Marie: yeah, those cupcakes are a lot of fun to knit. (I'll be putting the patterns up on my blog next week sometime.) Having now seen this cake, I might have to try a jokey little knitted cupcake that looks like a ball of yarn!

Wow to both the knitting cake and the knitted cakes. I would love those patterns Zina. Puts the TARDIS (from Dr Who) cake I made for my daughter in the shade ad that took hours

I can't believe that's a cake. I want one. But no one can eat it - I'd shellac it and make it a centerpiece on the dining room table! Awesome!
