Say Hello To…MiniPatisserie

Today we say hello to Caroline of MiniPatisserie who makes the most adorable polymer clay jewellery. She will be conducting a workshop where you can make your own creations from polymer clay and take home to bake yourself.

“I would like a miniature cake-themed jewellery craze to sweep the nation so I can get well on the way to making my first million. Other than that I’m really looking forward to running my first workshop at the Fairy Tale Fair.”– Caroline

Tell us a bit about you and what you do/ make….

I’m Caroline from MiniPatisserie and I have been making polymer clay jewellery to sell for the last couple of years, although I started making things for my sister’s Sylvanian families a couple of decades ago.

Do you have a best seller? If so what is it?

My miniature jars of marshamallows are very popular.

What do you enjoy most about your craft?

I like thinking up ideas of miniature cakes to make and watching kids pick their favourite.

Do you take part in other craft events (fairs, open houses, markets etc…)?

I have had a stall at quite a few small festivals in Brighton and have been part of a couple of exhibitions. I have also sold my jewellery in shops in Lewes and Brighton.

You will be providing a workshop for The Fairy Tale Fair- what will your workshop involve?

People will get the chance to make their own polymer clay charms to attach to jewellery, which they can then take home to bake in their oven.

What are your plans/ ambitions for the future? Or have you already achieved them?

I would like a miniature cake-themed jewellery craze to sweep the nation so I can get well on the way to making my first million. Other than that I’m really looking forward to running my first workshop at the Fairy Tale Fair.

Tell us a bit about Mayflower events and how it started?
Mayflower Events was started by three sisters, Lucy, Robyn and Harriet a few years ago – it combines our mutual love of good homemade food and pretty vintage china. We love baking cakes and other sweet treats and then serving them at tearooms and other events on our beautiful vintage china. We have a great selection of pretty tea pots, cute tea cups & saucers, cake plates sugar bowls and milk jugs that we hire out for events such as weddings, baby showers and christenings.

Do you have a bestseller?
We sold out of all of our cakes and other treats at the last two fairs so it’s very hard to say what was our absolute bestseller as everything went so quickly! However, our lemon drizzle cake is always very popular – the key to a good lemon drizzle is getting lots of lovely zesty lemon flavour into the cake to balance the sweetness of the sponge and the homemade sausage rolls received really good feedback.

You took part in our previous two fairs, did you enjoy them?
The last two fairs were fabulous fun – so many good quality, talented craft stalls run by some wonderful people. As soon as the doors opened, the fairs were jammed full of visitors having a great time.

What treats can we expect from you in our spring vintage tearoom?
We have lots of yummy treats planned for the vintage tearoom in Spring – all of our food is homemade with really good quality ingredients. There will be the usual delicious cakes including carrot cake, coffee cake, apple cake, victoria sponge and also cupcakes, Easter cookies, hotcross buns and then some savoury items such as sausage rolls and pasties filled with a spicy chickpea, tomato and spinach mix.
