I've been working on felt food all month! My Mom bought me a set of patterns and kits from FeltCuisine.com. The patterns are great, and it's fun handwork. I've always tried to make felt food using my machine, but I think in the case of felt it's actually faster to just do it by hand! And it's relaxing =) The best part of the cupcakes, tarts, and cakes was using foam for the base. I made Serenity a set of cupcakes for Christmas, but getting a real cupcake shape was impossible because I was using stuffing. With the foam they stand up nicely and hold their shape much better. So, I learned not to fake it with the wrong materials and not to be lazy and try to use the machine =) Do it right the first time! And aren't they cute?
