Basketweave & Daisies

Basketweave and Daisies

March 2008

Happy Birthday Kat!

This birthday cake has a spring basketweave on the sides and is filled in with royal icing flowers and text piped on like vines in in a wandering garden.

Once the royal icing dries in shape and the leaves and details are added, these flowers really are quite cute!

The basketweave design is a classic Wilton skill. I think that my icing was a little bit dry, which gave it a great look similar to fraying straw that suited the theme well.

Cake Details

  • Cake: Double layer in butter-vanilla
  • Filling: Strawberry jam
  • Icing: Vanilla buttercream (sans butter- it started as a class project)
  • Decorations: Tinted buttercream, royal icing flowers
  • New toys used: Basketweave tip #47

Anybody hear an echo…?
