Old Fashioned Coffee Sponge Cake - The Miniature Version

I got nostalgic for those quiet summer afternoons at my grandma's, with the great desserts and the long talks, and the feeling of sheer joy it all gave me. And I suddenly felt the urge for some old fashioned sponge cake…

But you know me, miniatures are my specialty, so what else could I be making, if not a tiny sponge cake? And in keeping with my grandmother's tradition I have given it the works: coffee frosting and cherry confiture on the side - or should I say on top?

Ok, so maybe it doesn't smell like the real thing, maybe it is not edible, you've got me there. But it's a miniature that captures the moment, and that will definitely last in time - not like the real cake that would disappear the moment she'd take it out of the oven :) 

I guess with polymer clay things really can last forever, and I made a cake that will remind me that memories do last forever - at least good ones that is…

  1. Hi Maria! I can smell the coffee cake from here! I love the aroma and your interpretation is wonderful! Very realistic. I love the density of your cake and richness of your icing with the cherry topping! Yummy! Now for the mug of hot coffee to wash it down with?
