Tea Shop 'Cake' and 'Bake'

I wanted the word CAKE for the Tea Shop and so I made the letters from polymer clay and glued them to a piece of wood, then painted them a couple of times.
 Then I made BAKE for the bakery and it sits above the preparation board Kaisa made for me.
I had trouble with JILLY as the 'I' and the 'Y' have such small bases they kept falling off when I tried to paint them, plus the paint was a bit thick which didn't help.
I hope you're all having a lovely weekend!

  1. Wonderful job on the letters, I know how hard that must have been! Couly you make the 'I' and the 'Y' a little longer and poke them into a hole in the base for greater stability?

  2. Hi Gill! That looks gooooood :O) I just wonder: did you really cut each letter from clay by hand??? (Wow!) Lucky me, here in Germany we have a kind of noodles that come as letters in dollhouse size :-))))
    Happy Sunday! Sandra

    1. Hi Sandra! I can get that pasta but I've only seen it in a very small size. I made a mould from some plastic letters I bought in a Chinese store here. Happy Sunday to you too!
