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.

Make a simple, versatile leaf to add realistic details to flowers. Leaf tips can also be used to make simple flowers, such as sunflowers.

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.

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.
