Guess this is the right place to put this. Every year I do a couple of basket cakes for the Palm Sunday picnic at church. They have an old fashioned cake walk for the kids as one of the activities.

The other one is the same except that it has a chick on it.

That is adorable. I've been wanting to maybe getting into cake decorating and taking classes but I don't want to have all this sweet stuff around. You did a great job.

That looks terrific Carol. I know how time consuming that basket weave is. You are amazing.

Very pretty, it's been years since I've heard of any one still doing cake walks. :)

Beautiful job!! It (almost) looks too good to eat.

I was really frustrated with them. The icing I use uses powdered milk & for some reason it was leaving lumps in the icing that kept clogging up the tip. The basked tip was bad enough but the grass tip was impossible so ended up using a star tip. Not the kind of grass I wanted but had no choice. I even put the powdered milk through a sifter trying to get it fine enough not to clump. Moral is don't buy the cheap brand of powdered milk.

I really enjoyed cake decorating but the arthritis started making it too uncomfortable.
