My friend is an amazing cake maker, so for her 30th birthday I bought her a new cake tin and decided to crochet some of her specialities to fill it.
The whole project owes a huge debt to Pseudoscorpion who posted this pattern;http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=170387.0
All the cake slices are based on the starting triangle.
(As you can see, I decided to make irregular meringue, not sure if that was a good idea!)
I had to sew or crochet along all the edges to give the cakes edges reasonably straight sides, without that they were very squishy and shapeless.
