Celebrate a special day with a knitted cake. This cake has 2 tiers and is decorated with icing, bunting and candles, but you can decorate your cake with other embellishments to personalise it. A perfect calorie-free treat for weddings or birthdays!

Designed by Amanda Berry @fluffandfuzz, the cake is knitted in acrylic DK yarns. The cakes and icing are knitted in the round on a circular needle using the magic loop method. The banner is knitted flat (back and forth) on the circular needle. The Yellow zigzag ribbon decoration is a single crochet chain worked on the crochet hook. The candles are i- cord tubes worked on the circular needle (or swap for two double pointed needles).
