Last week, I asked my Facebook fans which foods I should include in my dollhouse miniature summer party, and today, I want to give you a little behind-the-scenes peek at the making of these tiny foods. Shall we?

You can’t have a summer party without ice cream, so I made tiny ice cream sandwiches, creating the cookie pattern by pricking the tops with a needle.




For the hot dog tray, I made tiny buns tinted with artist chalk pastel and little bowls of mustard and relish. The corn dogs were made from clay skewered onto short lengths of toothpick.




The cake was made from four layers of brightly colored clay, each mixed with a good amount of translucent to give the cake crumbs a more realistic appearance.

I made a “sauce,” spread it on the bottom of the casserole dish, and rolled up polymer clay tortillas, placing them in a little row in the dish. The tops were tinted with chalk pastel and topped with more “sauce” and “cheese.”

If you need a bucket of ice with chilled drinks for one of your summer food scenes, you can get that here.
