My friend who is an avid crocheter turned 30 in November and her husband threw her a surprise party and asked me to make the cake.

I had originally planned on a ball cake decorated to look like a ball of yarn, but then I came across a baby shower cake similar to the one I made, and changed my mind. 

In the original cake I believe they wrapped Styrofoam balls with yarn, but I just made small yarn balls and glued a coffee stirrer inside it. Then I used gum paste to make a crochet hook.

The cake itself was a boxed German chocolate mix. Between the layers I spread cool whip and sprinkled it with chocolate toffee bits. The frosting was marshmallow butter cream with almond flavoring instead of vanilla.

Sounds so yummy! I would've never thought to decorate a cake with yarn balls before, but this is super fun! I'd do this for my mom!
