1:48 breads

It's such a pleasure when you order miniatures, and something arrives that is absolutely perfect.
These quarter scale loaves and buns are delightful! So tiny, and beautifully presented!! The largest buns are only 2mm (1/16") across.
They come from the friendly Ruth at Stewart Dollhouse Creations, where there's a fabulous range of handmade minis offered. It's well worth a visit if you like mini cakes, cross stitch, artwork, wallpaper, laser-cut doilies, and lots more. Lots of 1:24 and 1:48 scale minis, too.
Check out the butterflies, and the Mona Lisa cross stitch kit :)

This bread is happily going into my medieval kitchen. It's not that easy finding medieval food in this scale, as most quarter scale seems to be aimed at modern settings. I'm very grateful to find such a good website - I'm amazed by this tiny food. There'd be some some very bad language if I tried to make it! :)



  1. Sooooooo tiny, they are! I have recently ordered food myself for the tribal kitchen :). I don't think I will ever want to try making food, real life, 1/12 or 1/144 :). Bad language? hah! You may see me running around with a knife (Exacto of course) screaming in frustration :).

  2. Oh they really are tiny! Glad you found good source of 1:48 miniatures.:)
    As for bad language I guess there is no miniaturist who is not using it form time to time!;D

  3. oh my gosh-they are so amazing! I can't imagine making something so tiny- and there is so much detail!

  4. As far as I'm concerned, I curse using strong expressions common in Old Babylon, just to give you a hint... (LOL) This food is amazing (but nothing to deal with when you have a cold... teehee), I really admire food makers - especially in this size. Hope you'll show us more of your project soon.


  5. Dear Glenda, your purchases are always illuminating: you have a flair for the exceptional quality miniatures.
    Intrigues me very much this new project medieval, perhaps because I'm maturing some ideas that bring me a little back in time than the Victorian era ...
    The bread is very realistic and makes me hungry :-)
    Forgive me for not having yet sent anything by Beatrix Potter ... I hope soon :-)
    Mini hugs, Flora

  6. Glenda - they are so tiny!!! Good advice from Birgit not to sneeze!! I don't know how you can work in such small detail without going crazy! We miniaturist sure love a challenge!!

  7. Que maravilla, una cosita tan pequeña y tan preciosa, enhorabuena.
