Basketweave Funfetti Cake


temp-tations® 3 Quart Basketweave Baker

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Bake Time: 55-70 minutes

Refrigeration Time: 8 hours or overnight

Decorating Time: 30 minutes



2 Boxes Funfetti Cake mix

Water, eggs and oil according to recipe

4 containers purple colored icing



  1. Pour the cake mix in a bowl.  Add the eggs, water and oil as per recipe and mix the batter accordingly to directions on the box
  2. Lightly spray your temp-tations® 3 Quart Basketweave Baker with non-stick cooking spray and pour batter in.
  3. Bake at 325° for 55-70 minutes, until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.  Remove from oven and allow to cool. Remove from pan and place in the refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight.
  4. When completely cool, slice the cake into thirds horizontally. Separate the layers on the counter in front of you.  
  5. Place the bottom layer on your temp-tations serving plater.  With one can of the icing, evenly spread 1/3 of the can over the top of the bottom layer.  Top with middle layer and spread top with the next 1/3 of icing.  Take the top layer and put upside down on top of the icing, giving you a nice, flat top.  Take the remaining icing and evenly spread over the top of the icing.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  6. Remove from refrigerator.  Lightly coat the sides of the cake with icing, to seal in any crumbs.
  7. Place a basketweave tip in an icing bag and fill with a container of icing, refilling as necessary. 
  8. Hold the decorating bag at a 45° angle at 6:00 , with tip lightly touching the surface of the iced cake and the serrated side of the tip up. Squeeze, allowing icing to attach to surface, then continue squeezing out a vertical strip of icing from the top of the cake to the bottom. Stop squeezing; pull tip away.
  9. With bag at a 45° angle at 3:00, squeeze out short horizontal stripes of icing over the vertical line starting at the top. Spacing between horizontal stripes should be the same as the width of the tip opening; the length for each stripe should be identical.
  10. Squeeze next vertical line over ends of horizontal stripes. Start next set of horizontal stripes by burying the tip under the first (or previous) vertical line.
  11. Repeat vertical lines then horizontal stripes, always piping a single vertical line, until you have covered the area with basketweave. Each new set of lines should fit between the previous set.
  12. Switch to a star tip and pipe a border around the top and the bottom of the cake.
  13. Enjoy!
