Note from Heather: I saw a cupcake hat on Etsy where the base was brown ribbing and the top was the frosted swirl of a cupcake. I found this hat pattern on Ravelry and wanted to try out the swirl pattern. It worked! I gave this hat to a 2 year old girl. It is made from Cascade 220 Superwash. I didn't care for the yarn - scratchy and it dried out my hands. I suggested to the mom that she wash it but it didn't bother her.
