Basketweave Cake with Royal Icing Flowers

Another work i have done recently.

Royal icing are basically made of egg whites, icing sugar & water to adjust the consistency.

A variety of colors can be added in to pipe out all sorts of interesting flowers & figure designs.

In this post, i have piped out quite a number of flowers (violet, violet leaves, apple blossom, primrose, pansy, just to name a few...)

The basketweave effect u saw are painstakingly piped out (single lines by single lines, vertically & horizontally) using buttercream icing.

Instead of just slather with buttercream, cake design can be wonderfully enhanced by using this technique, thus create a pleasing effect.
