Coronation Cake

Hello, nice to see you again.

It's crazy to think that as I am writing this post (8/3/2023) it's snowing outside! Hopefully when this blog post goes live, it will be met by warmer weather (Future me: we are!)

I hope you've been well since my last post in March, have you tried making the "Pot of Gold" cake to celebrate St. Patrick's day? I'd love to see it if you did <3

As you may know, this month is an important month in England as Prince Charles is going to be crowned King. So "The Dolls House & Miniature Scene" magazine have asked me to make a tutorial for a tiny version of a cake to mark the King's coronation.

So for the May issue, I chose to make an Imperial Crown cake sitting on the red pillow.

The tutorial has around 20 steps, all in full colour photography with written instructions; and even though it's a long one, the cake is not as difficult or time consuming as it seems.

For the inside of the cake, I chose the Victoria Sponge cake, which to me is the queen of cakes, so it seemed rather fitting. But of course you can make your cake in any flavour you want.

To go with the cake, I made some traditional British afternoon tea treats such as Bakewell tarts and scones with clotted cream and jam. (Please note that the tutorial is for the cake only).

If you'd like to display a slice of cake on a plate, you will need a miniature ceramic plate (and a fork if you'd like) or to make one out of polymer clay. Alternatively, what I would do if I lacked both, I would serve the slice of cake on a pretty paper napkin, as it happens that one might run out of plates at a party! :D

What else is in this issue?

Inside this issue we show you how to turn your mini homes into a party, celebrating the coronation of King Charles III, with our cover star Maive Ferrando’s miniature crown cake and Sadie Brown’s coronation chicken sandwich which will look perfect on a dining table, plus Ruth Flewelling Lesbirel shows how to make bunting containing the official royal emblem.

These aren’t the only projects this issue, there’s an abundance of makes including Moi Ali getting creative (or should we say ‘crafty’) with stamps plus check out part four of her mini-series Retro Fit Realism, where she looks at interior detailing such as the walls, floors and ceilings.

All this plus money saving tips, the best advice from industry expert Bea Broadwood from Petite Properties and Ruth Flewelling Lesbirel’s ‘mini tips’, plus so much more!

On Sale: 27/04/2023

If you'd like to make the strawberry cupcakes you see in this scene, the tutorial is in the February 2021 issue of Dolls House & Miniature Scene magazine.

I hope my cake will inspire you to make your own - and maybe a whole English afternoon tea party! - and that the techniques used will come in useful in other projects.

Have a lovely, peaceful Sunday ❤️

Love, Mai
