CHOCOLAT - Lakeland Miniature Guild - Fun Day 2012

When I saw the prototype photo of this project, I knew I had to be involved. I love chocolate and rarely let a day go by without a little chocolate in it. I do give it up for Lent - exercise in willpower. I like miniature scenes full of goodies. I want something new to look at from any angle. Same way I decorate my home.


One of the reasons I love shops like this is because you can pack tons of stuff into them.  


This is inside the shop, looking out thru the window.
Looking out another window.   
Horseshoe cabinet to display the goodies.  
Another view.   Hard to get a good picture thru plexiglass.
Cakes, Cookies, Fudge, etc.   
Of course you will have a sample.
My chandelier needs a bit of work, didn't know it was not hanging straight, but easy to solve.   Don't you love chocolate fountains.   
The view of the whole shop.  


Outside the shop.   A place to sit and eat some chocolate and a trash can so you don't litter the wrappers.  

The exterior view.  

Just a little sign in the window in an empty cake stand - of course we have cake!

Some scenes take a long time to work out, this was just the home for all the things I've been collecting over many years.   It was really great fun.

I had a hard time remembering the bakery items weren't real. I aspire to be a chocolatier as creative as you.

this is an adorable little bakery, and so tasty! The nice thing about miniature sweets is that they don't have any calories.
