Yum! This cheery little cupcake looks good enough to eat (but please don’t!) I used bright embroidery floss to give him sprinkles but I don’t even think I needed to - if you use pins with coloured heads they already look like real sprinkles! He’s super quick & easy to make and only uses a small amount of yarn - a perfect “stash buster” project!

Difficulty: Beginner Friendly - Suitable for those new to amigurumi

Must know how to work in the round, increase, and invisible decrease.
