Finishing
Place the cardboard linings you cut into bottom and top of cake, position them well, and glue them if necessary. Stuff bottom of cake with fiberfill, place the top of cake and tread the tail of yarn into the needle and sew around. I left the icing drops unsown so then can puff out more. And decorate as you like, I added a flower to mine and a trim.

Soluna, I was looking over the pattern, and noticed that in both the bottom and top of the cakes there are two Row 5. Which row do you do for each section? or do you do them both? Thanks for the pattern and the clarification.
