How to make fake food for reborn baby dolls?

A reborn doll is a life-like doll that has been assembled and customized by an artist to resemble a real-life infant. There are some cases that those hyper-realistic baby dolls have been occasionally mistaken for a real baby, because of its realistic appearances. Since the reborn movement in the late 1990s, creating reborns become popular within the doll-making community. Some people keep a hobby of collecting reborn dolls as they think this is a form of art and has values. With the gradually exposing of these art dolls on social media, many people love them and enjoy the source of comfort. In addition, parents would like to choose silicone reborn babies as a gift for their little children, according to the reborn doll guide online.
