Pull-Apart Cupcake Cakes: Use Your Pattern Charts for Design Inspiration

Have you been noticing all the creative pull-apart cakes made with cupcakes lately? I love them.

StudioDIY made an adorable cactus cake (below) and did a great tutorial.

As I was perusing Pinterest for more pull-apart cakes and saving some favorites -- I was struck with this idea: pattern charts are the perfect thing for designing one.

Now, maybe I'm late to this idea...but I thought I'd share some knitting and cross-stitch charts that I think would be fun.

Clockwise from top left: 

  1. Pineapple from Jamie Robinson 
  2. Suzy Marie's Love Ewe Sew Much 
  3. "Dog Days" at Just Crafty Enough
  4. Friends and Foxes from BadSkirt
  5. Storm Trooper and other Star Wars charts from Sarah Bradberry

Wouldn't these make for some amazing cakes? I think my nephews would love me forever if I baked them some light-sabers. 

Of course, you would probably want to use mini-cupcakes for some of the more complicated designs, or zoom in on one area of a chart if you weren't looking to serve 100 people. But I think these are great inspiration. 

Find your pattern books and let's bake!

P.S. You can make your own chart with a free tool online like Stitch Fiddle; freehand it or upload your photos. 

If you do bake our own masterpiece -- please share! Tag me on Instagram with #globalbackyard. You will make my day.
