learn how to make a crocheted cake


If you love the look of frilly buttercream-covered cakes, but feel much comfier with a crochet hook in hand as opposed to a piping bag, we have a dreamy craft project for you. It comes courtesy of crochet queen Twinkie Chan, who’s put together a PDF pattern for a heart-shaped cake. The cake base is easy enough for beginners, but – full warning – things get complicated when it comes to the piped decorations and mini cherries. If you’re ready for a challenge, head here to purchase the complete pattern (it’ll cost you around $7).
