Slice for the cook

Vintage baking


Almost ready to bake in miniature. The table is set and the appliances and utensils are ready.
Can you guess what will be made? I am sure it will be something delicious.

A trip to the food court


Saturday and a perfect day to visit Oslo's food court called "Mathallen". A great place to find those special ingredients like "fleur de sel" witch I find quite addicting. It tastes so much better than normal salt I think. Also I wanted to check the stand called "Hello pie" I love pies, who doesn't anyway?, and I ended up buying a portion of the lemon meringue pie. Tart and perfectly balanced with a touch of sweetness in the meringue.

Have a great weekend!

Berry Crumble


How about some berry crumble? I love making this in the fall in real life when the berries are ripe and juicy. No trouble making it in the winter either as berries is so easy to find nowdays, fresh or frozen. Still the miniature variation you see here must be my favorite.

If you haven't already checked my new blog THE MINI MICE out I hope you do so. My mice are always busy cooking something, and one day they might even share a recipe for a crumble. I wouldn't be surprised if they did, so to speak...



Are you planning a feast meal today? It's Halloween and time to celebrate. Please come and see what the mini mice are up to for Halloween. They have been Trick and treating. The Mini Mice

French treats


A picture from some French inspired treats, made in miniature. Hope this weekend will provide good weather, as we are visiting a new large exiting food hall in Oslo. Hope I get lots of inspiration. I will take some picture and show you later. What are you up to this weekend?

Making apples


It surely suits the weather these days to sculpt apples. Rosy apples for the mice so they can make cider, apple cakes and crumbles.

A new mouse house


The minimice blog.

The latest house I am currently working on will be the the largest house in the apple tree garden. I think it has as much as 19 rooms, both large and small.This house was traded to me by Kari Mette Tvedt. It first belonged to Hild Tove Aslaksen. Both Norwegian miniaturist.They have put some effort into this house and I would like to thank and credit them for it.The baguette holder is also made by Kari Mette Tvedt. She is a very talented basket maker. Please come over to
and join their stories and try their recipes.

The Mini Mice, a new blog!


I have made a new blog devoted to the mini mice I am currently making. The blog is called
The mini mice. Please come on over and say hello. I would love for you to become a follower as well. The mini mice will show you their recipes from their kitchen. All tested beforehand of course. You will also see how they live and what they are up to. I will still have this blog Little Treasure for all kind of minis.

Here is a peak of what they have been up too..Today they are making crêpes, and I have included the recipe.

The Mini Mice

Piano practice


More mice has arrived the old apple tree. The mice are playing the piano in the ballroom

The mouse is here


Here you have mr Mice. The first one made with flocking. The cat is very curious, but I actually think they can become friends
It was great fun to get to know you Cat, but I have some work to do. Better clean those floors.

Cider making




The cider making has started in the mouse house. I bought some ready made bottles that I made new labels for. Also made the wooden crates.



Now I need to make hundreds of apples to put in crates and for the pressing machine. Weird to make them after the cider has been made though, but in mini world one can actually do that…

Summer feast


Today there's a summer feast in the mouse house kitchen. Fresh cooked lobster, salad and bread.
A potholder has been added to the kitchen. Those mice sure  like to cook.

Mouse house bedroom

Mouse house..a peak


                No sight of the mice yet…guess they are out blueberry picking or something. Before they left they made some very nice smelling breads in the kitchen.   Here you can see some of my purchase that  I bought while I was in London. Beautiful porcelain by Avon. I think they were made for my mouse house.     Look what they left on the counter..     The beautiful “flie” cabinet on the table was made by Kari Mette Tvedt. They will be storing pies and eggs in it.   Have a terrific weekend. The mice says hello..;) [...]

Mouse house


Lately I have spent some time on the large mouse house mansion. It’s a big apple tree and as I have told you before they will be producing apple cider and apple pies in the kitchen. It is not finished yet but wanted you to see how it looks at this stage. I like the terrace addition I made on the top and the apple tree flowers gives it a cozy feel I think.                                                                  The house is so large that it is hard to take pictures of it.                                A close up of the bark and flowers. The lighting is bad, no sunshine nearby me, only rain and dark clouds. Doesn't make good pictures, but it makes me creative and work inside so it’s good for something.                                                                           Impatiently waiting for the mice to move in….[...]

Norwegian chocolate


Today me and my husband had a trip to Oslo in Norway for lunch.  We also visited a little chocolate shop. Not far from our home, just a quick drive in nice spring weather. I wanted to show you what we have to offer from my country. I am sure I speak for most Norwegians when saying that we have the best chocolate in the world. The company Freia was founded in 1889, but real success was seen only in 1892, when Johan Throne Holst (1868–1946) took over management. Holst built up Freia to be Norway's leading chocolate manufacturer. By the turn of the century, Freia was the leading Norwegian brand in sweets. We bought some chocolates called twist. We wanted to celebrate our 22 wedding anniversary today.                                                                                  From the shop:                              Lovely boxes with silk ribbons filled with superior chocolate                                                                                                             From the interior                     I also love the porcelain with the cutest drawings with a retro feel to it. Some of the cups and plates has recipes written on them. The hot chocolate shouldn’t be to hard to make if one have one of these I would think.                A selection of a chocolate called twist. In most stores you have to buy a ready filled bag with assorted chocolates. In this little chocolate store on Karl Johan street it is allowed to just pick your favorite, and everyone has a favorite. For me it’s the milk chocolate with apricot cream filling and the dark chocolate with banana cream.  My husband wanted the licorice and caramel.                                          This is what we bought with us, a small bag with our favorites        A large Freia sign that by night lights up the street “Karl Johan” Thanks for the visit and we will be back soon for more. ( I have not been paid to make this post by the way)[...]

Mouse house next generation


This is a new project I have started. Another mouse house! It is very tall and will have many small rooms as you see. The sculpting process is quite tedious so it will take a while for it to finish, but as you see I am almost done with inside décor. I will make it into an apple tree, cozy and with a English cottage feel to it. I will show you more pictures as it evolves. The idea is that the mice will make their on apple cider in the basement and apple pies in the kitchen. How fun is that? Thanks for looking and I hope you all are enjoying spring these days.



A selection of chocolates, cakes, puddings and some tiny tarts.             [...]
