Knitted Cupcakes for Pink Friday

On Friday 28th February Gina over at Fan my Flame is going to have a Pink Friday Party in aid of  Breast Cancer and Cancer Research.
The aim is to knit and make as many cakes as possible and send them to her before 28th. My first offering is above.
This is a very simple pattern which I found on the Internet a couple of years ago.  The link and pattern is in my side bar or tutorial links at the top.  I am in the process of moving some things around.
I have stitched them together and added some stuffing inside to give it a bit of body.
A felt base helps to keep the stuffing inside and make the cake stand upright.
If you would like to help pop over to her blog, she has a pattern that she is willing to email you if you leave a comment on her blog expressing your interest.  The post you need to read I think is 12th September but I can not obtain the link for that particular post today for some reason.
These two cupcakes were already knitted but not finished off so Gina;s idea of raising some money prompted me into completing them.
We often organise something at work for Breast Cancer research by wearing pink on a given day, this is another way of taking part.
This would also be a good way of using up scraps of wool left over from other projects.  A spot of easy knitting in the evenings is just what I need at the moment.
Best wishes all.

What a lovely cupcake! I'm sure your efforts will be appreciated. Thanks for the link, too, Andrea. We're traveling right now, but perhaps I can add a cupcake to the cause once we return home.
