Half cut mini tutu kueh

Do you like kueh Tutu? I love it so much since I was a small girl , nowadays  it is difficult to find nice and delicious kueh tutu in Singapore . These are my handmade clay kueh tutu and due to request, I cut the mini clay tutu into half , so you can see the filling inside, peanut or coconut? I love both!

My newly handmade kueh clay tutu with peanut and coconut filling inside

I made different sizes of clay tutu and cut them into half. 

This half cut kueh tutu is filled with full of fake peanut. 

Lying peacefully really for sale... thank you ! I do not use any mold to make them , that's way I can make different sizes for you. 

Displaying is very important as a good presentation of your art piece bring more attraction of people

As miniature art pieces are so small and mini it seldom attract a lot of attention unless you make more , I mean a lot and put them together in order to catch attention!

Miniature Hawker Stall 111 美食小吃 (part 2)

Making a miniature doll house is actually not an easy job as you need to prepare many mini and detailed items in order to build /fill your mini house. It really use a lot of energy and hard work. But you will enjoy the whole process of making it. Really!

I made a base for my handmade miniature hawker stall is about 20 cm x 15 cm base.

The miniature hawker stall height is about 16 cm , this included the signal board. 

Below showed how I prepared  my handmade miniature food and things that needed for the miniature wooden hawker stall.

Miniature chicken, duck and pork to hang on the stall

Miniature food on a mini metal plate to place at the stall

a super mini basket to put my super mini clay eggs

you need to make the show case with glass on it for your stall, without a show case, the mini hawker stall does not look so real, and make super mini food to put inside

this is the back of the show case, I made a glass  for my show case too.

You can buy this but I like to make my own chopping board and knife to match my miniature stall

make your own signal board and write the name in Chinese, looks more realistic  

I purposely make a base with sand for my handmade mini hawker stall

another super mini gyoza (jiaozi) made for my stall

prepare some mini chilli, garlic and spring onion for my stall too.....

This is the actual size of my handmade hawker stall 111. 

Look from the size of the stall looks cute as those miniature clay chicken, duck etc are hanging there.
