Hi,
Can anyone tell me how to get this look on the horn of plenty? Should I use a basket weave? or some version of it? Is royal icing best to use? (Can you freeze it once it has royal icing on it?)

Looks like a lot of work, but I would think to get that look, royal icing with small piping tip (sorry not sure what #). Dont know about the freezing though...

I would use basket weave with a rope border at the mouth....Not sure about freezing royal icing though, never tried that. Looks like a fun project...have fun with it, and don't forget to post the pics when you're done.

No, you cannot freeze RI.

Thanks for the advice! I've never done the rope work - are you aware of any tutorials?
