I've made it. It's quick and simple. I used a cream, light tan colour for the cake and used different colours for the icing. (I did try and upload a photo but I don't think it's working, will try again later).

What a cute stitch! A little late on the reply, but for anyone curious, a multiple of 6 + 3 for the starting chain works just fine. C: However, a multiple of 1 will require you to skip a lot of ** repeats to work correctly. Ch 9 is only good if you're looking for narrow, single cupcake rows, so I'd recommend any multiple greater than 1.

well I have made it and it's really cute -- goes to show -you just have to keep on trying - once the pattern is established it's a piece of ""cupcake""--

I crochet everyday - but something in this pattern is getting me -I am on my second row for the third time -I like it and keep trying but it could be a little clearer -- for me anyway --
