Bobble Stitch (bo):
If you are unfamiliar with the bobble stitch, here is how you make it:
Yarn over, insert hook into stitch and pull up a loop.
Yarn over again and pull through two loops, leaving 2 loops on your hook.
Continue these steps until you have 5 loops on your hook.
Yarn over and pull through all 5 loops. Chain 1 to finish stitch.
R1: 8 sc in a magic ring
R2: 8 inc (16)
R3: (1 sc, inc) x 8 (24)
R4: 24 sc in the back loop only
R5: (3 sc, inc) x 6 (30)
R6-7 (2 rounds): 30 sc
R8: (4 sc, inc) x 6 (36)
R9: 36 sc
Switch to frosting colour:
R10: In the front loop only, (1 bo, sc) x 18 (36)
R11: In the back loops of the previous round, 36 sc
It is easier to see the back loops if you push the bobble stitches of the previous round down with your thumb as you work.
There should be two “rounds” of stitches to work through (see picture).
R12: Work 36 sc around, working through both stitches (see picture).
Insert safety eyes between rounds 7 & 8, about 4 visible stitches apart.
R13: (4 sc, dec) x 6 (30)
R14: (3 sc, dec) x 6 (24)
R15: 24 sc
Start stuffing the cupcake. Do not overstuff the bottom, or else it will not sit flat.

R17: (1 sc, dec) x 6 (12)

R1: 5 sc in a magic ring
R2: 5 inc (10)
R3-4 (2 rounds): 10 sc
