Qing Ming (清明)

The Qing Ming Festival is also know as the March Festival Originating from The Zhou Dynasty. It is set in the 15th day after the spring equinox of 24 solar. It has a history of more than 2500 years. But the most popular is know as Grave-sweeping  or Spring Remembrance. It is a time the Chinese families show their respect to their ancestors by visiting the graves.

There are many Qing Ming  rituals practice  by the Chinese, one of them is food offerings to their ancestors. 

Here are some of my handmade miniature clay food for those who want to pay their respect and place them at the columbariums. 

                        My handmade clay food:  /size: 20cent coin. miniature local delights and pastries.

Can you name all the food? 

I love the miniature kuehs!

There are some many machine-made miniature pastries in the market so I seldom make them.

The miniature  roti parata  looks delicious! Learn how to make this at Advance level. 

        Keep all your favorite miniature food together, it really fun and joy when looking at them, especially 
       your own handmade miniature food, no matter what is the purpose of making it.  I love it!
