Basket-weave Cake with Spring Flowers
This was the final cake in the Wilton Course 2 class. We worked on making flowers of Royal icing each week and then on the last class we learned the basket weave technique and embellished the cake with the flowers.
Royal Icing dries rock hard, lasts an indefinite amount of time, and you can do many different flowers with it. These flowers are great when you want to add a little something extra to an otherwise simple cake. They really dress up and add a bit of whimsy to whatever cake you put them on.
