Making Doll Food: Cinnamon Rolls

Yum! What doll would say ‘no’ to a delicious, iced cinnamon rolls, fresh from the oven? Well, cinnamon rolls are a very popular breakfast option for my daughter’s dolls, and I am sure your dolls will enjoy them, too!

These rolls also make a cute addition to Grace Thomas’s Bakery, coffee shop, or school lunch!

Fresh from the Oven!

I make a ton of these rolls for my Etsy shop, LifeInOneThirdScale. However, if you would rather make your own, I put together a short video tutorial, below.

To make these rolls, you will need:

  • Dough- colored polymer clay,
  • Clay tools (toothbrush, needle tool, rolling pin, aluminum foil)
  • Soft pastels
  • Soft bristled paintbrushes
  • Translucent Liquid Sculpey
  • Glass baking pan
  • Straight-edged blade/ Knife

Watch the video and make some baked goods for your dolls! They will thank you!

  1. I was so pleased to see that you are posting again. I just recently started attempting polymer clay AG doll food and I’m struggling a bit with scale. Some of the items we’ve purchased seem much smaller , so that when I make them in what I feel is the appropriate scale everything is out of proportion. Do you always use one third scale or do you find yourself adjusting it down? Thanks for sharing your very unique craft ideas!

    1. Hi, Sally. Some of the doll food from Target can be much smaller than one-third scale, from my experience. When I make food, I try to keep the doll’s hand in mind, so the dolls can hold the food, if possible. With that in mind, scale of fruits (berries, apples, etc.) can vary quite a bit, just like real food. When I make strawberries, for example, I make a wide variety of sizes and hues, so that they look more realistic. I hope this helped, and I hope you continue creating with polymer clay!

  2. Hi, I found you and your videos on or around Christmas Day, or was it New Years, anyway it was very recent. After I had finished watching a video from American Girl Ideas, your most recent video popped up, which was all about your doll food. I watched almost all of your videos in one day. Your ideas and techniques are just wonderful. Thanks for posting and sharing on your blog and videos. I look forward to many more. Now I just need to start trying them. I’d be interested in watching you create your peaches. They look so realistic, down to the seed and all. So much better than the store bought doll food. ( the funny part for me requesting this is that I don’t like to eat fresh peaches, I preferred canned, it’s the fuzzy skin I think, but yours are just so cool!) of course anything you post is fascinating to me! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I have a girl crush on you! I have had a hard time finding anything that looks so real. I can’t wait to try making these, I’m not crafty at all, should just order them from you. I’m going to give it a try. Where is the best place to buy the polymer clay and Sculpey and what brand do you recommend?

    1. Haha, Thanks! I use Sculpey III and Fimo clay, most of the time. I usually order from or buy from Michael’s crafts when I can.
