Piping RecipeA couple of people asked me bout recipe for the basket cake.. actualy there is no recipe for the basket weave.
The main thg is the whipping cream.
Just get a box of cream(I use Phoon Huat Topping cream), and whisk it till stiff peak, add chocolate colouring. and start piping. I tried freezing the cream overnight as suggested by a few friends but the piping do not turn out as good. Either the cream is too hard, or when it soften its very runny. So I prefer freshly whip cream.
Of cos if u wan very intensive colour U might need to add alot of liquid or gel colouring and it may thin your cream causing it to be runny again.. so for the basket, I used chocolate emuulco... it works wonderfully. So probably if I want a pink basket I shall use strawberry emulco next time. And lemon emulco for a yellow basket =)
About those pattenrs.. no recipe of cos.. its all about the tips u buy fr the shop and keep practising with them.. I really lack of practice.. Gonna use my left over cream and start piping soon..
