Recipe

Basket of Fruit

This work of art is a magnificent collection of nearly life-size marzipan peaches, pears, oranges, and apples. The fruits are flanked with marzipan leaves, berries, and gumpaste blossoms.

On the bottom, the basket is iced in smocked panels with stitchwork, and finished off with clusters of blossoms. The result is truly an outstanding piece that's suitable for the finale of a lavish dinner party.

SKILLS NEEDED
Marzipan fruit modeling
Smocked panels
Gumpaste flowers

Black-and-white cake

This one-tier wedding or anniversary cake resembles an elegant dress with lacy puffed shoulders.
Elegant classical drapery adorns the bottom of the cake, along with pyramid piping and gumpaste ribbons. Each seam of the drapery work is decorated with a black-and-white four-petal blossom.

On the shoulder of the cake are filigree scrolls with pyramid piping. The scrolls are piped and air-dried on plastic wrap and carefully removed and attached with dots of royal icing. Pretty drop stringwork is piped near the shoulder of the cake and a beautiful flooded monogram sits on a diamond-shaped pastillage plaque with embroidery piping and line work.

Last, the cake board is lavishly decorated with freehand drapery work.

SKILLS NEEDED

Filigree scrolls and pyramid piping
Classical drapery
Drop string pipework
Pastillage plaque
Flooded monogram
Pattern for flooded monogram
Pattern for scalloped edges
4-petal blossom
Freehand embroidery

NEW SKILL: BASKET WEAVE

QUICK PREP

Ingredients
6 oz (170 g) Practice Buttercream Icing

Equipment
#46 or #48 basketweave tip
12-in (30.5 cm) fl ex pastry bag or lightweight pastry bag
8-in (20.32 cm) round Styrofoam attached to a 10-in (25.40 cm) cardboard round

Although basket weaving is an old-world technique, it is still commonly used and produces a stunning cake without a lot of effort. Amateurs and pros alike can give a tailored look to a cake with basket weave. With a little effort, your basket weave cake can be a work of art.

Basket weaving can be accomplished with several types of icing tips. Although the #46 and #48 are popular tips and often used to create this look, you can use round tips (#7, #8, #9,
#10, #12), star tips (#16, #18, #20, #21, #22), or even petal-shaped tips (#101, #102, #103, or #104).

DECORATOR'S HINT If you are practicing on a flat surface, position the icing tip and pastry bag at a 45° angle to it. Use the lift-and-drop technique to move the icing to the desired points on the surface.

Photo caption
Left, top to bottom: The steps to create basket weave, using different colors and a #18 star tip for the downstroke. Right, top to bottom: The downstroke, crossover strokes, another downstroke that covers the first round of crossover strokes, and a crossover stroke over the second downstroke.
