Flossy and Bluebelle Beat the Heat!

We've been having a heatwave again here in Portland. It feels like the summer has been one long heatwave. Luckily for Flossy and Bluebelle, they've got yummy tropical drinks to help them beat the heat.


The coconut drinks are so cooling, in fact, that Flossy and Bluebelle feel as if they've been transported to a tropical paradise:


Meanwhile, Flossy has been baking again. This time she made chocolate chip cookies and strawberry waffles...


...AND two kinds of cake!


Mmm, if the drinks aren't enough to take their minds off the heat, these tasty treats will do the trick! Bluebelle makes a mental note to come visit Flossy's Cupcake Cottage more often. ;-)

Hope you all are doing well! Making mini food is a lot of fun! Until next time, keep having fun, whatever you're doing! xoxo Jennifer

  1. It really looks like a tropical paradise here, can I come too?! I do love the heat, and animals! Would love to sit down beside Flossy and Bluebelle, but I guess I'm too big....

  3. I'm sorry for the heatwave, I wished, you could send some of the heat to Germany :D - it's cold and rainy here since months, no summer at all.
    I love your miniature food!!! It looks awesome, especially the waffers with the little strawberries. Yummy! :) Bluebell really should visit Flossy more often... and me too :D

    with poly clay. I hope this one will be the last heatwave for you this summer.
    Great displays. Each can be a cute postcard.

  7. An other heat wave, oh my :O?!! No wonder that they have to drink cool tropical drinks, yummy :)! I love your baked cakes and waffles, Jen, they look so delicious :D! And they make lovely scenes!
    Stay cool, but don't drink too much of the tropical cocktails ;)!

  8. Flossy and Bluebelle really know how to make the best out of every situation... ;O) Thank you for giving me a broad grin with the palm that appeared in the background. And all your treats look so yummy... no wonder those two enjoy themselves. And could there be a higher compliment than a professional keeper of a bakery decides to visit Flossy more often to enjoy her baking results? ;O) Thank you for this lovely post - hope you'll stay cool too!

    Hugs
