Where To Find Miniature Foods – 6 Store Reviews

Just recently, I have written a blog post on how to make miniature food, and I intend to write many more tutorials. But I also wanted to share with you lots of miniature foods (looking like real food) that you can purchase on Etsy.

Let’s dive into 6 Etsy stores today, but first, I want to give you some insights on something!

As an Amazon and Etsy associate, I earn a small commission from your purchase, with no extra charges for you.

But first: where to buy REAL Miniature Food?


The reason I wanted to throw in this question first on this blog post, was because I have actually seen it frequently on miniature food cooking blogs and on social media, which I found peculiar enough to try and answer it for you!

So this question : “where to buy Real miniature food” was a bit difficult for me to answer, because what you actually get to see on selling sites, is mostly miniature food kitchen equipment, and not the food itself!

And the miniature “food” that you DO see in stores online, are just packages and don’t contain actual food that you can do your miniature cooking with.

I found one exception though and that is this product called “Hello Tiny”, sold on Etsy, which has tiny little edible popcorn, tiny marshmallow rice bars, and even a complete kit for making miniature edible smores!

The other “real” miniature food used in tiny miniature food kitchens is actual food used in tiny portions (or IS actually tiny, like a tiny fish or fine rice noodle), and you can find 1000+ recipes all over the internet, as in the video below:

For dry baking ingredients, use small pinches of standard items, and for liquids, employ a medicine dropper to control small quantities in miniature containers.

When it comes to eggs, consider using quail eggs, and for fish, opt for actual tiny fish like anchovies for an authentic seafood touch.

Trim or pinch bits of full-size items like meat, cheese, fruits, and vegetables to achieve realistic proportions.

Use small mushroom varieties like Enoki or White Beach for mushrooms, and choose smaller pasta options like angel hair or orzo.

Utilize the tiny core of a red onion as a mini onion. Lastly, for miniature shrimp dishes, select extra small shrimp, and cut grape tomatoes to represent realistic miniature tomatoes.

I hope that this answers the question?

  2. I’m both a seller and buyer on Etsy, so vested interest declared. I’ve been using Etsy frequently for both in the last two years and I’ve not had any problems. It just feels a lot nicer than eBay, there just doesn’t seem to be the starting point of an assumption of criminality / cheating that you get on there. Also, as a seller of handmade goods, it’s better as everyone knows what they are getting; you probably pay more but it won’t just be cheap stuff off Alibaba imported and sold on cheaply by a logistics company.

    • Hi Emmanuel!

      I totally agree with you, I buy lots of things on Etsy myself, and so does my family! I just love the way you can buy personalized gifts for everyone on Etsy. And most of all: handmade 🙂

      Thanks for your comment!

      Best regards,

      Lizzy
