I am continually amazed at how life-like many of our miniature food items are. From cakes to a large assortment of fruits and vegetables, our Fairies and Gnomes always have plenty to eat. I remember we were 'dog sitting' our neighbors Labrador, Lady, and she was intently watching as we were packing up an order of miniature bread loaves for a customer in the mid-west. As luck would have it, the loaf jumped out (with the help of a mischievous Fairy perhaps?) and landed right in front of Lady. She quickly pounced but was a second too late as I grabbed the loaf on a bounce. Lady's disappointment was quickly eased when her loaf was replaced by a proper treat, but I will never forget the look on her face when she felt she had been cheated!
