My little niece, Ana Sophia, is turning one!
This scrumptious little birthday cake hat will be just perfect for her, don’t you think?
Inside the candle is a bent straw that will help the candle stay upright:
Here it is ‘unfrosted’:
And with yummy loops of pink icing:
Now, this hat is running a little larger than it should, only because I used a worsted instead of the DK the pattern calls for – I am trying to use up some of my stash, especially my overflow of white Berroco Comfort. I figure she can just take the candle off of the top and use it as a girly winter hat – she’ll need it for those cold Michigan winters!
