Soft Sculptures For the Hard Hearted

Taking the cake

Last month I became marginally obsessed with a slew of “reality” shows and documentaries based around the making of unique and interesting cakes. The entire month, shows like Cake Boss, Ace of Cakes, King of Pastries and other cake-centric programming dominated the living room TV. And while I badly wanted to make a crazy, fancy, artsy cake like the ones the master chefs were whipping up on the screen, I knew I could never in a million years make the cake I was thinking of.

OR COULD I?

The answer was yes. Yes I could. And it would be the best cake ever.

This triple-tiered lovely is biggest crocheted figure I’ve made so far… almost 2′ tall! Now, I know I’ll probably never have a bodacious stripper in a feather boa and pasties jump out of a cake for me in real life, but having this in the corner of the room is a nice replacement.

If she could just twirl those tassels a few times, the party would really get started. (See my personal tassel-twirling hero in action below.)
