Can Instructions be Copyrighted?

That is the question taken up by David Brophy at the 1709 Blog in discussing whether instructions on how to create a plaid weave are subject to copyright protection. Also, this morning, I read an FB Post on bloggers getting sued for posting photographs of cakes – (Yes, we here at the Roundup love a nice cake) so is a photograph of a cake a “slavish copy” or does it have some artistic merit worth protection?
