Happy Halloween!

It's been a busy week preparing for Halloween (both in real life and in the mini-town.)

The baker has been busy baking Halloween treats.

My 6 year old daughter and I made these orange spider web cakes based on the American Miniatures Dollhouse magazine issue #138 article by Natalia Antonelli on how to bake a wicked webbed cake.  We simplified it a lot (because we were also playing with Playdoh with my 2 year old at the same time), but we are still pleased with our first attempt.  We used orange and black Fimo clay and then painted it with Clay Charm polish for a glossy look.  We have to work on our making of the little spiders - they're very tricky. :)

Here is my daughter's Halloween party scene in her dollhouse with the cakes (she used black and orange construction paper to set the scene):

And here are my witches having a Halloween party:

The littlest witch has performed a spell making a rather large rat.  The mouse is trying to escape.

And here is the party food with the magically pouring tea:

Happy Halloween!

  3. I love the cakes you and your daughter did! How wonderful to work together on minis, I hope to do that more when my daughter gets older =)
    Your scenes are wonderful and I really love the magic tea pot!

  4. Thank you so much for all the warm comments! I am also so happy when my daughter shows an interest in dollhouses and miniatures. I am not sure she is as interested in dollhouses as I was when I was her age. But I like to watch her and my son play with their dollhouse (although last time my daughter had her girl doll live in one of the Waterside apartments by herself, while the parents lived upstairs!
