I went all-out on my daughter’s Easter basket this year. She is finally old enough to get excited about gifts and new toys! I bought a cute little tea set, but no tea party is complete without delicate little snacks, so I crocheted up some precious cakes from acrylic yarn I already had in my stash. All four of them were finished in two days.
The shortcake with three strawberries was made from a pattern by Norma Lynn Hood, except that I closed the bottom since I was stuffing the cake instead of inserting a sachet. I made the bodies of the other three cakes from the same pattern with embellishments of my own creation.
The offspring LOVES them, so I don’t think they’re making it into the Easter basket, but they will still go wonderfully with her tea set.
