Cake Amigurumi Crochet

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!
