My daughters 6th Birthday: Our first window box

Greetings mini folk!

My daughter will be turning 6 in March and I have been thinking on what to make for her. My daughter loves these things: Pink...cake...pink cakes..pink cupcakes..eating pink cupcakes..

I am sure most of you moms know, when you start creating mini items, if you little one is around you better think on making two..because....

"Mom can I have a ____ like that" ;)

So my daughter loves the mini cakes, cupcakes and girly pink things.
 
Bakery Window box
 
 
 
As you can see I have started with some of the 10 Michael's hutches we have all collected . I created matching furniture with balsa wood and tongue depressors < shocker Jane>
 
I did the shabby..kinda look..  guess I call it girly but I did want the dented repainted look.
 
 
 
 
Since this will be a window box and not a full scale item, I based the rest of the display shelves on the hutch and a paper template to get the basic fit for the entire shop.
 
 
A lot of cakes and cupcakes to be made.. a lot of printies, signs etc..
 
And of course I have to be pretty sneaky..stealth box, hidey hands ;P
 
 
Wish me luck..oh were about to be hit with 2 feet of snow.
