Make a quick and easy Easter Basket Cake with this free cake decorating tutorial! This Kit Kat Easter Basket Cake is excellent for Easter parties!  


– Your cake of choice. We started with a cake tier that was 6 inches wide and about 4 inches tall. – Classic Vanilla Buttercream Frosting – White Chocolate Kit Kats (we used the snack size as that is what was available-- I needed 16 of the small snack sizes packs which have two Kit Kat bars per pack rather than the usual four.) – Hershey Egg – Brown Paper Wrapped Wire in a sturdy yet pliable gauge). Our wires were 18 inches however if you need longer you can attach two pieces for additional length.- As an alternative, you can fold card stock around sturdy floral wire, and wrap it with ribbon as usual. – Decorative ribbon for wrapping around handle. – White Chocolate Bunny - (Use whatever you like, I used a Lindt white chocolate bunny) – Ribbon for bunny- optional. I attached with a little piping gel

After putting a thin layer of frosting on top of your tier and filling it, take the Kit Kats out of the package and set them to the side.

I used two brown paper-covered wires to make the handle for my Easter basket. Wrap the wires in ribbon.

Shape it into the shape you want, and then push each end into a straw to make a barrier and hold it in place on the cake. Based on the height of the cake, you may need to cut the straw.

After pressing the handle into the cake, add the White Chocolate Bunny, Eggs, Easter grass (which can be eaten or piped with a wire tip), and so on.
