How do I decorate the side of a cake like a basket? (The pattern that kind of looks like a weave).
Wilton's website has instructions
Yep go to www.wilton.com and search basketweave, I think on their site it's under buttercream techniques or something like that. You may even find a YouTube video. It's easier than it looks. I like my frosting a bit stiffer for this in general. If the frosting is too soft, when you do one over the other they seem to run together a bit. You also have to make sure that the ridged side of the tip is always facing out
there are lots of differnt sites that show this. sugar craft dot com also does. and on youtube also. i think in toba garret's books , she shows it. i think in colette's books i have seen it. it is easy to do. hth
You use the basketweave tip and weave the icing as you pipe it.
