Are these cakes/baked goods real?
Well…not exactly. Lol. They may have been at some point, hence “Where Art Imitates Life” but what you see on this site is the artist’s creation of either something inspired by or entirely imagined and created as a miniature in 1:6 scale (aka “play scale”).
CAN I PURCHASE THESE MINIATURES?
Yes! Commissions are totally welcome and appreciated. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request and I will get back to you asap!
WHAT MATERIAL DO YOU USE TO CREATE THE MINIATURES?
Various materials may be used to make each individual piece but the short answer is - polymer clay.
WhERE CAN I SEE MORE?
So, glad you asked! You can find my creations on Instagram @minaslittlebakeshop, as well as, how-to baking and stop-motion animation videos on my YouTube channel, Mina’s Little Bake Shop.
DO YOU EVER BAKE REAL GOODIES?
Yes, yes and yes! In fact, I am a former cake decorator and sugar artist, previously having owned my own business. My love for creating miniatures and my passion for content creation has taken over, however, I still love to bake with and for my family & friends…with the occasional commissioned custom order.
HOW CAN I LEARN TO DO WHAT YOU DO?
Great question! There are so many resources online these days - YouTube is a great place to start for miniature creations. My professional background is actually in television and it’s taken years of honing my production skills but a great place to start is Lynda.com for all things video production. Food Photography has become my new passion and I highly recommend Brooke Lark and her classes. You can find her online as well.
