Tiny Pastry Erasers (A Tutorial)


I was resting in bed today getting ready for my surgery tomorrow and decided to make some cute little pastry erasers. A small crafting project…..so I wouldn’t make too big of a mess in my bed. Aren’t they cute? I could see these being “Barbie food” too…..so tiny and realistic:


I used a fun product called Clayzee…..the eraser version. It’s like a putty and you put it in the microwave (in water) once you are done and it turns into an eraser!

To make a brown color I mixed a bunch of the colors together:


They blend really easily for mixing:


I made a donut first….by making a flat circle and poking a hole through the middle:


I made a flat pancake piece for pink icing:


I molded the icing over the top almost like a fondant!


To make sprinkles I rolled out a thin piece of Clayzee and chopped little pieces off:


Each sprinkle was carefully placed on the donut:


I made a chocolate cupcake base using a piece of black Clayzee and used a knife to etch lines in the side:


For the icing, I rolled out a really, really long piece of white Clayzee:


I wound the icing up on top of the cupcake and then added some sprinkles:



Some finished sprinkles! Follow the directions on the Clayzee box but these need to be set using a microwave and water before they are actually “erasers”:


Speaking of pastries….check out these amazing cookies my friend Mollie brought over today! They were made by Tiffany’s Sweet Spot in La Quinta. She got the “Choose Joy” graphic perfectly!


I’ve got to figure out how to preserve one of these!

    Very cute.
    I wish you all the best, and strength for your whole family. I was really shocked to read your story; you’re in my prayers. I hope the surgery went well.

    These cookies are the nicest! The Lads and I hope that your surgery went well and you will be recovering in record time…those postop donuts aren’t going to eat themselves! And surely, you get the pass to eat those bad boys, all you like! Really hoping that all went well and you get some rest and some peace….take care of yourself, please!

    Love the erasers but have to say about the cookies: as one who has done decorating, makes me tired just looking at them!! How labor intensive!! And then they are eaten!! Such a waste! Hope you find a way to preserve one (or more!!!)

    Praying hard for you this week, and will be tuning in to your blog to find out how it all goes. You are one of only 3 blogs that I read which I am inspired by so much that I have an email feed to you instead of having you on my Google Reader. I fell in love with your blog when you wrote about your dads passing. CHOOSE JOY is the most beautiful post and I hope you never ever take that sidebar away because I come back to it often for inspiration. I have had all my kids and my husband read it recently. I know you must feel so much strength from your dad during your trials now. God bless you and yours in the days ahead. I know you will choose joy! Blessings, Tia

    I just found your blog three days ago through Pinterest. I love your crafts and ideas. I had to read more once I saw the word oncology in your post. I have a daughter about your daughter’s age and am a stay-at-home mom and wife to an awesome guy. I can’t imagine going through what you are and still remaining so positive. I just wanted you to know I believe in the power of prayer and will be praying for you and your healing! Thanks for being such an inspiration.

    How sweet! I don’t know if I can get this stuff in Germany, but it would definitely be worth asking auntie Google ;)

    This is so creative and intricate! It seems like children would love it. Have you used this idea for making other erasers, holiday themed perhaps?
