Gerbera Daisy Basketweave Cake
Ingredients and Supplies
  • 6", 8" and 10" square cakes
  • yellow and light brown rolled fondant
  • white buttercream
  • gerbera daisy gumpaste flowers
  • gumpaste leaves
  • piping gel
Cover all tiers with light yellow rolled fondant. Stack using your preferred stacking method. Roll out long strips of light brown fondant ( a pasta machine works wonderfully for this) and impress with basketweave rolling pin. Cut strips to about 1 1/2" for top edge of top cake and bottom edge of bottom cake. Brush piping gel on cake and apply ribbon. Cut strip to about 2" for middle tier and apply to middle of tier. Use light brown fondant in an extruder clay gun to create rope. Attach rope trim to both edge of middle tier and bottom edge of top tier and top edge of bottom tier. Use white buttercream with #2 tip to pipe scrolls winding up side of cake. Pipe little teardrops randomly all over cake. Attach gumpaste flowers and leaves, one on each tier and on top.
