Last night I was very lucky indeed, I was chauffeured to dinner at the Wolseley Hotel just next door to The Ritz, Piccadilly, London and then onto the Royal Albert Hall to see Totem, the new Cirque De Soleil show. I had a fabulous evening. Suffice to say I didn't get to bed until 12.30am which is well past my normal bedtime, so sad bunny that I am I was forced to have a little nap this afternoon.
After all the excitement of last night I was able to settle down and get on with some of my commissions. Here is a sample of some of my newly completed works

So far this month I have had two colds which I have had to fight with steaming hot mugs of lemon, garlic, ginger and honey. Oh yes and of course aspirin and paracetamol. I hope you are all well and if not I recommend the above although the garlic will leave you a little unpopular with friends and family.
On the up side of being confined to the house I have been able to make lots of minis without the distraction of the gym (namely the guilt for not being there).

What with 2010 truly over its time to get ready for a miniature Valentine's Day. I have been busy making Chocolates and Valentine Chocolate Boxes.
I have also been experimenting with a new techique which I call filigree icing as in the two tier celebration cake above.
At the end of December I had a special promotion on my website www.dollhousekitchen.com where each customer received a free pot of strawberry jam with every purchase. This proved so successful I shall be including a free pot of plum jam with every purchase for two weeks during February so keep checking the site.
