Made Some Cherries...

With the memory of Monsieur de la Rue's extraodinarily delicious homegrown cherries still lingering, here are a few of my recent miniature pieces featuring one of my favourite fruits!

Miniature Cherry CharlotteOf course there's our classic cherry charlotte, made from lady finger biscuits and decorated with a really fine silk bow. Having a small bow is really important - there's no point putting in lots of effort to make a realistic minature and then spoiling it with a bow that wouldn't look out of place on a full-sized kimono!
