A wonderful technique for finishing your piped baskets with pretty edging and handles. Excellent too for western or nautical theme cakes. You can make a great looking rope with round or star tips.

This technique turns any treat into beautiful baskets. Perfect for Easter, Mother's Day, bridal or any Spring and summertime theme. This technique creates a two-dimensional woven-look design. Use for baskets, fences, or to completely cover the side of a cake.

The bead shape makes impressive borders outlines and accents on letters and designs; also a cute trim on clothing and gingerbread houses. The basis for making piped hearts and figure piping.

The grass tip creates the most celebrated, easily accomplished decorations! The serrated edges of the grass tip makes ridges in the icing as you squeeze it out. Our step-by-step video shows you how!

Characters or designs are often outlined first, then piped in with stars or zigzags. Outlines can also be used for facial features.

Peeker Cottontails Cake is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this this year for Easter. It was easy. I made bunny, tulip and butterfly cookies and I saved a few for the cake. I did everything as asked, but on the sides of my cake, I took the cookie cutters for the butterfly and pushed it slightly into the buttercream. Then I decorated my butterflies. It was beautiful. You can go as colorful as you want. I also added a few small fondant "stars" that I brushed w/pearl dust. Of course I made a carrot cake w/cream cheese buttercream. It was great and so very cute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely loved making this cake! I made sugar cookie bunnies and covered them in fondant instead. Looked so great! I'm also a beginner, and people were amazed by this cake! I will be making this cake again this Easter! Thanks Wilton :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love finding new ways to use the basketweave technique! This cake is so cute, and my only change was to add a basketweave pattern around the edge of the cake too. Using cookies for the bunnies is a great idea, too! Thanks Wilton!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for Easter and it was a hit. Was very easy to make. I used a normal round cookie though but it was still cute. I made it with carrot cake mix and cream cheese frosting. Yummy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake for Easter last year - but swapped out the piped grass for edible candy grass and added some bright jelly beans. Everyone thought it was adorable!
