Although you can paint faux baking cases or baking cups on dolls house muffins and cupcakes (fairy cakes), sometimes you need a pastry case to show off special pastries in a bakery or tea shop scene. The same technique used for making cases suitable for cookies and pastries, can be used to make case suitable for smaller miniatures, like scale chocolates for a chocolate box. Making the molds is fairly easy, but the cases will only work if you make them from a suitable thin paper.

The molds for these cases can be made from either polymer clay or silicone mold putty and marettes. If you want to make cases for tiny miniatures, like the chocolates shown above, you will need to carve the fluted mold on the end of a toothpick or on the end of a roll of polymer clay.
