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.

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

Basket of Blooms Cake is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved the look of the basket weave. I didn't know how to do it so I tried and it turned out great. I used it as a centerpiece for Easter and everyone raved over it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used this concept to make a Mickey Mouse Club House cake for my nephew. i made the basket and carved it to look like a hot dog and moldede Mickey and Donald out of fondant on scewers (they came out looking JUST like the characters, no one knew they were edible at first) then I piped the "Hotdog Song" on the front of the hotdog bun. It was AWESOME!!! One of my favorie cakes!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made a cake similar in concept to this one for my daughters first birthday last year. I did not pipe the basket weave and used crushed Oreo as the dirt. I made the flowers double sided tulips by attaching the cookies to the sticks with candy melts (or RI I don't remember). Then I used a bit more and to stick two decorated cookies together back to back. I piped "grass" around the insertion spot on the cake to hide the holes.
