This assortment of dollhouse scale muffins and cupcakes (fairy cakes) are made from polymer clay using a simple mold made from two part silicone mold putty. With a variety of polymer clay blends, you can make any muffin, or cupcake flavor you want. After the clay has baked (cured) you can ice your creations with acrylic paint and add decorations made from polymer clay.

The mold for these muffins uses either electrical marettes from the hardware store or building supply store, or a suitable cap from a squeeze tube. The key is to find a shape with small lines, similar to the lines made by a baking cup in a muffin pan.

Similar molds in various sizes can be used to make standard white casserole dishes, even small Crème Brûlée dishes from suitable squeeze caps. If you use acrylic paint in the same mold, you can make cupcake papers, or muffin pan liners to add to a baking prep display.
