Basket Weave Chocolate Cake

Okay  know I have been the cake lady this week but this is my last one. I made this cake last night and it is my very first cake order! Someone actually paid me to make this! Yipee!!!

It's very simple and I think it turned out great. I tried a new recipe for the cake, filling, and the frosting and they all turned out wonderfully! My husband was in heaven when I let him eat the scraps :)

This was only my second cake with the basket weave around the sides. It's not perfect but I am absolutely in love with the basket weave. Every cake I make from now on will have a basket weave. ;) 

I informed my husband last night that I am going professional and will soon make enough money to replace my salary at work so that I can work from home. He laughed but I insisted that I was serious ;) Okay...well maybe it's a dream. 


  1. Wow--impressive! Congratulations, James!

  2. It looks fabulous!!! Basket weave is one of my all time favorite things to do on a cake...looks super impressive and is super easy to do:-) And if you keep up the great work, I totally see you working from home!!!

  3. nice job. I would love to let my youngest dd take a few classes on cake decorating I think she would love it.
