What I am envisioning for an Easter basket from a half of a sports ball pan is the cake, flat side up, on a cake board (level off a part of the bottom of the cake so it can sit and not roll around). Then starting from a few inches of the center of the cake (either side), looking at the cake from the side, cut straight down a few inches, and then straight across; repeat on the other side. When you look at the cake from the side it should look like a basket with a handle. You can even scoop out some of the cake from the "inside" of the basket to hold your eggs, etc. You can use the basketweave technique with light brown icing (either food coloring or just a little bit of cocoa powder). I hope this is clear and not confusing...very difficult to put into words without being able to illustrate. Hope this helps!
