Let them eat cake!

Yesterday afternoon I had the strong desire to eat cake. I didn’t have any cake in my house, so of course the next best thing was to look at photos of knit and crochet cakes on Ravelry. Yes, I realize this is not at all a normal train of thought, but I have a confession to make: my name is Mari and I am addicted to fiber.

This is the cake that started it all, and once I saw this cake I just kept searching!

This reminded me of the strawberry and whipped cream cakes that I would get for my birthday as a kid in Japan. Of course the one picture I could find of me and my sister with a birthday cake from my 7th birthday is not one of these cakes, but oh well! Strawberries were, and still are, my favorite fruit. Honestly it’s probably one of my favorite foods!



So there’s a super flashback photo of me and my little sister Emi. Looking at this photo it seems we were both very¬†excited about eating cake!

Now I’m dying to knit a cake! (Eating one sounds pretty good too.)

    Actually the INSIDE of the cake was the usual – sponge cake with whipped cream and strawberries. They just didn’t put berries on the outside and the outer layer of whipped cream was dyed pink – because pink was definitely Miss Mari’s favorite color!
