Basket weave Cupcakes

Success!  I have been wanting to make a basket weave cupcake for a l-o-n-g time and I had the perfect occasion last week when I hosted Euchre Night. 

I had noticed a picture in an old issue of Country Home magazine of a platter of cupcakes - one was a basket weave pattern made with two different frosting tips (basket weave flat and round zigzag edge) and two different colors of frosting. 

It looked darling in the magazine and this was the perfect time to try it.  I'm so happy with the result!  It wasn't too hard and it made an everyday dessert, a little extra special.  Want to try making a basket weave pattern in frosting?  I found a great video by Wilton that shows you how.  Good luck!
