This cake was suppose to be ‘simple’ but when I found out the theme I couldn’t just make a ‘simple’ one. The theme was little lambs, pottery barn style. Now, I’ve seen a few similar basket design cakes but usually they use an impression mat to give it a nice pop of texture. I decided I wanted to go a little bit more detailed so here is what I did…

This wicker basket is a double barrel. Every single little weave (is that what they are called?) was individually placed onto the cake.. all 4 million of them! Once the basket, rims and handles were all completed I airbrushed it.. then of course I ran out of brown airbrush coloring – yikes – not fun to do at 1 am!! So with that idea thrown out I hand painted over it gave it a nice natural rub.. Ta Da!

The sweet little lamb was made out of RKT and fondant. The blankets and washcloths were also fondant. Next I decided a soft cream colored buttercream carpet would look perfect. TFL
