Pandan leaf.

How is summer treating you guys? 

It's unbearably hot here. I step out into the outside and even without the sun glaring down, the heated warm air hits my skin and beads of perspiration form instantly. :(

Today, I have a close-up of the streaks of green in the pandan leaf on the miniature tutu kueh. 
(that's a lot of prepositions in one sentence)

In case you didn't know, pandan leaves are widely used in Southeast Asian delicacies, as it lends a refreshing fragrance especially when it's cooked together with the pastry. Pandan is such a unique SEA-ian spice, so proud of our ancestors who found out about it haha.

Oh and a heads-up, I'll be opening up commission slots next week! ♥


  1. Hi there, I was wondering if you could share with me on how you made the little pandan leaf look so real. It's amazing. :) thanks!

    1. Hi Samantha, thanks for liking the little leaf! :) You can google for 'polymer clay stacking method' as I used that method to make the dark and light green lines on the leaf. It's quite hard to describe what the method is here, so hopefully you find useful information!

    2. Oh wow! That was made with clay too? I originally thought it was a paper material you used! Amazing! Keep up the beautiful work! Thanks for sharing! Do keep us posted on when you would be conducting more workshops. Would love to learn from you! :)
