                                      This mini metal steamboat has a cover too.

                                     Look,    how small these miniature clay food are!

             The colour of this miniature clay pork is so nice , we rolled it and put them onto the mini plate.

                The colour of the miniature clay beef must be darker.

All my Photos are GONE!!

Dear Friends,

I am so sorry that You are now unable to see all my valued photos of my blog. This is because I have accidently  deleted my photos when I tried out Android on my new Samsung Note yesterday.

I saw all the photos in Gallery and I thought it was just the images from my photos albums, so without a thought I deleted the images from the phone, with no warning on the phone advising that by deleting the images from the hone it would sync back to web albums and delete all imges from Picasa.(my blog)

Many years and time uploading and blogging and organizing  just a second,  GONE!!!

Can anyone HELP??? or how can I replace the photos again??

  I am very very UPSET that lost all these valued photos. My silly sadly deletion!! But I will try my best to replace all the photos back.


PS: I will put back the photos as many as I can, one by one ( I got back up some) . I know it will take quite a long time but what to do......

Miniature Hotpot/ mini steamboat (1)

Last week, my student Connie and I have together made this miniature hot pot/ mini steamboat. She is my advance level student. She suggested to make a table of miniature steamboat during her lesson. As I do not have a sample to show her , so during the lesson while teaching her how to make the food , I have made a table of mini food for my miniature hot pot meal  too.
We used 2 lessons to complete all these miniature steamboat meal.

          This is my handmade miniature hot pot meal and a mini clay pot with pork and abalone tonic soup

The mini metal steamboat was bought from Thailand. It is really small and cute, all the food must
 made super mini in order to fill in.  You can make as many clay food as you like.

                  Make a mini table for the hot pot meal too .  The fake egg yolk  looks delicious too!

               The bigger wooden table was done by Connie, she needs to add some more plates of mini  
               food as her mini table is bigger than mine.

                          She did very well all the mini clay food looks real and nice.

            From this view, you can see the miniature table with legs. (I didn't make the legs for my table)
            You can see I didn't fill up my mini plates with food as I do not have much time to do all.

Miniature food stall

I like to make my own miniature stall using wood. This is because I can decide the size i want. Well, this take up a lot of time so if you are not good at cutting wood, just buy the ready made miniature stalls and fixed them together.

                                This is the smallest miniature food stall I ever made. This is the Front.

                                                    This is the back view.

A very good gift for someone who love these food.

Lu dan 鲁蛋 is always my favourite but not the 烧肉

Hand made croissant ring

I did this mini clay croissant bread yesterday. I find the croissant bread very cute so I made it into a ring. Hope you like it. You can replace the bread by any other things you like. Do it yourself or let me help you.

                 Actually there are many fine lines on the surface of the mini clay croissant but from the
                 photo cannot see so clearly.


As this is the only item on the ring, so you need to add more details on the clay food .

Clay Food Replicate : Siew Mai 烧卖 vs 小笼包 (Dumplings)

The pictures below showed recently my handmade clay food model/ replicates in real size,  小笼包 (Dumplings) and Siew Mai 烧卖

My handmade clay food model:   烧卖  and 小笼包 

Instead of making dumpling or siew mai, you can also try to make some simple bun to fill up the steamer.

This is my handmade live size clay food:  Siew Mai 烧卖 and 小笼包

Clay Food Replicate : Siew Mai 烧卖

This is also a real size clay food model :  Siew Mai 烧卖, It is one of the most popular dim sum item but  I do not really like it as it is too oily and due to allergy  ,I do not eat prawns.

I think I can make the siew mai more lively next time because after making these fake  Siew Mai, all types of 烧卖 keep coming up in  my mind.

                   My handmade clay food model :  Siew Mai 烧卖 in real size steamer/container

                                 Clay prawn and fake Tobiko  is added on top of each siew mai

                 Two big size of steamer and my handmade clay food:      Siew Mai 烧卖 and 小笼包

Clay Food Replicate : 小笼包 (Dumplings)

I have made these real size clay food models:  dumplings (小笼包 ) last week for a custom order. As the pictures she showed it to me is quite different from the type I used to eat. The finishing part is a bit difficult as I need to fold the the bun carefully and neatly or not I need to redo the bun all over again.

I am very satisfied with these小笼包 . I love it!

        My handmade clay 小笼包 (dumpling) in real/live size.  I do not know how to make a real bun but I
        think I can help them to fold the bun/bao.  :D  Inside the small hole is the fake soup .

The streamer is really big, but I only requested to make 3 fake dumplings models.  It will look very
nice with many baos or dumplings inside of the container.
