Sweet Treats Good Enough to Eat

Strawberry Cupcake Pendant by beadpassion on Etsy

As a child I was into my crafts and I had a Fimo set that I used to make cute flower and ladybug jewellery with. As an adult I'm back into my cute jewellery especially the 1950s style flowers or cherry jewellery. However being on a budget a lot of the pieces that I see today on Etsy or other similar sites leave me thinking I could make that and save myself they money! So i finally bought myself a Fimo set.

Whilst searching on Etsy for cheap Fimo sets I noticed the recent trend of cute dessert and sweet inspired jewellery. I didn't realise just how big it was until I saw the post on Super Kawaii Mamas blog - Diet Without Giving Up Cake. I just adore these and for me i can really have my cake and eat it as due to my diet restrictions I can only have sweet treats on rare occasions and when I do most cakes and the like look a lot better than they taste. I am going to experiment with making a few of my own and I'll bring you the results in future posts!
Have a sweet treat today dear readers ... x
