St. James’ Cake Amigurumi Pattern

As you know, I am from Galicia and as I have done on previous occasions as in the Galician Octopus Amigurumi Pattern, I want to show you a little bit of my land through the St James Cake Amigurumi Pattern.

I have designed a New collection of “delicious” kawaii-style amigurumis

Delicious Amigurumis: 18 patterns to crochet amigurumi food

And I thought I could take advantage of and show you one of the most representative desserts of my land:

St. James’ Cake (Tarta de Santiago)

Do you know it? It is a very simple recipe since it is made only with almonds, sugar and eggs, with a little bit of cinnamon and lemon zest.

It’s delicious! But what makes it unmistakable is the drawing of St. James’ cross on the surface made with a template on which we sprinkle icing sugar.

Here you have the St-James’ Cake Amigurumi Pattern that you can also turn into a funny keychain. I hope you like it!

Final Details

Sew the icing sugar part on the piece of cake. To give a cottony look, lightly brush the wool once it is sewn.

Sew the bottom, top and sides over the cross above this piece and once you have the complete Cross, sew it onto the cake. The piece of the cross that you have crocheted does not have a well-defined shape, but it will help you so that once sewn, you can embroider around it, outlining the edges. This is the trickiest part of the pattern. Do it carefully, taking the thread of the piece and sewing over it in short lengths.



Finally, sew the eyes under the sides of the cross and embroider with light beige yarn the mouth at the bottom, leaving a little beige to show between it and the white part.

Finished!
