What you need to know

Susie Johns’ cakes are cute, colourful and calorie-free!

We love a good novelty knit and these knitted cakes are exactly that! The cupcakes are pompoms while the Batternberg and Swiss roll are really simple knits. If you haven’t made a pompom since you were at school, read our Knitwise panel (overleaf) to remind you how to do it. Our cakes are reinforced with strong cardboard, but leave this out if you’re giving them to younger children. It’s Mother’s Day this month, so why not consider a gift with a difference?
