I was introduced to the art of weaving in my college days as an art student.  When our project was due, I wove an oversized cereal bowl using boxes of Rice Krispies.  It was quite the sight to see a somewhat pregnant lady walking around campus with strips of flimsy cardboard going in every direction (I had to transport the project to classes & home several days in a row to get it done.)

On Tuesday night, I learned a new weaving technique that is much easier & absolutely more delicious. 

Guess what we're having for dessert tonight?? ;)



  1. Oh Ana I wanna come to your house for dessert-that cake is BEEEutiful!

  2. Wow! That's beautiful! What a difference since the cake on the other blog!

  3. did you basket weave with fondant and then stick it on there? ive been trying to figure that out. i want to do basket weave for an easter cake.

  4. Aleks -
    I did the basketweave right on the cake. You cover the cake in frosting first & then do the basketweave right over it (I used buttercream frosting). I'm sure you could find a youtube video to get instructions. It's easy once you get the pattern down. I would suggest that you practice on a flat surface first just to get the hang of it. Let me know if you want me to do a tutorial & I'll put one together for ya!
