Martha's "new" basketweave???? - Page 3

post #31 of 88
What a gorgeous cake!
Being the "wet, behind the ears" beginner that I am, I feel silly throwing in my two cents....BUT, I think it looks like a mini-trowel type tool, diamond shaped...one used in sculpting clay, just laid on the icing to leave an impression. I can't wait to find out how it's really done!

I also think its a basketweave tip that is given a 1/2 twist ..or at least it appears to be that way. Has anyone figured this out yet..I'd love to hear from you if you have..

I still haven't heard back from anyone yet. I think I will call Christy. I have been working on other things so I haven't called but I will call tomorrow.

You know what it kind of looks like to me......
it looks like you use the basket weave tip and some how criss cross it in each section...
I don't know, but that's what it looks like to me...

Ok...I went to photo shop and studied it close up the best I could. It is not piped is my conclusion. It is crusted buttercream and a tool is used to make the indents into the cake. I am going to try what I think it is this weekend to see.

I'm certainly no expert, but there are lit candles on that cake. Wouldn't it have to be fondant? Any type of buttercream would melt.

I think it is an impression on the icing. Could be wrong,but that is my guess. It is beautiful!

I went to the Cake & Sugar Arts competition in Austin, TX this past weekend and one of the vendors had a rolling pin that I wondered if "Martha" used on that cake.

It's called a "Deep Basket Weave Rolling Pin" and it's shown here. It's quite angular, so I wonder if it would produce the depth that appears in that buttercream cake. I can't see the picture of the icing very well, so I could be way off the mark.

Hey!! I think that's it!! But instead of rolling it horizontally, they rolled it vertically!!
