So the Christmas tree was made of cupcakes and the nutcrakers were perched on my mum's delicious fruitcake which I painted on to look like brick tunnels.
Little Elves waiting for Santa.... I used desicated coconut to create the snow.
These Nutcrackers took ages to make especially since every tiny detail was looked into, right down to the boot laces including silver their eyelets. Thank goodness I had many expert elves with excellent eyesight and steady hands to help me. The red one is my favourite :)
Each brick and rail track, was hand painted.... even the wheel and train was given an antique finish with paint.
Thanks for ALL that hard work Audrey and Anita (who just headed up to bed at 11am after an all nighter when this picture was taken)...after about 12 hours work non stop! mind you I had spent 10 hours in Singapore making the bulk on the figurines and cupcake toppings with Lilia a day ahead.
