea to make a Roombox with a scene from the Japanese Restaurant for my fiance and here is an example of some of the food I will be making. Here you have a complete sushi dinner which includes Onion Soup as the appetizer. Some Sashimi rolls with mustard dipping sauce accompanied by a vegetable roll and of course some saki to wash it down with. But Not too much saki or you'll be seeing double.

Easter is Almost Here!

So is everyone going to decorate their dollhouses for Easter? Unfortunately, my dollhouse isn't finished yet, but of course that hasn't stopped me from making some easter minis!

I'd love to see what others have made, so please share!

Wedding Bells in the Far Distance

Hey everyone! With my wedding approaching, I've been motivated to make more money. These little cheesecakes for example are a HIT on Ebay. Hopefully I can keep it up and save for my big day!
