After years of making tiny clay things for dollhouses, I finally got to try my hand at the real deal... fondant and gum paste. I whipped up these tiny sample candy veggies for Wendy's cupcakes; another Alchemy bid at Etsy. This first picture has the samples I sent her to choose from. The red cabbage, cob of corn, tomato, cauliflower, and artichoke were made from gumpaste. Gumpaste is a little trickier. We'll see which kind Wendy chooses. What do ya think?

Wilton's new fondant works just like regular clay with a similar texture. The regular flavor tastes pretty good... "vanillaish" but can be flavored otherwise. Now I'm on a literal roll! Going to offer edible sculptures in my shops. Always wanted my sculpture to have a purpose and now it does; just wait until you see the new things I've come up with!
This second picture contains all the tiny veggie ideas I tried. See the differences in size? The first batch was too small to gain appropriate attention atop a cupcake. This is a whole new world of fun.
