She Knit a Cake You Can Eat and You Can Too – YUM!

She Knit a Cake You Can Eat and You Can Too – YUM!

I really love this baked cake by Dorothy of Stonehouse Bakery (previously known as Frances Bakes)! It looks amazing and you know what? You could totally make this cake!

She Knit a Cake You Can Eat and You Can Too - YUM!

Last year I shared a great tutorial by Cakes For Show that revealed just how you can achieve the knit-look using fondant and an sugarcraft extruder tool (it’s always about the right tools!). The technique Frances uses is a little different — it looks like she weaves the strands of fondant instead of simply twisting them — but the look and feel is very similar and you can always experiment to find your own knitted cake style. Send me pics and I’ll share them here on KnitHacker!
