Well, today's Sweets all have elements that look like needlework, or knitting, or papercraft, etc - but they're all completely edible. Very cool. Promise.

So now I know: Next time, try it with icing.
Oh, and speaking of cross stitch, check THIS out:
I'm not sure which craft this next one would be, exactly, but I love how it looks like a heavy fabric wrapped loosely around the cake:
For you quilters out there:
Patchwork quilting, that is. It looks so soft, like the whole cake is really a huggable plush!
Pretty, right? Ah, but wait until you see a close up of that christening gown:
Ever try quilling? I did (once), and the results can be so pretty; delicate and intricate. You basically takes tiny strips of paper and wind and twist them into shapes. One of the best quilling artists I've ever seen is Yulia Brodskaya - just look how gorgeous:
So now that you know what it is, can you spot the quilling on this cake?
Sweet Assignment: Next week I'll be featuring Fashion Sweets: gorgeous dresses, fabrics, accessories, or anything couture-inspired. Have one to nominate? Then send it to me at Sunday Sweets [at] Cake Wrecks [dot] com!
