Cake Decorating 101 - An Easter Basket Cake

There are a few tips you will see in this video with Kelly Delaney of Cakes For Occasions that make the basket weave cake, above, not only possible but fairly easy. After putting a rough layer of frosting on the cake, use a No. 48 basket weave tip (available in craft stores) to put an even number of vertical lines up the side of the cake (Note: You need an even number so the weaves will mesh.), below. Then you will "cross the T" on every other vertical line until you work your way around and down the cake. The borders will be smaller on top and larger on the bottom. You can decorate any number of cakes, as well as this one, by watching some of the other Cake Decorating 101 videos at http://food.gloucestertimes.com.
