Here I gonna share with you an earlier design in late 2016, which is a birthday cake gift box.
This is my first post in 2017 and, this is going to be my first bilingual entry too!!
Noticing the high demand and interest from worldwide, I realised that writing in Chinese cannot bring benefits to the crocheters in the world but disappointment (as they were eager to know more about my work but no way to).
Therefore, I decided to write in both Chinese and English. I hope that can keep my original intention to promote this DIY to the locals, at the same time share the work and ideas with all the amigurumi fellows.
This is designed for my dearest’s birthday. For some reasons, it’s not possible for me to present a real birthday cake on his birthday. So, it’s a turnaround for the celebration 🙂
You can search out and find many different kinds of cake patterns. However, none of them is like what I wanted. Combine and design your own pattern is the way out! It’s never too difficult, if you have enough time and patience to trial and error. Well, I would take it as enjoyment 🙂

I want to give a better use case than just an ordinary cake plush. Why not make it filled with some little gift instead of cotton filling? It’s a really surprising design for the receiver when he thought his present is just this handmade cake. Who knows there’s something more inside!
But it’s very challenging and time-consuming to make it a gift box. I have underestimated the effort to make both the cake base and the top cover firm enough to support and stand like a box.

– Prepare thick cardboard as well as fibre and sew them tight onto the piece.
– Use transparent threads for sewing to hide stitches.
Get a bakery box, put it inside and present the surprise 🙂
