Spring Bake Sale in 1/12 scale

Wow! I've been AWOL for a while and recently came back here to find 22 followers - what a wonderful surprise! I'm so delighted!  And thankful you decided to follow my mini-escapades. So many of you have such wonderful work on your blogs.... I find it totally inspiring and exciting to keep up with all your new creations as well. You are all so talented.

I've been trying to get this new display finished for more than a month now, but rheumatoid arthritis flares kicked my butt in a major way. My stiff, uncooperative fingers were simply unable to manipulate the clay. Period. And the "oh-my-gosh-I've-never-been-so-tired" exhaustion kept all my creativity swirling around in my head, only. I'm just happy to finally summon enough energy today to complete most of the major components for my new spring bake shop. Those inexpensive unfinished cabinets I've been purchasing (and hoarding) from Michael's came in handy. I totally redid them to fit our doll houses, and the new staging area on my craft table.

This week I received a darling pink mini-mixer (I really dig those mini-mixers). I just had to add it to my new white work table. A teeny tiny flour sifter and measuring cup should arrive next week, so I can update the work tables with those too...still planning....and imagining....

Word to the wise, this is going to be one heck of a long, long blog - I hope you enjoy. 

A bird's eye view of the entire setup. 

Grab 'n run treats in the far left cabinet (Who doesn't have at least one free hand to grab a cookie on the way to the soccer field, or music lesson, or whatever and wherever you fancy.)
Here we have some cookies, lemon bars, and confetti-colored macaroons...yum!

Delightful donuts - a personal weakness of my ravenous sweet tooth. 

Cake cupboard - sweet!

Cupcake cuties. Pick your flavor.

My kitchen NEVER looks this neat when I'm baking. That's what's so nice about minis - small enough to keep everything in its place. 

Ta-da! The pink mixer in action!
Lemon and chocolate sheet cakes..mmmmm...

Red Velvet, Double Fudge, and Strawberry - swell summer flavors!

More chocolate - cream sandwich pies and rolls....

I "heart" pink!
