We are really busy getting ready for summer stuff coming up next week and I'm wrapping up a swap but that hasn't stopped me from continuing to crochet at every chance I get!


A couple more strawberries, no pattern

A slice of cheese I made previously curled up and reminded me of a canoli so I made another in tan. When I stitched in the cream it ruined all the curvy edges so they are only tucked into the canoli and can be removed to put on other food. My daughter's had the bright idea that she can use the canoli shell for a veggie wrap with all those lovely vegetables I made her previously. Clever monkey!

I sort of followed the cupcake wrapper pattern here:

And Twinkie Chan's frosting "recipe" here:

(pretty long video, I skipped to the part I wanted).

The frosting didn't look right on the cupcake I made so I tried another frilly sort of topping with a cherry and saved this one for a pancake.


For an ice cream cone I looked over this pattern here but didn't follow it exactly:

I love these!  I especially like the twirl in the pancake frosting!

Clever of you to adapt your own pattern to make these your own!

Thanks guys Smiley. The swirly frosting was a bit of a pain. It's worked in rows of single crochet, the stitch that takes the longest, ugh. You increase on one side and decrease on the other at the end and start of each row so you end up with a parallelogram, worked in back loop only for the ridges. It wasn't difficult, just time consuming.

Hey, thanks! I've been making slices of pie lately and will have some to post soon. Finishing a project is sometimes my greatest challenge, lol.
