I've been mulling over some new ideas for cup cakes for a while. It's nice being able to bounce between knitting rabbits and knitting cakes - both are enjoyable in different ways and involve different techniques (variety is the spice of life and all that...). Anyway, I wanted to knit up some seasonal cakes for Easter. The inspiration for these came a while ago when I was making a rabbit called Bunny Slippers. As I was making her I thought that the little bunny heads might look sweet on cakes and here's the result.
The other cakes I've been experimenting with are inspired by the work of Kylie Lambert - a woman of great artistry and skill who creates edible cakes so beautiful that it seems a shame to stick a cake fork into them. I am continually stunned by the detail and perfection of her cakes, she's got a magical touch and must have a very steady hand. Anyway, inspired by her beautiful work, here are a few interpretations in yarn!
