New range - Littlest Fast Food

Hello Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

It's an exciting day today at Littlest Sweet Shop as you can see we have a new range of fast food products. There were more miniatures added to the website this month but today we will only focus on the Littlest Fast Food range since it is a BIG one!

We started developing this new range since the end of last year and used so many techniques like vacuum forming and 3D printing. I even learnt how to use Adobe Illustrator to design the logo, packaging and boxes. All of these combined with traditional polymer clay modelling to create a highly detailed set of new products that you can mix and match to create the perfect fast food meal for your doll. The food is made to look super realistic and everything can be custom made to your liking. You can take each burger or nugget out of their boxes and have fries (or chips as we call it England) dipped in ketchup. Have a bite taken off the apple pie or have a soda cup filled only half full. The choice is yours and limited to your own imagination!
Full catalogue of Littlest Fast Food miniatures
Co-ordinate your perfect fast food meal by selecting some items from across the menu. Choose a main, side, drink, dessert, condiment, and additional accessories such as the serving tray. So many different meals you can tailor make to satisfy your doll's hunger. 
Hamburger, condiments, small cheeseburger, fries, cola drink, and strawberry sundae
Chicken burger, apple pie, curly fries and vanilla milkshake
2 Small cheeseburgers, fries, nuggets with packaged condiments, strawberry soda, and chocolate sundae 
Chicken nuggets, condiments, onion rings, and grape soda
Apple Pie, Chicken burger, curly fries and vanilla milkshake
Apple pies and drinks. Sometimes you just want something sweet!
For the mains we have burgers and nuggets. Hopefully in the upcoming months we will expand this menu with more burgers and other items like fried chicken. Smaller hamburgers like the cheeseburger will be wrapped in paper with no box. 
Littlest Hamburgers
Hamburger close up. Sesame bun with beef patty, lettuce, cheese with ketchup and mustard
Cheeseburgers. Smaller than a hamburger. Perfect size for kids!
Chicken burger. Crispy breaded chicken patty with lettuce, cheese and mayonaise
Chicken nuggets with a selection of condiments
We recommend that you purchase a pack of BBQ sauce condiment with gold foil seal for the nuggets. The seal can also be opened and resealed again!
We did not forget about sides and there are 3 different sides to choose from! These pieces are not glued down together so each individual pieces come loose for more play value!
Crunchy onion rings
Classic french fries. Have one or a few dipped in ketchup
All items come loose so you can play and arrange them any way you like
Curly fries comes with a spicy coating
All of that delicious food must be washed down with something sweet and refreshing. We offer every type of soda that you can think off and each of them look so real! Choose to have it with or without the straw and lid. The lid has been vacuum formed from an original mold so it is translucent, light and thin just like the real thing!
Littlest Fast Food soda with straw and lid
Sodas in all colours/flavours. Ice pieces are made from glass for extra realism!
Our dessert menu is small but it is the best way to finish a meal at a Littlest Fast Food restaurant. Choose from milkshakes, apple pies and ice cream sundaes. The ice cream is actually listed in the Ice Cream menu.
Littlest Desserts
The milkshakes look so fluffy and light and even available in chocolate flavour. Choose to have it with or without a straw.
Vanilla and Strawberry milkshake
Our apple pies look so light and crispy and you can even order them broken into 2 parts to expose the filling inside. You can also have a bite taken off from it as well. 
Littlest Apple Pies
Long deep-fried pastry
Delicious apple filling
Fries and chicken nuggets taste better dipped in condiments. You have the option to have the condiment container sealed (you can still open it up) or without the gold seal. There is BBQ sauce, mustard sauce and ketchup in tiny little condiment containers. The containers were also vacuum formed so you can see that it is very translucent and light like real condiment pots. 
BBQ sauce, ketchup, mustard sauce
Want to complete your collection? Purchase one of our serving trays that come with the exclusive paper liner. Choose from yellow or white 3D printed trays. Order 2 or more since they are stackable! This is the best way to display your Littlest Fast Food miniatures.

So if you want to open your very own Littlest Fast Food restaurant, we even sell empty boxes and cups to stock up on. Some packaging will have Japanese words on them to reflect Littlest Sweet Shop's original style. 
Littlest Fast Food packaging also sold separately without miniature food
If you want to learn how to make some of these miniatures, you can view the full video tutorial on how to make the hamburger and apple pie on our YouTube channel. You can even see how I made the fries, sodas, and chicken nuggets exclusively via our Instagram channel. Keep following us so that you don't miss out on all of these free lessons.

That's all for now. I hope you like this new range and we will be adding more exciting new items like a Happy Meal for kids in the near future. I will also incorporate more packaging designs and 3D printed items because I think that they add more value to the miniatures itself. 

Currently I am busy with a big commission and the next batch of new items for February will be posted next week. 

Bye!

New arrivals for January - Unicorn cake, Final Fantasy bread, Brioche à tête and Breadsticks

Greetings Littlest Sweet Shoppers

It's been a while but I'm back! I had a busy holiday period where I sold a lot of miniatures via our Etsy shop and in January I went on a skiing holiday in Norway. The weather in England has been grey and wet as usual but I managed to take photos for these new miniatures. 

This unicorn cake is a small cake (suited for 1:12 scale) and features ombre colours in it's icing 'mane'. We love using blue and pink ombre for our unicorn colours and this cake pairs well with ombre macarons and Unicorn fudge.

I have been playing Final Fantasy RPGs all my life and here is a sharing bread made from some of the famous characters from the game. You can buy 6 or 9 pieces to create your own pull-apart bread from 3 different characters. You can also order individual Cactuar, Moogle or Chocobo bread.

Now here is something that is great for a dinner table setting. We have 2 types of breadsticks - plain or cheese twists. Arrange them in a container and serve it with a cheese platter or as a starter. They are long, thin and crispy, perfect for lunch or dinner.

Last but not least is a new French bread called Brioche à tête. Brioche à tête is the most classic form of this sweet and rich bread and the portion is enough for 1 doll. Just serve with butter and jam for a rich and delicious experience.

That's all for now. Our Etsy store will only open until end of February so make sure you visit soon to grab a few ready-made miniatures and accessories for yourself. I am also currently doing an exciting new project called "Littlest Fast Food". It is quite a daunting job creating all the new packaging for the food especially when I am still learning my way around Adobe Illustrator. The process may be taking some time but I hope to launch this new series next month. Make sure you follow us on social media so you can see my progress on the project. Visit us again next month for more new miniatures!

Bye!
