I’m pleased to do a review on a recent fake sweets book that I got hold of. The book title is “Sweets Motif Woderland”. Published in 2010, it is written by 4 distinguised japanese clay sweets artists: Mayu Sekiguchi, Toneko Nakajima, Yukari Kumagai, and Miwa Tani.
This book is very comprehensive with full colored pages. Even though this particular copy I have is translated to Mandarin by the publisher, but rest assured that the quality remains the same. The first few pages of the book lists out all the materials that are being used in the book, alongside with basic techniques of using air dry clay. This craft book is suitable for intermediate to advanced crafters.
For a full comprehensive list of what are the items you will get to learn, you may refer here.
I’ve browsed many clay sweets craft books up to this point, and can say that this is one of the best in terms of both quantity and quality of projects taught! And they do really show step by step details for each project, with colored photos.
I must point out a few of my personal favourites that stood out. They are – Charlotte cake, Dome cakes, Mousse desserts, chocolate decorations. You will know why if you purchase the book to look at it yourself! They look so realistic and good!
I’m dying to try making some of these sweets myself.
You can now get a copy of the book here.

I finished making this christmas ring the other day. Featuring a christmas bundt cake, it was topped with plentiful holly leaves, and red berries. This piece makes me smile, because it reminds me that christmas is on the way!
There are a few changes to how I did the christmas bundt cake. And I love the most recent way definitely. Just more detailed and overall looks more defined
I love it when I am able to better my creations each time I work on them after a long absence.
You can find my Christmas Bundt Cake Ring over at my shop here.
I’ve just finished creating this dollhouse miniature kitchen island table and can’t wait to show you all. I tried a new colour too, which has a beautiful name called “Dressing Table Blue”.
I was in the mood to create this because I had some materials sitting in my bag of to-do for a while now. After I completed a white dessert hutch for a customer, and without breaking the flow, I continued working on this. I find it so much easier to continue with something of a similar concept after not touching it for months.
The blue kitchen island table is cute in a way. But I think due to its height, it would be more suitable as a side kitchen island table. It’s a little shorter than the white dessert hutch. See below photo.
With 3 surfaces available, there is ton of space to put things! There is another neat thing here. The side of the blue kitchen island table has a handle which you can hang kitchen towels or pots if you like.
I’m quite sure this will be a treasure for someone’s dollhouse kitchen!
You can purchase this now in my shop under Miniature Kitchen section.
I wonder why it took me so long to release this set of cute clay earrings featuring macarons in Royal Purple. The shade of Royal Purple is actually the most popular shade in my purple macaron earring series.
It’s not that the other shades are not beautiful, but I am starting to learn that when you release a range of dark to light colour family tones, most people tend to choose something “safe” or “in between”. Nothing too dark or too light. So, that is the trend I am seeing. Of course, there are still some customers who will give the dark shades or lightest shade a go!
Because Royal Purple is the most popular shade, I decided that I will release them in dangling earrings as well, so there is another option for folks to pick if they really adore this Royal Purple shade.
This magnificent shade of Royal Purple Dangling Macaron Earrings are now available in my shop! https://www.etsy.com/listing/163447732/dangling-macaron-earring-in-royal-purple?ref=pr_shop
My newest dollhouse miniature clay food creation is the vanilla flower and bean pods In Singapore, you may be able to find the bean pods in local baking stores. But I’ve not been to any baking stores for a long time since I don’t bake So if you were wondering how I sculpted the miniature clay version, I actually looked at pictures from google while working on them.
I am a big fan of vanilla and love all things vanilla. It has such a pure, exquisite taste – I just find it heavenly!
This miniature clay vanilla flower and bean pods will be part of my “baking scene” workshop designed for my students. The highlight of the baking scene will include macarons Please look out for it.

There has been some changes to some of the more advanced workshops, where pre-requisite courses are required. This is because the courses are more complex and it would require the student to be comfortable working with basic woodwork and clay. This includes working with sharps such as cutters, and knowing how to cut out straight wood pieces.
More information about my new miniature clay food workshop will be posted when it is ready!
I made my first clay dessert macaron lollipop a couple of months ago. I had some clay macaron shells lying around and with some lollipop sticks, I thought it would be perfect to turn them into macaron pops!
I sold my first macaron pop clay dessert too, to a sweet customer in Australia, and here’s my 2nd piece. It is different in colour from the first one – this is a much more sweeter pink. But I’ve continued to use satin ribbon to decorate it. The cream filling is a vanilla cream filling – you can see the vanilla beans in it.
For this particular one, I’m letting it go at a lower price — Just because there is a little nipon the back of the macaron shell, at the bottom. It is almost not noticeable.
Perfect to be used as birthday parties prop, wedding props, anything you can think of. :)
If you need more than 1 piece, please feel free to contact me here.

I’ve just completed creating these new Purim earrings featuring hamantaschen! Initially I’ve released the fridge magnets in fig, apricot and raspberry, and now I’ve made them available into dangling earrings too.
