Hey there, Cupcake!

I was so excited when I saw Alycia's choices for the February crochet-a-long over at her blog, The Curious Pug. All the patterns were so sweet and perfect for Valentine's Day. Since I normally crochet practical things like hats and scarves, this was a chance for me to make something just for fun.

The pattern used was the Bake Me A Cake pattern from BitterSweet. It turned out so cute that I couldn't help but dress it up in a cupcake wrapper (I had some left over from this project). I also put a little candle on it to celebrate (although I won't dare to light it)!

This certainly is one sweet little cupcake, figuratively speaking that is. And, it is truly too pretty to eat, which is just fine with me, because I'm not a big cake eater anyway.

So, do you ever make things just for fun with no real purpose in mind?
