Easter Basket Cakes

Easter Basket Cakes on Cake Central

I made 2 identical easter basket cakes. I used 3 10 inch cakes stacked to form the basket. I then cut out some of the top of the cake to make room for the easter eggs. I used buttercream from the wilton website to ice the cake, and then let it cool. Once my cake was cooled, I tinted the buttercream brown, and used the basketweave tip all around the cake to make it look like a basket. Then I used the star tip to make the border around the top of the cake. I also tinted the buttercream green, and used the grass tip along the bottom of the cake, and on the top of the cake. I made easter aggs out of fondant, and then painted them with food coloring and vodka, then let them dry. I also used the daisy cutout to make small flowers to go on the basket of the cake. I used the leaf tip to make leaves on the side of the cake, and then attached the flowers. I had to use the handle of an actual easter basket, because the one I made was too heavy, and it would have destroyed the cake. I painted it brown, and then piped leaves, and flowers on the top.
