Easter Basket Cake
I made this from using just the base of my
Wilton's giant cupcake pan. I am by no means a
cake decorator and my purpose for sharing my
cakes is to show you that don't have to be.
After the base baked and cooled I I sliced off the top
to make it level and then scooped out about
1/4"- 1/2" of cake evenly around the inside.
I was going to try my hand at frosting it by using
a basket weaving design but was afraid I'd mess
it up so instead I came across a site that showed
how to make it look like basket weaving using
a fork . They used chocolate ganache where as
I just used regular frosting. I know its not as neat
as the regular basket weave design I think it works
just fine. I put a thin layer of frosting inside the
top and around the opening of the cake edge
then used a large a large star decorating tip
around the top and bottom of the cake.
Next I looked up how to color coconut to
make the grass for my easter basket cake.
I used two different colors of green...regular food
coloring green and McCormick's Neon Green Food
Coloring. I liked the variety of greens I got bydoing this. I then sprinkled my "grass" into the
center of the cake.
Next I added some of the Easter Egg Cake Pops
I made the day before. I also added some scrapbook
paper flowers I stuck together with frosting and added
pink candies for the center.
