What’s sweet and lovely? The coworker I made this cake amigurumi crochet for, of course!
My coworker Rabia loves cake! We’ve bonded over going out and finding the best cake in the vicinity of our building – and she’s told me all about Great Cakes She Has Known. So when I drew her name for secret santa, I knew just what I had to do!
This little cake has a dollop of cream and a strawberry on top. I wrapped it in a takeaway cake container, and popped it in a bag from the cafe chain Eat, which said “Eat and Be Merry” on the side – perfect! To round out the gift, I added a tiny Yankee Candle in Vanilla Cupcake scent. To be honest, I only added this so I’d spent some money on the gift. Our secret santa exchange was up to a set price limit, and although I’d put in a couple of hours work on the cake amigurumi crochet, I was worried that I hadn’t done enough.
I shouldn’t have! My coworker loved her gift, not just because it was well-suited to her cake-loving tastes. She’d seen something similar in a shop window once, and had been so enamoured she took a photo and showed her mother and sister. She never showed me the photo – this was a big coincidence – but she was delighted to have a crochet cake of her very own.
Rabia also loved the candle – I had no idea she collects Yankee Candles, so now we have another thing to talk about on our cake-dates.
There’s no pattern for this cake, but I think I might write one up. Would you like to see a pattern? Tell me in the comments if so!

As crafters, we think a lot about Travel Knitting in capital letters – what to pack for a long plane ride and so on. This is travel knitting. But what about when travel knitting is every day knitting? No soft Mediterranean breezes, no pool, no sangria (well… maybe just a little). Instead, just you on the […]
All week I’ve been humming raindrops keep fallin’ on my head. All because of these adorable crochet amigurumi raindrops!
