I made a New Year Resolution not to buy any more magazines, however I could not resist the latest issue of Crafts Beautiful Magazine as it has so much in it. First of all it comes with cupcake patterned backing paper and also a little book all about cupcakes (baking and card making).

Inside the magazine are two free patterns for knitted cakes, with a down loadable pattern for doughnuts from their web site. I don't know why I want to knit a cake, but there you go, I just do. When they are finished I will donate them to the League Of Friends at the hospital.

Also on page 23 there is a recipe for a Banana Cheesecake, which looks delicious.

So, I think it was worth breaking my resolution for, don't you ?

P.S. A cupcake I knitted earlier.................

I love the cupcake you knitted. I may take a look for that magazine. I was planning on knitting a birthday cake for my god daughter... she has lots of tea sets & I think a cake will go well with them :)

How well I understand you! I always swear NOT to buy any more mags but I keep breaking the promise. They are so alluring in their stalls, I simply cannot leave them behind! But I try to reduce the number... The cupcake is gorgeous.
