My Workspace... Making Bread

Baguettes, pumpernickel (a favourite of mine), brioche and rustic white loaves... I was busy with bread for much of yesterday and glad to have finished off all 60 loaves so I can move onto finishing some prep boards over at Pixie Dust!

Click on an image for a close up and don't forget to check my online store for these new items as they'll start to be listed soon... :)

My Workspace... Making Religieuse!

Made oh so many miniature religieuse pastries... my usual colours of pale pink, pistachio and violet, but also Halloween themed in dark chocolate, orange and deep purple.

The Halloween ones will be available at my online store very soon.

Also, check out what's happening over at my other blog - lots of new stock ready for the Tom Bishop miniature fair...

My Workspace... Building my Display!

Getting my display together for the Tom Bishop Miniature Fair... quite exciting! Just got a few more things to make and a few finishes to the display.

You might be interested in seeing the new items being made for this fair over at my Pixie Dust Miniatures blog too (here).

My Workspace... Making Cakes

The Tom Bishop Miniature Fair is fast approaching, and I am working my socks off (as we Brits say), getting as much finished as possible. I will be taking my all new Birthday Cakes, which includes my updated Pink Birthday Cake, Signature Hummingbird Cake and hopefully Chocolate and Red Velvet Cakes as well if I have time.
I'll share photos of these and make them available at my shop before long as well.

Here's some snaps of my progress thus far... :)

Bastille Day Discount

I can't believe I wasn't more prepared for Bastille Day! I have been so busy preparing for the Tom Bishop miniature show that I almost let this one slip me by. I would have loved to have made a Bastille Day range.

Oh well, instead, I'm offering a COUPON CODE for 15% off my entire Fabulously French Range. You can find this range here. (Note that all the images in this post are of my French range). So that's a big saving on Laduree cakes and croissants!

Enter the coupon code: BASTILLE1

Offer ends Sunday 17th Midnight (PST).

My Workspace... Candles, Candles, Candles...!

Oh my goodness, has it been all about candles lately or what?! Not only did I make 100 'Old Dripping Candles' over at Pixie Dust Miniatures last week, but in the past 3 days I've made 796 coloured birthday cake candles ready for the birthday cakes I'll be selling online and at the Tom Bishop miniature show in Anaheim later this month.

Yes - you heard right. 796 candles (in 6 different colours). I'm exhausted!

Don't forget, you can get my last ever Chocolate Fudge Birthday Cake (this design is being discontinued) at a massive 25% off over at my online store. Sale offer ends on Friday.

SUPER SALE on Choc Fudge Birthday Cake!

I've got only one left and since I am launching my new birthday cake range very soon, with all new designs, I'd like to clear out old birthday cake stock, including this lovely chocolate cake!

So.. I am knocking 25% off my Chocolate Fudge Birthday Cake and bringing the price down to only $29 from $39! This is for 5 days only and ends on Friday the 15th July. Available here.

Also, my apologies for the weird blogger problem which occurred yesterday! In case anyone caught it. Somehow managed to post half a Pixie Dust Miniatures post here on Hummingbird. Still have no idea how that happened... :)

My Workspace... Independence Day

Just finished sharing some photos of some new miniatures 'in-the-making' on my Pixie Dust Miniatures blog and thought I'd do the same here! I'm working all out to get ready for the Tom Bishop miniature show which is at the end of this month. If I have any Independence Day items left I'll take them along, but I doubt I'll make more if I run out before then.

Here's some photos I took along the way as I was making my Independence Day spread.

Happy Independence Day!

...a day late! I hope you all had a wonderful time yesterday. I really enjoyed it (so much so in fact that I haven't had the time until now to touch base with my computer). Saw the fireworks display over the Queen Mary in Long Beach. Amazing. Though not nearly as impressive a fireworks display as the one at Alexandra Palace, London for Bonfire Night. :)

Baking for the 4th!

With Independence Day on the way I've made some fun 4th of July cakes and patisserie chocolates. I only made 3 Limited Edition Independence Day cakes and 1 has already sold, so click here if you're keen not to miss out! There are also some chocolate Statues of Liberty and the photos don't really show it but the bases they're on are really pretty glitter card stock. Great for a fancy patisserie display and after all she's French-made!

In case you missed it, my 4th of July BBQ and picnic foods post is here.
Everything is one inch (1:12) scale and handmade by me from polymer clay.
