I made a basket cake for our Easter celebration in the church. I imagine this cake to look like a real basket so I decided to make the base color to be brown and since I like the pink color I put a little touch of pink color on it. I used the whipped cream that can easily be purchased here in Japan and use the Wilton food color on it. I used the basket weave piping  to  make  it  look   like basket .

I used long dessicated  coconut and put green color on it  to make it look like green grass. Then I put butterflies on each side to make it look like these butterflies are flying around that I purchased on the internet. This cake is a three layer chiffon cake, its a marble chiffon cake. For the handle I used fondant then covered it with aluminium foil and covered it again with pink ribbon.

I had fun making this cake and after I’m was done with it I was not really satisfied with my basket weave piping but it didn’t look like cake, it really looked like basket for me. There you are, my 2013 Easter basket cake.
