Rated 5 out of 5 by Iivette Grubb from Decorating this cake was relatively easy, considering that I am no pro. I used fondant for the sky. I also used fondant to make the chicks face, the basket handle and the eggs( I had no jelly beans). I took it to work and may coworkers loved it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by expatcindy from This is a really cute cake. The 3 chicks at the edge of the basket are easier than the flying chick, so do them first so you are practiced in piping the chick.Decide from the beginning if you are going to do the basket weave straight or curve it to follow how a real basket would be (curve the lines on either side in a little like the lines on a pumpkin). I think either way is valid, just decide from the beginning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by irish4200 from I have made this cake form as a whole egg and decorated it to look like a chocolate egg with flowers on it. I have used one half of the pan to make a "NEMO" cake and used real shells for the fins and tail. My grandchild loved it.
