Friday Food

Well, at least it's food related! Remember these pot holders? Well, I finished them a while ago and decided that they weren't quite the colors I wanted, so I listed them on Etsy. Simply click here if you want to take a peek.
This is the pair I made for our kitchen. The dark blue just works better with some of my kitchen towels.
And look at those delicious colors I am using for yet another pair that'll go in my Etsy shop. Fun!!
Now, I promise to make you hungry. Just look at this yummy decadence.
Doesn't it look ambrosial? That's what I thought until I realized that it's all miniature food made from polymer clay by Stéphanie Kilgast. Isn't that amazing? She was a featured seller on Etsy the other day and I've been mesmerized by her creations ever since...

She even makes jewelry, like this delectable pendant
and these mouthwatering cookie earrings.
Or maybe you prefer sandwiches...

You can find her blog here and her Etsy shop here. It's worth taking a look!

Working in such a small format is just amazing to me. I admire it, but it's not something I'd have the patience for. Plus, if I'd make foodie items like this, I'd always be hungry...

Speaking of food, today, I am making a Chocolate Cherry Angelfood Cake for a dinner with friends. I hope I'll remember to take photos to share with you all. And if it turns out really well, I'll share the recipe with you!

P.S. Some of you have commented on how early I get up to write my posts. While I do get up quite early, I actually prepare my posts the night before and schedule them to get published bright and early in the morning. It just makes it easier for me and assures that my post happens even if my morning gets to be really busy.


  1. These look so real I might accidently eat one!xx

  2. HELLO HELLO HELLO HELLO. I am sneaking in here before I get out of bed and rush for the day.

    Those polymer clay foods - amazing. She is a genius. I could gobble all of them. They are so realistic.

    Oh your lucky friends to eat the cake. I shall return and scroll through everything I have missed. I have not returned my comments yet. This weekend - laundry and blog visiting. Oh how exciting, the life I lead! Hahahahah! Have a great day Silke dearest!

  3. Good Morning, Silke! Thanks for visiting my blog. I LOVE reading your! Love, Judy

  4. Those look so real! Amazing...there are such talented people out there!
    And I LOVE the turqoise and red pot holders. That color combination is DY-NO-MITE.

  5. Silke, I'd EAT that darned jewelry!!! Dang! That's amazing!
    Love your pothlders; my grandmother used to make those for us. Had them for years and years, until finally they wore out.
    I need to get back in the habit of getting a post in the can the night before; it makes life so much easier and gives me so much more day. I think I still have not adjusted to the time change.....


  6. as a former girl scout who spent several summers making potholders for family, friends, teachers, & strangers, i crown you the 'best potholders ever made' award. really great and obviously durable, silke. i'll bet crate and barrel would be interested in seeing a sample or two...

    this food is amazing; however, it makes me nervous to see something so appealing when i know i would crack my teeth! deborah's christmas ornaments were in this catagory: so beautiful and lucious. i had to remind my mind, "no! you cannot eat them!"


  7. jewelry! How yummy!!! She's very creative and talented - thanks for posting about it. And your pot holders are lovely - I especially like the colors you selected for your own kitchen - very pretty.
    Hope you have a lovely weekend and that cake sounds divine. :) Theresa

  8. Those are great pot holders. Food jewelry, how great. Wow! They look so real. I'm hungry now and I sure would love a piece of your cake. Take care and have a great weekend.

  9. your creations...

    and those other, non edible edibles...are divine...i would be hungry if I was bedecked in that sort of jewelry!

    ciao's to rising early!


  10. Wow - that polymer clay mini food is amazing! I would never have the patience to do that - never mind, that I don't have the ability.
    Chocolate Cherry Angelfood - now I'm hungry!!!

  11. OMG I bet if I had those I would lose weight. Or eat 'em. Great potholders Silke and thanks for the comment. You inspired my new 'inspiration'. Let's hope it works!

  12. you are so inspiring Silke!!!
    i love visiting your blog...
    i love reading what you have to say...
    i love looking at your paintings and beautiful pictures...

    thank you for you!!

    happy friday

    Ooh, I love the dark blue/yellow potholder, Silke. These are really looking great!

  16. I admire your organisation when it comes to blogging.
