This is my first try at the basketweave and the rope border. I LOVED doing the basketweave! I was disappointed that I was not able to mound the center of the flowers like I wanted but I discovered that the top of the cake would be too tall for the top of the cake taker if I increased the height of the flowers. I bought a larger cake taker and you can bet I'm going to try it again. I really enjoyed doing that design. So much fun!!
