When I was a little girl, both sets of grandparents had strawberries in their gardens. So to me, a big bowl of fresh strawberries with a tiny bit of sugar sprinkled on top (can you tell I'm hungry right now?) is a staple of summertime. And I figured that maybe I could give you all a taste of the upcoming summer months by letting you peak at some of my newest creations. Both of these have already been listed in my etsy shop.
This one is a hand sculpted strawberry pendant. It has everything a real strawberry should have, including seeds, leaves, and even a little vine on top.
I've also listed something a little different from anything I've sold in my shop before. It's an entire strawberry cake, handmade out of polymer clay. The cake is sliced into 4 pieces, and each is a separate magnet. I used super-strong rare earth magnets, so these will definitely be effective at keeping your papers securely stuck to the fridge (or any other magnetic surface). Each piece features a strawberry slice, a tiny leaf, and a dollop of whipped cream! The cake has a brown crust on bottom and a layer of icing in the middle. I really went all out on this one, now if only I could make a REAL cake that looked this edible!
Let me hear from my fellow strawberry lovers!! I actually have been looking for some fun recipes involving fresh fruit, does anyone have any suggestions?
