Make Mine Chocolate - Quarter Scale Cocoa Container Shop

Who doesn't like Chocolate. It is clearly my favorite above all things. I am way behind others on a couple of Internet Miniature Swap Groups that I belong to in making a scene from a Cocoa container, but better late than never. Finding one in Key West was IMPOSSIBLE. Finally I had to look on eBay and found them. Bought 2, although I've only used one to date. They are the cutest little containers and certainly lend themselves to bakeries, ice cream shop, etc. Above is the front of the shop. You can see the name of the shop above the door "Make Mine Chocolate". Little bench outside although with the snow on the ground, no one wants to sit there.




You can see it's cold outside, through the frosted glass. Anticipation!!!


Small shop, 2 tables, but lots of cakes, brownies, cookies etc. What to choose?


Pretty simple interior.




Cases were made from task board (I made them) and they work great.





















Another view of the interior.







Still another view.



This was certainly a fun project. Now what to do with the other cocoa container??

Your snow and frosted windows impressed me, especially since you are a Floridian. Such attention to detail shows. I love that you made the bakery cases, now if I could just figure out what task board is.

This is such a delightful little shop! What is task board? And how did you cut it? Your attention to detail is excellent, and it shows in the quality of the finished project - the cakes etc are very realistic, and the whole interior is very inviting. Like you, I live where it doesn't snow, but enjoy snowy scenes. Well done indeed.
