Basket of Flowers Cake
|To make the basket of flowers cake I took two small oblong cake pans. Baked a fresh strawberry cake, glazed with a fresh strawberry glaze. I then made my butter cream icing in a medium consistency, and laid out my basket weave pattern over my iced cake. I used a tip #47 for the entire cake.
Two weeks prior to baking the cake, I made the handle and the basket lids with royal icing letting it harden. I used a tip # 47 for the basket weave pattern on the lids, and a tip#104 for the ruffle around the basket lid edge. I cut dowel rods to the length that I wanted my basket lids to open and inserted in the cake to hold the basket lids open.
I used a tip #21 to do rope borders top and bottom.
I made butter cream roses and sweet peas and filled the basket, allowing them to cascade out.
The cake was a big hit...everyone marveled at the fact it was all edible...with the exception of the 2 dowel rods...LOL!
