Rated 5 out of 5 by sltahoemiss from The real skill of making a basketweave cake is not starting the weave; it is ending the weave. This instructional page would have more helpful if it had shown how the decorator ended the weave and how the decorator achieved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yesica831 from I used this technique as my final cake in Wilton's Flowers and Cake design decorating course. At first I was a little intimidated but my teacher showed me how. And once I got started it was pretty easy to do. I loved how my cake turned out. I was impressed by my skills! LOL!! I think this type of decoration is perfect to celebrate Easter. You can make it look like an Easter basket by piping green grass on top and add colorful eggs on top. Or add some simple flowers like I did to mine. And also to give as a gift basket for any occasion and fill the top with edible accents to it. If you would like to see a picture of my cake you can see it on my Facebook page by following this link https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2030951739181&set=a.1951194985312.2115589.1405751034&type=3&theater

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jrbrook76 from It's wonderful when something that looks super impressive is super easy too. Just remember that this is a technique that will be WAY easier if you LEVEL your cake so that it's perfectly shaped. I've always gotten oohs and aahs from this technique...
