What are you most proud of? It's my first attempt at a knitting cake, and it's probably one of the most realistic cakes I've ever made.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't rush- allow plenty of time to get it done. I made it a few days in advance and took lots of breaks so the quality of the work wouldn't suffer. Sometimes I get so excited to see a project finished, I work too fast, and that's when the big mistakes tend to happen.

How in the world did you do the balls of yarn? Really, I have to know. Its looks absolutely fantastic. If someone gave me this cake, I'd have to preserve it some how. No way would I cut into it!
