When it comes to amigurumi, it's hard to look past aphid777. Evelyn is an artist living in the US who specialises in crocheted works and is best known for her fan art plushies. She seemingly makes a point of pushing the envelope, constantly trying new and difficult techniques to improve her art form to wondrous results. Aside from being a skilled artist, Evelyn is also a generous one: she routinely publishes the patterns she uses to craft her amigurumi enabling other crafters to try their hand at them, too.

Here's a sample of her awesome amigurami

White Christmas Tree Cake by cakecrumbs
White Christmas Tree Cake
This is a revisit of one of the first cakes I made, this Christmas tree cake: cakecrumbs.me/2011/12/28/white…  Let's take a second to appreciate how shit that fondant work is. Just for anyone who thinks I've always been good at this, cause decidedly not.

Lately I've had a lot of people who somehow stumbled upon it and wanted to know how it was done, so I threw together this quick little one to demonstrate the way I carved this shape.

The cake features two of my favourite mudcake recipes. It's all smothered in chocolate ganache, then covered in fondant. Step by step and recipes are over here: cakecrumbs.me/2014/12/17/white…

My name's Rhiannon. I'm a 25-year-old Aussie chick who is crazy about animals. I have a Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in Zoology and History & Philosophy of Science and have recently finished my Master of Science (Zoology). Next year I'll begin a PhD in Zoology. Ever since I was a toddler I knew I would dedicate my life to wildlife conservation, and through science I have found the tools I need to make a difference.


In my spare time, I love to create. I've always been drawn to artistic hobbies of every shape and colour, and each one of them consumes me for a time. As such, I'm a total jack of all trades, master of none. I spread myself too thin to be able to ever become amazing at any one of them, but I'm having so much fun drinking it all in.


The thing I suppose I'm known for the most is baking. I started dabbling in cake decorating three years ago and fell in love. My partner convinced me to start posting photos online and I began to find that people wanted to see more. After numerous requests for a food blog, Cakecrumbs was finally born. I've no idea where this crazy food journey will end, but the ride is amazing.

Brookette and myself are your shiny Artisan Craft Community Volunteers. This means, among other things, we're responsible for bringing the work of skilled artisans to the attention of the wider community through Daily Deviations.

If you see a craft you think deserves to be seen by the whole community, here's how you can suggest it to me for a daily deviation!


  • Send me a note with the subject "DD Suggestion": show me a thumbnail [:thumb######:] for the art you wish to suggest and tell me why you think it deserves to be featured as a DD.
  • Only send one suggestion per note.
  • Tell me if you want to be an anonymous suggester.
  • Only send your suggestion to one Community Volunteer.
Check out my full DD Guidelines for more information. If you'd like to suggest a DD to maytel, you'll find her guidelines here.
