Rated 4 out of 5 by RaesCakes from I didnt excatly make the same cake. I made an easter basket, but what I did was bake a cake in a loaf pan, when it was cooled I scooped out the center on the top, frosted it, covered it with fondant then did a weave with the fondant. I messed up on it this one but it was like 12 am, and my first lol but I remember what to do for next time. Once it was covered I filled the top hole with edible easter grass and jelly beans. Took some floral wire, covered it with fondant and stuck it in as a handle and put bows on the bottom. It was cute but I did mess up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by robles1725 from i made this cake for a springtime wedding shower it was beauiful i had a little trouble stacking but other then that it was wonderful. i layed the leaves over a rolling pin so they would set curved i made them 2 days before it was due. i also made the eggs out of cookies and made little wedding bells on the cookies with royal icing. and i used colorflow to make the names of the bride and groom and placed it on the lip of the bottom layer. the dots were replaced with wedding bells and hearts all in white. this cake was a joy to make i just wish i had remembered to take a picture. i also made a cake like this for summer instead of "eggs" i made watermelon shaped and flip flop shapes. thank you so much for this idea that led to other ideas

Rated 5 out of 5 by SunnyMac from I love the top of the cake, but I expected it to use a basket weave buttercream. I used fondant for the top stuff, but I love buttercream's flavor better than the fondant so I used it for the sides. It also looks good if you use different colors for one direction of the weave. I did it using the colors of the eggs for the up and down weave.

Rated 4 out of 5 by momak from i made this as an easter cake, it was nice because a lot of it can be prepared ahead of time. and everyone liked the option of cake or cookie, i did substitute the wilton butterfly cookie cutters instead of the eggs to give it a spring look also. enjoy
