This is an Easter Cake Basket that I made for our family Easter gathering.
I got the idea from here but I added a basket handle with a flower accent to make it look more like a basket. The handle is made from a cereal box that I wrapped with pink streamers. The icing was just spread smoothly across and sideways on the cake then I "scratched" patterns across the sides using a fork to mimick a woven basket.
Below is the middle of the basket cake where I added green grass (green colored icing), a few peeps and hershey eggs.
The inside of my cake has 2 layers and was colored by taking the white cake mix, separating it into several bowls and adding different food coloring to each mix. Then pour a little of each color slowly into the pan, even layering it on top of each other. I got the recipe idea from here.
And here's the result...
It was yummy!!!
