  1. hi my name is Sophia i’m 10 years old,I started to crochet 2 years ago I have a question, how big is the lemon cake? are they all the same size?

    1. Hi Sophia! I think it’s great you know how to crochet at 10 years old. You must be a very smart young lady πŸ™‚ The lemon cake is about 3″ wide by 3″ tall. The cakes all come out the same size! Let me know if you have any questions πŸ™‚

      1. thanks!

  2. hello! I’m struggling to know how to change the color from cream to the main color and it would be great if you explained more how to!

    1. Hi there Nithya! When working the icing we will have to change color with the last icing stitch. Usually when we change color we work the very last stitch, but yarn over with the new color when completiting the very last stitch. So this is what we will be doing for the last icing stitch!

      Make the 6 double crochets needed for the last stitch. You will have 6 loops on your hook since we haven’t completed the icing stitch yet. Now, yarn over with the main color. Pull through all 6 loops on your hook with the main color yarn. Now you have just completed a color change!

      I hope that was able to help πŸ™‚ Please let me know if I can help explain anything further!

  3. I’m making the lemon cake for my daughter Le friends birthday and it’s so great except I didn’t understand the written instructions for icing and had to look up a YouTube tutorial which makes them different but still good. Thanks!

I know your daughter’s friend will be so happy to get that gift from you πŸ™‚ Handmade gifts are so much more personal and you can really feel the love when you get a gift like that!

You made such a cute cake and thank you for sharing a picture πŸ₯° Your dog is adorable too, I looooove dogs so much. He/she looks like spoiled pup with that adorable sweater!
