Easter Basket

This is a cake you can find at Wilton's website. The cake is basic vanilla with a cream filling. The handle was made with gum paste, as well as the bow. The cake is covered in white fondant. The "eggs" on top are sugar cookies covered with butter cream which I dyed in several colors and I also used butter cream to attach a toothpick to the back of each cookie. The cake called for a pink three-wave swag thingy but I decided to go for one. My skills are not up there yet. The leaves and eggs around the cake were made of fondant a couple of days before that I let dry so they could get hard. This was my first time working with gum paste, and it was a learning experience.

Everybody loved the cake and at the end of the party there was nothing left! :)
