With this hat, I used the same super bulky brown yarn for the bottom, but used a softer bulky, combined with a very thin sparkly yarn for the icing part.
The first "sparkly" hat came out too big, so I made a smaller one. Now my daughter and I can have matching hats. :-)
Here are some action shots.
I have another idea for a third type of cupcake hat in mind, but I'm not sure when I'll get to it. I have many other ideas in my mental queue of crafts!
