The wild rose is a pretty year-round flower piped about the size of the head of Flower Nail 7. For a more cupped shape, increase the angle you hold the tip.

A variety of leaves will help give your cakes a more realistic garden feel. Add piping gel to your icing to help keep your leaves from breaking.

This technique turns any treat into beautiful baskets. Perfect for Easter, Mother's Day, bridal or any Spring and summertime theme.

Springtime Baskets Mini Cakes is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I did this cake for a family anniversary. I made a 10" 2 layer cake of chocolate, with ganache between layers, and iced it in a white basket weave. I then dusted it with gold dust. I made fondant roses, stephonitus, ivy, and lilly-of-the-valley gum paste flowers, along with leaves to fill the basket. I made 50 mini cakes, with forget-me-knots and greenery for the family and friends to take home from the celebration.
