I took this idea from Debbie Brown's 50 Easy Party Cakes. I now wish I had taken the time to make the yarn out of mmf but the effect is still there:) This is a surprise cake for my friend. Her husband and herself come home from their honeymoon tomorrow and I know she's been missing her kitty while she's gone! She loves cats!!

My husband's grandmother is an avid crocheter and knitter.  All year long, she makes scarfs for the people in the homeless shelters to have in the winter.  So, this year for her birthday it seemed like nothing was more appropriate than a cake of "yarn."

A Debbie Brown design.  Peanutbutter cake with peanutbutter buttercream.  My grandmother's favorite for her 81st birthday.  Thanks everyone for your help with the pb cake recipes.  I used the doctored mix pb cake.

I chickened out and used BC instead of MMF...oh well, I still think it turned out cute.  My daughter absolutely loved it.

Cat Yarn, Dogs Bone Cake
My version of Debbie Browns cat and dog cakes. Animals based on birthday girls own three pets. Animals and trimmings are molded pettinice and the cake is 10" butter cake with raspberry filling with yellow BC.  Since this is my eleventh cake, your critique is very appreciated.

I got this idea from a cake I saw on CC. Cake was made in a glass loaf pan. I just printed the label on my computer and then taped it onto wax paper. It worked great. That cat didn't turn out very good but my SIL loved the cake anyways.

Afghan is made of fondant then painted with icing colors.  The ball of yarn is a ball cake with buttercream swirled around it.

A Debbie Brown inspired design, Wilton ball pan covered in fondant strips to look like a ball of yarn, cat is modling paste, he wanted more servings than just the ball so we added a 10in round cake shaped to look like a country rug. I was very happy at how the board came out, I had to take a pic of it without the cake on it, It is covered in fondant and make to look like a hard wood floor complet with nail heads.  Pretty happy with this one.

Here is my version of the cat playing in yarn.  I was inspired by several people on this site with this cake which is actually a Debbie Brown Cake.  It was nice to see different views of the cake from several people.  It was a hit at the party.  Yellow pound cake filled with fresh strawberries and vanilla BC.  Cat is fondant. TFL!

This is a cake made for my local knitting group, the Knitt-witts :)  We meet every other Monday, and somebody always makes snacks, this week I volunteered.  Our main knitting guru is Susan 'B'  hence the little bumble bee.   Chocolate cake with custard filling.  I still need a lot of work on my writing.

This is a 62 count cupcake cake for my Oma's birthday.  It has all the things that reminded us of her.  Her yarn that she makes all of us slippers with, her cat (at least it was SUPPOSED to be a cat!), her german vanilla crecent cookies and the peppermints she always had in her purse.  The cupcakes were milk chocolate, vanilla and butterscotch.  Only 12 left after the party!

This is a cake I did for a little girl's birthday. Her mom requested a sleeping white furry kitten with a ball of blue yarn.

Just a practice cake. From Debbie Browns 50 easy party cakes. 
Yarn took a long time, but went faster after I remembered I had bought a playdough fun factory. First time ever covering a cake with fondant, and first 3-D cake like this.  I used 2 small pyrex bowls to bake leftover batter from a birthday cake. I had to round it out, but it worked very well. 
My daughter came and took it to share with her Goddaughters.

I did this cake for my 2 year old daughter's birthday.  Based (obviously) on a Debbie Brown design.  Chocolate chip cake with BC & MMF yarn/cat.  I had more fun making this cake than any other one I've done so far.

I made this for my MIL's birthday. She knits and tried to teach me (with little success). The only thing I would change is that I would add some BC to the knitting needles (skewers) to add to the effect.

Based on Debbie Brown's cake in  Easy Party Cakes.  I have GOT to find a better way to do those strings.  Anyway...bottom is strawberry cake iced in buttercream, made to look like a ragwool rug.  Yarn is chocolate from sports ball pan, covered in fondant.  Kitten is candy clay.  Now I have to transport the thing.....

I made this knitting cake for my grandmother.  It is a chocolate cake with peanut butter cup filling and buttercream frosting.  I used tip 3 for the yarn and basketweave for the basket.

From the '94 Wilton Yearbook...I waited 10 years to have my own baby girl turning 1 to make this cake!  First time to use tip #233 for fun!  Made from the teddy bear pan.

For my sister's bday, I made her a cake representing one of her hobbies, knitting.
This ball of yarn might not make a good sweater, but its mighty tasty.
I do not have a lot of experience with fondant, but I hope to someday remake this either by piping the yarn strands or taking more time to roll the fondant.

I made this cake for a friends little girl.  I believe that this was originally a Debbie Brown creation.  I used the wonder mold pan for the ball, and covered it with MMF.  What a LONG process.  I might try piping buttercream next time!

Ball cake covered in BC and fondant.  It took a long time to roll each individual yarn thread, but still fun.  The kittens and dog are made to look like my sister's pets -- it was for her birthday.

The ball of yarn is cake covered with gum paste.  I used my pasta machine to make the strands, that's why they are flat and not round.  It was placed on a round cake.

This is another twist on a Debbie Brown cake.  BC wool (did it with MMF last time - took forever!), MMF kitty and butterflies.  Cake is vanilla with lemon pudding filling and lemon BC.  Used Wilton Food Writers on butterflies and cat's eyes.

Made this for a friends knitting group.  Wanted to have more balls of yarn and put knitting needles in it too, but ran out of time (was a last minute cake)  This is buttercream/chocolate buttercream on a chocolate cake.

This is  a cake that me, my Mom, AND my husband took part in making! LOL
This was such a fun cake to do!  The cake was Butter Pecan and the frosting was Vanilla Almond.  The yarn and kittens were all made from fondant. This cake was for my Grandma who is a Cat Lover!

This is my attempt at one of Debbie Brown's cakes. I used the Wilton sportsball pan. Yellow with buttercream and mmf. Instead of rolling each string by hand and fussing over them not being uniform, I actually used my two year old son's playdough extruder tube! Thanks in advance for your comments as I am new to cake decorating/artistry and appreciate feedback. I would love to have some insight on what to charge/what the cake is worth.

I made this for my husband’s grandmother’s 84th birthday party.  She loves kittens, the color purple, & knitting (she actually taught me to knit).  The yarn is yellow cake covered in fondant and sheet cake is marble cake with vanilla store-bought frosting,fondant & buttercream accents.  The vanilla frosting “wrinkled” because somebody picked the cake up the wrong way when I asked them not to move it, but another person said it looked like a blanket, so it worked out ok after all!

Design by Debbie Brown.  The birthday girl wanted orange yarn and the cat to be black and white to match her own cat.  Easy cake to make, but time consuming.

This was for a sweet lady who wanted her cat on her cake.  I did the best I could, but mine looks a little chubby to me!  Thanks for looking!

I used one Wilton Fanci Fill cake pan for the top layer of this cake along with an 8" layer for the bottom to create the effect of a basket.  It is a spice cake with white chocolate buttercream center, and light chocolate buttercream basketweave.  All accessories are fondant.  The needles are fondant covered bamboo skewers dusted in silver.  The woman this basket represents runs marathons (her number represented), interprets for the deaf, loves dogs and -of course- knits like a fiend!

I made this cake for my sisters birthday! She looooves cats so it had to be a cat-cake!

Used the ball pan, trimmed flat on the bottom. Covered in BC strings. I wanted it done in MMF, but I couldn't get all the strings to look the same, so went with the bc, doesn't look much better. Kittens and the toy ball of yarn are all from MMF.
