Last weekend I had the pleasure of making a cake for Patricia’s Yarns who was celebrating their 5th year in Hoboken, NJ. As creative license was left up to me, I thought it would be a sweet design for this Hoboken yarn shop to have a messenger bag with 5 skeins of yarn spilling out. Patricia had requested that her logo be incorporated, so I made it fairly prominent on the bag as the label. There were also three “5’s” incorporated into the yarn – can you spot them all?
This cake was comprised of a chocolate devil’s food cake filled & frosted with vanilla moussaline buttercream and decorated in fondant. The yarn skeins were made of rice crispy treats frosted in vannilla moussaline buttercream and decorated in fondant. The needles were the only inedible piece to this cake, and were made out of sharpened painted dowels with gumpaste toppers.
If you’re a knitter & ever find yourself in Hoboken – you should definitely check out Patricia’s shop! I spent about an hour browsing through her vast selection of yarn and left with two giant bags full of yarn for 2 scarves & a winter blanket. Patricia was also kind enough to give me a swift [which I totally love 😀 ] as a thank you!
Here are some additional detail shots of the cake …
