Additional Information

Step 1

Fit decorating bag with basketweave decorating tip 47 and fill 1/2 full or less with medium consistency icing.

Step 2
Step 2

Hold the decorating bag at a 45° angle at 6:00, with tip lightly touching the surface of the iced cake and the serrated side of the tip up. Squeeze, allowing icing to attach to surface, then continue squeezing out a vertical strip of icing from the top of the cake to the bottom. Stop squeezing; pull tip away.

Step 3
Step 3

With bag at a 45° angle at 3:00, squeeze out short horizontal stripes of icing over the vertical line starting at the top. Spacing between horizontal stripes should be the same as the width of the tip opening; the length for each stripe should be identical.

Step 4
Step 4

Squeeze next vertical line over ends of horizontal stripes. Start next set of horizontal stripes by burying the tip under the first (or previous) vertical line.

Step 5
Step 5

Repeat vertical lines then horizontal stripes, always piping a single vertical line, until you have covered the area with basketweave. Each new set of lines should fit between the previous set.

Hints:

Always pipe a single vertical line, then pipe short horizontal stripes.

Having the cake surface at eye level, on a turntable, makes this technique easier.

Try using different tips ? stars, rounds, serrated side of basketweave tip down ? or combining two different tips, to vary the woven basket effects.

If done on the side of a cake, ice the cake first.
