Hello Wednesday All!  Today’s desk shows me working on Day 2 of my personal Make It In March challenge. (See the previous post for what I’m doing and why.)

There are several tutorials on YouTube for making a miniature pie using a bottle cap as the pie plate. They were so cute, I wanted to give it a try. Those teeny little blue dots were all rolled out individually, then pre-baked before being added to the pie.

One of the thing’s I’ve noticed about really well done miniature polymer clay food is that you have to look at the real thing (or a good photo) and not just rely on what you think it looks like.  Getting the colors and details right  is what makes these convincing.

Those cherry pie crust strips needed to be thinner, but I was running out of time and didn’t redo them. I also didn’t have time to add gloss glaze to the fillings before taking the photos. That will add a lot to the realism.

Dunno that I’ll make a career of food miniatures, but these sure will be adorable fridge magnets. :-)  Check back tomorrow to see what I make next.

And, if  you have some time, check out the desks of other creative folks from all over. It’s a weekly blog hop we like to call What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday and you can find all the details over at Julia’s.

Happy creating!

  1. so cute! Did not initially realise that they were so small. #35

  2. Wow!! I cannot imagine working so small!! Truly, it’s a talent – and no small feat – pun intended :D
    Happy WOYWW!
    no. 33

  3. WOW! So cute! I wouldn’t have the patience to make something that tiny even if my arthritis would let me! It will be lovely magnets for the frige too!
    Have a great week. Vickie #52

  4. Oh my goodness. However do you have the patience for such things? I don’t think that is for me at all, but I admire your hard work! well done.
    Have a great week.

    • There are different kinds of patience, I think. Like I mention in the previous post, there are some things I simply cannot be bothered with, like sanding to a high gloss finish. Ugh. But rolling out 200 itty-bitty blueberries? No problem.

  5. Brilliant! They remind me of my daughter who used to make similar tiny creations for her Sylvanians when she was about 8 or 9. She loves crafting even now and she is 33 !!! x Jo #60

  6. Those are amazing. They made me think of Beatrix Potter’s “Two Bad Mice”–who got into the fake miniature food in the dollhouse. Your pies need to be gracing the dining room table in a dollhouse. :D

  7. Unusually impressive. I used to be into miniatures, but lately I like going big. Your pies are adorable, even if the crust on the cherry is something I would make in a real pie (grin).

    Happy WOYWW from #1.

  8. They look great … How delicate they must be
    Amazing!

  9. These are amazing, people who collect doll’s house miniatures’ would love these. Thanks for visiting me earlier and happy crafting, Angela x 63

  10. They look like the real thing! Such detail, amazing.

  11. Now this looks like it takes so much patience, but the results are outstanding. Goodluck with your Make It March Challenge too! Happy WOYWW!

  12. Wow Sandy, I have NEVER seen anything like that before! Lol! They are totally adorable little pies and definitely good enough to eat, although I don’t suppose they would satisfy one for long!! Thanks for your lovely comment – Beatrice does look a little dink in that dress, doesn’t she!! My hubby and I will quite miss it when she no longer needs to wear it, and she turns back into a normal kitty again! I am still coughing but a lot better than I was.

    Happy belated WOYWW,
    Shoshi #83
