Serve a Pat­terned Pas­try

Martha Stewart Weddings - - THE PALETTE -

This clever gum-paste “pic­nic bas­ket” is a mod­ern take on old-school bas­ket-weave but­ter­cream. The ex­tra stroke of bril­liance? A glassy layer of apri­cot glaze atop each tier, which com­ple­ments the al­mond cake be­neath and adds beau­ti­ful color. MSW con­tribut­ing edi­tor Ja­son Schreiber cov­ered the cake with tinted fon­dant be­fore adding the strained jam, tak­ing the friendly orange hue up to elec­tri­fy­ing. Can­vas flow­ers pressed into the lat­tice make for an ever pret­tier fin­ish ($10 for 15, east­coast­trim­ming.com).
