When I found out A was buying a house- I wanted to make something for her...something that was functional- but cute and fun. After searching around the Internet I came across this idea at bittersweetblog.
I fell in love! And how simple!
I used 100% cotton yarn. One of my favorite brands of yarn is sugar n'cream (it's easy to find and has vibrant colors- although it can be more difficult to crochet with). The colors I chose were hot pink and hot purple for the icing, and jute for the cake part.
