Cake Artist Creates Stunning Cake Designs That Look Cross Stitched

Maybe an unpopular opinion over here, but I don't think cross stitching is as appreciated as it deserves to be. It's more often than not associated with things grandmas do, and I personally think that's what makes it ultra special. Like yes, I do enjoy stitching some cheesy quote and scenic design into Aida cloth while listening to the TV—what's it to ya?!

If you're a cross stitching lover like me, then you'll especially enjoy these cross stitch-designed cakes, and if you're not a cross stitching fiend yet, you're certainly about to be.

You've seen embroidered cakes, but have you seen cross stitched cakes?

This design comes from Instagrammer @oksanity.

She somehow transfers common cross stitch and tapestry designs onto cakes with her magic wand, aka icing piping bag.

From far away, you would never guess that this is completely edible and not a fabric recreation of a cake.

Just watch part of the painstakingly patient process below.

She uses a special SugarVeil grid mold to achieve the Aida cloth fabric, and then grid by grid fills in each hole with a tiny dot of icing to get that pixelated look.

She also uses this design on a number of other pastries.

We're definitely gobbling this design technique up with our eyes, that's for sure!
