1:12 Dim Sum by Bon-AppetEats 1:12 Dim Sum by Bon-AppetEats
1:12 Dim Sum, made from polymer clay. Baskets purchased on Etsy.

First part of my Japanese Tea House commissions. Yes, I know that this isn't Japanese food, but it's what the person who commissioned me wanted. I wish I had more of these baskets since I'd love to make more. :)

These look good enough to eat! It's amazing how you make them so small!

I wouldn't mind trying DimSum but can't seem to find a good starting place. Looks really delicious.

Do you have an Asian market near you? They sell frozen pork buns and dumplings there usually - the same you'd find at a dim sum place. It's a good place to start. :)

I have been craving dim sum ever since I made these. Haven't found a place near by that sells them. :( I did find an all you can eat sushi place, though, so it wasn't a total loss!

Oh my gosh, I don't think that food has ever looked so adorable.  I have no clue how you work on such a small scale (baskets the size of a dime, goodness) but you have real talent.  Like you shrunk real food or something.

Thank you! I can't take credit for the baskets though. I only made the dumplings inside. :)

Well, aren't there potstickers in there...? I'm pretty sure I see potstickers next to those dumplings and whatever that orange stuff is... Potstickers are made in Japan too... I think... Cuz at this Japanese restaurant I go to, they make potstickers...

Those are some sort of shrimp dumpling, if I remember correctly. A little different than the pot stickers. :)
