- Lets start decorating the sides of the cake.I tried the basket weave design,using the wave tip piping.First pipe a vertical line and then draw a short horizontal lines on top of the vertical line.
- Then Pipe another vertical line at the end of the horizontal stripes.
- Again pipe horizontal lines across,this time fitting them between the first set of horizontal lines.
