This cake was specially made for our little princess’s birthday. Since she is a little chess master, we felt this cake was very appropriate for her. The chess pieces and board were made out to white and dark chocolate. The square cake layers are chocolate and white cakes filled with mascarpone and chocolate ganache.
We started this dress for our life-size little darling several years. This life size dress was inspired by the silk dress we designed for our Little Darling Effner dolls.
Other things always seem to come so the dress got pushed away year after year and was left unfinished. Finally, this year we decided to finish it so our little darling can finally wear before she became too big for smocked dresses. The dress is made out of beautiful red tissue taffeta fabric. The bodice is smocked with red silk thread and embellished with tiny 14k gold filled beads.
The lower edge of the dress is embellished with metallic gold mesh lace.
We have been working on fair isle and cable sweaters and knit wear for our Little Darlings and other dolls.
We decided that our dolls needed their own holiday picture card this year. We ended up with some fun holiday pictures of our girls in their holiday outfits.
Our Little Darlings are preparing for Christmas by making snowflakes and gingerbread chains.
They also prepared a plate of cookies for Santa…
And Neil decorated the Christmas tree…
Rosy is currently working on the back plate design for our first Blythe doll. She is painting an Adonis Blue butterfly on it. Here is the progress so far. I have already carved and painted the Blythe head and Niki has already assembled the eye mechanism with new custom made eye chips. I will share pictures progress once Rosy finishes painting the eyelids
