I was on a cake web site and found a cake style labled with this name. It was really pretty and would love to figure out how to do it. Does anyone have those directions???

I am wondering, were you looking at Wedding Cake Lady's site?

looks like she used tip 104 somehow but can't seem to figure out how yet. I bet it's soooo simple.

You know it looks like they took a knife or small spade and made the marks in the sides of the cake. I don't think it was piped on. That looks like it would take a while. Very pretty though, it reminds me of the old shaker style wooden boxes.

Martha Stewart did one that was similar a long time ago. It was done somehow with a butterknive making the pattern. Wanting instant gratification, I tried it but gave up.

Do you think the weddingcakelady would share the technique with us? That basketweave is gorgeous. I wonder if anyone on here has that wedding issue.

Who knows? Some cake artists love to share their knowledge with others, even strangers. Yet other cake artists won't even reply and say they do not share their secrets. All you can do is try. The worst is that she can say no, right?

If you get it, start a new thread for us!

I am going to contact them in the morning and see if they will share it. Most decorators love to share. Who knows.

Yes that is the one!!! And I already emailed her ...like two weeks ago. She never returned my email.

I would so love to learn to do this. Thanks everyone!!

It looks like possibly you could do this using a flat basketweave tip, but twisting the tip for each section you pipe on.

It's hard to see it well in the picture, but it looks like each small section is a twist of icing, similar to how you would do a half-twist with a piece of ribbon.

I'll try to get time later today to play with it and see if I can get it to look like that. That'll give me something to do while the kids are getting ready for school! icon_biggrin.gif
