While I am attempting to type in a ridiculously long recipe (for what turns out to be a relatively simple-to-assemble dish) I leave you with a link to some of the most whimsical, lovely food-and-tiny-toy tableaus:
John emailed me with these last week and I have been repeatedly visiting them when I need a dose of whimsy.
Note--the site is in French but is manageable even if you don't read the language. If you have trouble navigating it, here are a few tips: Once you get past the intro page (just a fancy script with some pretty dots and French text floating around) there is a small dark gray dot at the lower right hand corner of your screen. It brings up the site menu--go to the "Galerie" listing and click on a subset for a tour of the photos. Small arrows down by the dark gray dot allow you to navigate the photos.
