Why would anyone want to knit a cake? You may well ask.
I knitted the 2 doughnuts and the chocolate gateau slice. Honestly I yearned for a piece of chocolate cake while I was knitting that one!
What I learned was that
- it was great knitting practice for using dpns (double pointed needles)
- following the pattern instructions was a great learning experience
- The cakes would make great toys for a children's Wendy house.
I also knitted a Rooster cosy like the one in this picture out of a single hank of Colinette wool.
Have you knitted food or would you regard it as a pointless exercise?
I visited a Café in St. Ives, Cornwall that had a display in their window. It looked great.
