After I joined the Being Creative group I realised that that meant I had to do something about it! The subject for April is dessert. Yum, this opened up lots of possibilities, most of which would probably have been eaten before they got to be photographed. So, bizarrely, I decided to make something inedible for dessert.
First of all I thought I’d make some strawberries. But as I have made them before I thought that was cheating a bit so I decided to add some cakes. I found these beautiful creations on Norma Lynn’s site but didn’t have all the colours I’d need so I settled for something that I could make with the wool I had. I haven’t crocheted for years so I can thank Julia Crossland for making me pick up my crochet hook again, I’m loving all the hearts, and flowers and bunting I’ve made since (that’s another post though).
There are masses of patterns for the cupcake I made, this is the pattern I used though.
Here then, in all its glory is my April dessert – ta da!
Or, if you prefer your dessert with a dainty tablecloth –
The strawberries I found on Martha Stewart’s site as pincushions, there is a template to download but I made my own leaves for the tops.
The plates are from a Royal Albert tea set called Lady Carlyle and the wine was a Chardonnay Colombard and didn’t last long once all the photos were taken! Lilac from the garden.
I’m looking forward to next month’s challenge now – home.
