I am still in the pie mood, so today I wanted to share a spring pie. Since lime is a citrus fruit, I decided to make a key lime pie. It seems a little spring/summer. On the inside I made it a little different. I decided to try adding a few more “bubbles” to make it look like it was more moist. Then I added a little whip cream and limes to finish the look.
Today I have been cooking in the mini kitchen. Spring is here and it feels like pies are in the air everywhere. Well, really pies and ice cream are everywhere. So, I wanted to make a few pies. I love the lattice work on cherry and apple pies, so I decided to make one.
The picture above is a cherry pie with the lattice top. I made some cherries and added a little “cherry juice” on the inside. I then made the lattice top and used a little chalk to make the lattice and bottom of the pie look cooked. I decided not to slice the pie. I really did not want to mess up the lattice look. I am really happy with the final outcome. The top looks so pretty.
I have been busy in the mini kitchen making all kinds of desserts. Today I decided to make some brownies. But instead of just regular fudge brownies, I wanted to add a little extra sweetness.
So, today I made a few plates of fudge brownies. I topped the brownies with Vanilla Ice Cream. Then, I added a little fudge dripping on the vanilla ice cream. I finished off the dessert with a cherry on top. I placed them on a one inch dessert plate.
Today I wanted to share some more cupcakes. It has been raining and a little dreary outside, so I decided to make some yummy chocolate cupcakes. The base is chocolate with a little vanilla on top. I then added some chocolate drizzle on top with “nuts”. Lastly, I added a cherry for the topper. I wanted something a little different and chocolate.
Since Spring is here, I decided to make some light & fresh cupcakes. I love watermelon, so I wanted to make watermelon flavored cupcakes. I made the base of the cupcakes with a pinkish look and added “seeds”. I then made the top part of the cupcake with a light green clay mixed with a little white swirl to make it a little lighter. It also makes the top look like the rim part of the watermelon, since it has shades of green and the white rim. I love the final look.
Spring is here and it is so warm outside. I have been making everything with fresh lemons. The smell of the lemons is so light and fresh. So, I decided I needed to make something for the dollhouse. My minis need a lemon dessert too!
I decided to make a 3 layer Lemon Poppy Seed Cake. I love how the “poppy seeds” show once the cake is cut. I made a light lemon icing. I also added fresh lemon canes to the top. They were really fun to make.
