Kind of crazy...but I do like that you can use the layers to store dishes :teehee:

Well, I certainly can't imagine making it and what you'd make it for it is pretty cute. :teehee:

That might be cute for a bridal shower, but it sure looks like a lot of work! :shock:

Why make somethin that looks so delicious if you cannot eat it?

09-15-2007, 03:55 PM
If someone wanted to make that fine... but to use Ultra Alpaca for it???

Sheesh... no kiddin. I could use a new camera.... maybe I'll just knit one. :teehee:

If I made something like that my DH would be applying for an early AARP card. Although miniature of that could be really cute as a gifted wedding present topper. Now, what the lovely new couple would do with a miniature 3 layer wedding cake is beyond me!

OH, the miniature would be so cute, used in a bridal shower, for what....I don't know, LOL! But cute it would be!

I think it's really cute. I'd never make it. What for? But when I saw it I thought I could use the directions to at least crochet flowers for accessories. Maybe for the type who like to do toys and stuff, one layer of the cake would be enough.

V.cool that it's for storing dishes :D But yes... Alpaca??? Maybe a nice cotton.. LOL

If you have glass doors in kitchen cabinets, it would be a great way to store dishes and keep them pretty and clean.

I have a sister who is a professional cake designer. Hrmmmm...

Tell me about it! - total torment - if I had to look at that wedding cake for any length of time, Christmas would come very early this year.

Hmm - wonder if I've enough mixed fruit and cherries in the cupboard? We've got loads of caster sugar, just check if there are enough eggs .... something weird about these knitted cakes in this place - they keep turning into real ones overnight - very strange - must be sleep-baking.

I love the flowers they made though... I'd use those on a simple white pillow maybe... :)

Neat Wedding Gift!

A mini cake would be a great ornament!!!! :)

that would be great if it was identical to the bride and groom's real wedding cake or as a gift, filled with a set of dishes for the new couple.

The only circumstances under which I can see myself making this are:
1. I'm making a very small version.
2. I'm using very cheap acrylic.
3. I have NOTHING else to do.
4. I am on very heavy medication.

cute in theory I guess, but I'd be torturing myself after about 20 minutes into it.

I have a niece that doesn't eat sweets. She just does not like them. I could see her having something like this so that she could have a birthday, wedding, or whatever cake -- without having to eat it, too.

I could see someone making it for storing their dishes. However, making a tiered wedding cake like that just doesn't seem right. The bride and groom would both have to be knitters ........

09-17-2007, 09:16 AM
I actually thought it was a pretty neat idea and way to store china for those without a china closet!!!

09-17-2007, 09:53 AM
Hmmmm, :think: no. Nope, no way. Not for me.
