The Berry Basket Cake is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This makes a wonderful presentation! I brought it to a family gathering 2 weekends ago and it was a big hit. I incorporated this cake along with Nancy Siler's BCD cake of Show 706. I used Nancy's recipes for cake & filling but made is square as in the Berry Basket Cake. I filled with strawberries, a few blueberries and made a few white fondant daisies. I rated this a somewhat difficult as I don't have a straight hand & I'm a perfectionist. But was very pleased with end result!I've taken all the Wilton courses, and have just found BCD on my public TV. Nancy's has gotten me into trying new ideas again - - my family & people at work are loving it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The basket weave cake looks so nice when it's done. Everyone at the party commented on how much it looked like an actual basket weave on a basket. Also, it's a great cake to bring along this summer with the fresh fruit on top. Great for a Memorial Day or 4th of July celebration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for easter, and everyone raved over it. First they could not believe that I had made it, and them the combo of the berries, cake and icing was auewsome. I used a butter yellow cake mix, the wilton standarized whip cream icing and the combo of berries was strawberry, blackberry, blueberry. It tasted soooo good. I would make this cake again in a heart beat. I might but a varity of flowers on the cake instead of berries. The cost of the cake went up with the use of berries. I also might try the frozen berries and let them thaw out and dry them prior to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practice the basket weave prior if you have not done it. Loved the cake and the look of it. My client was over the moon with their cake for a summer combined birthday party.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my daughters birthday and everyone LOVED it! I did make one small change to the cake - since she doesnt like a lot of fruit - I added diced up Reece's cups to the top as well and it turned out fabulous! I also tried the revers shell border on top and it looked great with the rest of the design! I will definitely make this cake again!
