Happy Birthday to Me!

It's my birthday tomorrow so I decided to make myself a cake! I gave up all sugar and desserts for Lent, so it doesn't matter to me that my birthday cake isn't edible. This miniature cake is made from polymer clay (what else?!) and in once inch (1:12) scale. The candles are extremely tiny, and if you read this previous blog post you'll know that my birthday candles have became far smaller, but I use a new technique which means that they are actually far less fragile and less likely to break than birthday cake candles I have made before.

The cake is a tall one - being 4 layers of vanilla sponge and pale blue icing. It's topped with confetti and of course tiny candles.

Since we're on the topic of candles, if that interests you, you might want to take a look at my realistic pillar candles which I've made for my film company (photos here) and which can of course be bought online here.

Don't miss out on new cakes which are gradually being added to the online Hummingbird Miniatures Etsy shop here!

PS Did you know that you get free delivery if you purchase from my Hummingbird Miniatures online store on the day of your birthday? Just email me a snap of your ID that shows your date of birth and I'll grant you a birthday code for free delivery, no matter where in the world you live. The purchase must be made on your actual birthday. If you've already made a purchase on your birthday and didn't use the code then just email me and I'll send a reimbursement for shipping via PayPal.

Have a great week everyone!
