Baskets of Berries

Martha Stewart Weddings, 2004

Early summer is the best time to choose a cake like this one -- brimming with a fresh and varied assortment of the season's best berries. Red currants, raspberries, gooseberries, blueberries, and strawberries look beautiful jumbled together on basket-weave tiers. The basket-weave effect was created using an oversize leaf tip. The cake's three tiers are supported by wooden dowels; the berries are arranged before the dowels are inserted, which helps hide the supports.

    Want to make this cake for my sister-in-law's wedding, but have a few questions, namely: 1)Over-sized leaf tip, which one? 2)Any piping technique strategy 3)Am looking for cake type/filling suggestions. Am thinking vanilla/chocolate/coconut for the tiers, respectively? Any suggestions would be most welcome!
