Hi Mini Friends,
I am so excited today! I have been baking in the Mini Kitchen. When I first started making miniatures, I only made food for the fashion size dolls, 1:6 playscale. Then I gradually started making a few 1:12 scale items. I made things like cards, magazines & newspapers. Finally, I purchased a 1:12 scale doll. Then I started making candy and small dessert items in 1:12 scale. Now I have ventured into making cakes and cupcakes in 1:12 scale. They are so cute and tiny compared to the 1:6 playscale items.
I have been creating new items for Easter and I had to show the comparison for the different scales. I made 2 cakes in the same pattern. The one on the left is in 1:6 playscale and the one on the right is 1:12 scale.
I think one of the major differences is the amount of clay it takes to create each cake. Of course, the 12th scale takes a lot less clay. The 1:6 playscale cake measures approx. 1 11/16 inches. The 12th scale cake measures approx. 3/4 inches. Big difference! They are both fun to make and I love comparing the two different sizes. I wanted to share the difference in the scales. It truly is amazing.
Hope you enjoy!
