It’s easy, fun and when you combine it with your favourite things (like cake!) then it just gets even better.
I’ve worked on A LOT of cake cross stitch patterns over the years. Etsy is an absolute treasure trove for them and they’re often available as an instant download.
Here are some of my favourites, which I’m sure you’ll love too… my sincerest apologies if you start really wanting cake after this though!
