I recently discovered my love for polymer clay. My daughter and I play with Play-doh & homemade salt dough often & we love it, but I just love the feel & look of the polymer. My daughter has been loving playing with it too.
One of her favorite things to make which her doughs & clays is pretend cakes & cookies. She loves to play bakeshop.
We had some mini cupcake liners. We used them to form our clay cupcakes.
We both pressed a clump of clay into our liners. We pressed it in tight, so that the liner would make an imprint on the clay. I kept the liner in a stack so that the liner would keep its shape & not spread out while we worked with it.
We used another color & formed a flat circle to lay over the top of the first layer.
I rolled out a clump of clay so that it formed a long strand & then I circled the strand in a spiral around the top to form the frosting.
The fun part is decorating your little cakes. Add little clay specks for sprinkles or a circle for a cherry, form flowers or anything else that you & your little baker can come up with.
My little baker threw her original design out the window & opted for a fancier cake, complete with lady & handbag on top. She put it in a larger liner & then told me that her cupcake could eat my cupcakes. That gave me a chuckle.
Next, we baked our tasty treats per package directions. These will all make a great additional to my daughter’s little bakeshop.
