I have to admit, I really wasn't looking forward to having my final cake from cake class look like a basket. From the pictures that we saw, it definitely looked like something that my grandmothers would buy (not that there's anything wrong with that but it was just not me). But, my darling cake instructor, Gail, was very encouraging and suggested that we try it anyways. Well, I have to say, despite the large amount of work that goes into it, I really liked the way it looked in the end.

And here, ladies and gents, is the finished product. I must admit, I am in love!
|The flowers are all homemade in royal icing|
|I had some extra flowers and just had them poking out all around the basket because I can :)|
