More Deli Photos

The fruit and vegetable stand. All fruit and veges were purchased from the UK.

The fire brigade helmet (the real thing) is actually a donation container for the local fire brigade.

The main shop counter. Behind it is the pie warmer and in the corner the Bain Marie for the hot chips. The little Chrismas Cakes, plum puddings and Bryants Cookies are made by me.

It's Finished. More Interior Photos.

3-4 12 plus hour days and it's completed. Just in time for Christmas. There are many more things that I would like to include. I could see another years work in it easily. But time is up and Mum received it on Christmas eve. Here are just a few pictures of some of the interior fixtures. Lots of cutting and pasting of printies. But I feel it was well worth it.

It's almost Christmas and I'm not finished!

My first attempt at miniature pies and sausage rolls. Ok so they are a little bit wobbly! I'm happier with the lolly counter. These are printies I found on the internet. Most of these are actually sold in Australia. I have to admit thought my favourite one is missing. I love Boost Bars at the moment and I have to stop buying them at the Petrol Station.

The original shop that I am basing my project on had a streets freezer as well. The logo may be familiar to you around the world but with a different name. What do they call Street's in your country?My favourite ice cream is not an icecream at all but an "icy-pole" which is frozen lemonade. Whats your favourite?

It is very close to Christmas. My project is far from finished. In my Mum's shop she had a metal bread stand for the bread but all the ones I found on the internet were not what I was after. This little wooden one will do for the moment, I might be able to add one latter.

Deli Counter and Bread Stand

I spent a few hours yesterday on my first attempt of miniature cheese making.

It was a little harder to make some compared to others. I experimented with adding ingredients to the mix and also adding some real kitchen ingredients after.

I followed a few hints from other blogs and the best tip I found that worked is to refrigerate your cheese before cutting it into wedges.

I particularly like the one that I added poppy seeds to.

The bacon rashes and ham were purchased from the Uk. I love the little ham bone hanging out of it.

The bread stand is almost finished. I just need to add the name of the bakery that the bread came from.

My next project with fimo will be some miniature fruit cakes to be placed on the shop counter.
