This is where you can add some french knots or beads to give your cupcake an original, unique look.

Round 2: 2 SC in ea SC around (12 single crochet total)

Round 3: 1 SC in ea SC around (12 single crochet total)

Round 4: *1 SC DEC through the next 2 stitches, complete 6 times total from *, (6 single crochet decrease total)
Add some stuffing to the cherry. Secure the last stitch and sew the top shut. This is where you can sew the cherry to the frosting. Secure, knot and hide your tail.

Sewing Frosting to CupCake Side: Stuff your cupcake with polyester fiberfill. You can add some potpourri, rocks or sand for added stability and weight. I added some liquid potpourri to my fiberfill. Once you have completed stuffing your cupcake, align the side and frosting however you want it to look. Sew the pieces together. Secure, knot and hide your tail.

  3. I am so happy that you are selling videos for download. I really hope you are successful with this because you deserve to be compensated for your work. Have you ever thought about making a video with all the fundamentals of crocheting, maybe like 1 hour and selling it for like $5 or $10. You should make it so that you can only see a sample and you have to pay to see the whole thing. That would be great! You could make it like one of those instructional videos or fitness videos.

  4. ON the second row of the bottom it says to do 24 hdc in the loop. It is obvious on the video that you mean to do 2 dc in each hdc of the previous row.

    I left the tail in the cherry so it kinda looks like the stem

    Thank you so much for doing this :)
