Anyone know what this cake is? And it's recipe?

Hello everyone!
We've finally had a few days of lovely weather, not good enough to warrant getting the shorts out yet though! I took a trip to Horncastle the other day and dropped by my Mom and I's favourite tea room, Henny's. It's gorgeous in there and they sell a delicious cake! The cake is cut into squares and is called "Ma's Cake." I've searched and searched everywhere for the recipe but I can't find it. :( I'm beginning to wonder if it's called something different. I'd love to try and make some myself, as the need to travel to Henny's every day for my lunch will become quite an expensive habit!!

I've included below some pictures of the last slice, obviously eaten straight after the photos!
The top is covered with a thin layer of chocolate. The base is crunchy, sort of rice krispie cake crunchy, or biscuity, but very chewy at the same time.

If any one knows the name of this cake (other than Ma's Cake) or the recipie for it, could you please let me know? I'd love to make this for my mom's birthday!

10 Things You Don't Know About Me :)

Since I haven't posted in a few days, I thought I'd do something a little different to miniatures, and baby bunnies. When I check out a new blog, I like to read the bloggers profile, information about them and read more into their blog posts (not just the most recent ones) to get a feel of the blogger and who they are. You can tell alot about people through their blogs. Good sense of humour, busy lifestyle, lives in the country/city, their favourite colour etc.
I don't know what you're thinking, but my blog doesn't really say that much about me. So I thought I'd let you in on a few things about me. Ten random facts :)

1) You may, or may not know, that I am 18 years young :)

2) I love my car! And it goes by the name of Gumpy!

3) My favourite colour is blue. I love pale pastels, but I also really like brights!

4) I'm very much a people-person, can talk and talk all day long - but I love my "me time."

5) I love my mom's lasagne!!

6) I used to horse ride, and had my own pony when I was younger. His name was Mr. Pickles

7) The house I'm currently living in is my dream home. I want to create it in miniature.

8) I spend too much time on the computer, and way too much time on Etsy and The Dolls House Emporium Forum!

9) I have a spider plant, called Spike. I have had this plant since I was about 8 years old. I love Spike.

10) Love the sun. Hate the heat. Love the snow. Hate the cold. Love the rain. Hate wet hair!

So there you have it :)

It will be really interesting to see you guys do this too, just 10 random things about you, lets see what you come up with :)

See you soon!

Literally - Anything Miniature :)

Hello everyone!

I realised today, that I suck at blogging. Or maybe not blogging itself, more like finding the time to make progress on my dolls houses, so that I have something interesting to blog about!! Well that stops here. I've decided to make it my aim to blog about something. Anything, as random as it may be, but hopefully miniature related. As the title says "Anything Miniature!" :p

So I thought I'd start with something I photographed today. Something adorable. Something furry. Something that hops. Something baby like. And certainly miniature :) Check him out::

Isn't he just adorable?! I took this photo from a window at work. There was two of these beautiful babies, but the other hopped away before I could get my phone out for a photo.

Well there we have it, I've posted. :)

See you soon

One Inch Scale Dolls House Miniature 31 Piece Bread Selection!! Yummy!!

What do you think to these?
I had so much fun making this bread selection. Each bread is unique, and therefore OOAK, as none of them are made from a mould and each one differs in details, size and colour.
I made these breads for hours straight, finding myself completely taken by each piece, adding colours and texture until they looked good enough to each there and then! I made myself a similar selection for my own bakery, but this 31 piece set is now listed on my Etsy shop, Diddies.

If you'd like more details on the bread selection visit the official Diddies blog here: or my Etsy shop here:


Tomorrow is my day off work and I have so many plans :) Hopefully I'll get something interesting done on either the bakery, Bruion, or my new top secret project... dum dum dummm!!

Watch this space ;)

Bye for now :D

Friday Feeling...?

Got it? Nope.. neither have I.

Instead, I'm overcome by irritation - or that could just be the fly buzzing around here!
I have no real miniature progress to post at this time, and this frustrates me. I seem to be doing a fair bit of mini-ing just lately, but nothing that I can show you.

I can show you this though:

I do apologise for the awful quality of this photo. It doesn't help that it was a bright morning and the bakery is sat right in front of a window. I dug out the date plaque (reads 1830) and the bakery sign (reads Bakers Dozen) and attached these the other day. I was hoping to get something else more exciting done so I could do a proper post, but nothing exciting has been done yet. Hopefully I can get something done today.

It's about time I did something on Bruion...

See you soon
