Felt Food 1: The Tart Cake (Mini)

Look at what I SEWED! I think I am obsessed with felt food! Why have I not learn how to do this earlier?! I have so many ideas running across my mind after successfully finishing this mini tart!! Different color tarts, different toppings likeee blueberry? whipped cream? and different size tarts! Isn't it ironic that I have not baked a REAL edible tart to date? Haha

Anyways, I bought this mini tart cake kit (including cut-out felt paper, threads, magnet, papers and cotton) at Daiso in Vancouver, Canada. (I also bought many other cute little bakewares at this place! I shall get into that in another post.) I really should've bought all the kits they have, like their cakes, pudding and donuts! Ugh.. there's no Daiso in California. But mm, it's ok. I searched frantically online as soon as I finished the tart for more tutorials. So far, I have bookmarked quite a list that can take me a long while to go through each of them!
**The key word to google is "felt food tutorials."

Don't ever underestimate my patience with food crafts! This mini tart took me 5 hours to finish! I believe I repeated each step twice before successfully moving on to the next (there was a total 13 steps). Pretty good for a first time sewer, right? It was indeed some tedious work, but the end result is totally worth it.

Btw, I snapped about 60 photos from different angles hoping to get one photo that can sum up the awesomeness of this little tart. Hehe. Keep checking my blog for updates on my experiment with felt food!(:
