Stuffing For Brains

In the library I work at, we have a lot of crochet books, but not a lot with amigurumi patterns in them (well, we do now, but we didn't when I started making them). One book we have in the kid's section is called Kid's Crochet, by Kelli Ronci, with patterns for pillows, scarves and things -- but also a couple dolls and cute little cupcakes! The cupcake pattern was actually intended to be a pincushion, but I just made them for decoration. The pattern had little bead sprinkles and maybe a cherry on top, but I just put eyes on and left it at that!

The purple one was for my mom and the green one was for one of my friends.
I was experimenting with textures when I made these guys. The green one's frosting was in my, at this point, standard texture. I made the purple one second, and decided to turn it inside out to use this neat swirly pattern that looked very frosting-like look to them. Every other cupcake after that was made with the swirly frosting texture.

The other thing I really like about these little guys was the yarn used for the cupcake portion of them. The moment I saw it in the store, I was like, "Oh man! This is totally like funfetti cake mix!" I had to buy it and make a cupcake out of it. So I did. ^_^
