With basket-weave-decorated desserts and simple basket centerpieces, there are numerous ways to play upon this bridal shower theme.
Cupcakes imitating baskets are an irresistible treat at a bridal shower. These cupcakes came topped with buttercream piped in basket weave patterns. Festive gold-foil liners enhance the illusion and won't let oil show through. We added paper ribbon handles (get the detailed how-to on the next slide). For garlands, string doll-sized baskets on gold twine. Secure the baskets with additional twine tied in a bow, then tuck a paperwhite floret in each.
The milk-chocolate topping of these cookies looks like the result of masterful piping, but it's actually a cinch to make using a mold. Beneath the chocolate hides a layer of peanut butter on top of brown-sugar shortbread, all of them adding up to a treat that's creamy, crumbly, and rich throughout.
The top and bottom sections of this grand cake display a classic basket-weave design, while the thick whorls (made with a petal tip) and braided wreaths (a round tip) of the middle tiers copy the artistry of baskets made by Maine's Wabanaki tribes. While this size may be too large for a shower, a smaller version with the basket weave design would be a perfect complement to a basket-themed shower.
