Autumn means baskets and apples. Why not a basket full of apples cake?



Autumn is a great time to celebrate the wonderful apple season. Even if you don't get to go apple  picking you can decorate your cakes in the Autumn theme.

The cake below is a 9" round, double layer cake.
The side of the cake is done in the basket weave technique. This can be done with a little patience and a lot of practice.


The apples are made from red fondant, shaped into macintosh apples

The leaves on the apples are made from Jellied Mint leaves and the stem is made from Tootsie
rolls, shaped into the stems.

The apples have red edible glitter on them and the leaves have green edible glitter on them. 



Basketweave technique 

as posted at: www.wilton.com

Basketweave


Difficulty Level: Somewhat Easy
This technique turns any treat into beautiful baskets. Perfect for Easter, Mother's Day, bridal or any Spring and summertime theme.

Instructions:

Step 1

Using Tip 47, serrated side up, and medium consistency icing, hold the bag and tip at 45° angle at 6:00 for vertical stripes or at 3:00 (9:00) for horizontal bars. Lightly touch the surface of your cake. Squeeze out a vertical stripe of icing from top to bottom (shown ridged side up).

Step 2

Squeeze out short horizontal stripes of icing across the vertical stripe starting at the top. Spacing between stripes should be the same as the width of the tip opening. Squeeze next vertical stripe over ends of horizontal stripes. Start next set of horizontal stripes by burying the tip under the first vertical stripe.

Step 3

Squeeze next vertical stripe over ends of horizontal stripes. Start next set of horizontal stripes by burying the tip under the first vertical stripe. Squeeze, pulling hand back slowly and lifting tip over vertical stripe and then back down again. Repeat vertical lines then horizontal lines until you achieve basketweave effect. Each new set should fit between the previous set.

 
Impress your family with this technique. With practice you will be doing this in no time.


Keep on Baking!!! Fondly, DCRose
