Ateco No. 789 Cake Ice Basket weave Decorating Tip**
Preparing a perfectly smooth iced cake, while keeping crumbs out of the icing can seem like a tricky thing–but over the years we've developed some methods to make it easier. Start by positioning the cake on its serving board on the turntable. Remember to thin the icing with 3-4 Tablespoons of corn syrup so it spreads easier. The trick to keeping crumbs out of your icing is to glide your spatula over the icing, never allowing the spatula to touch the cake surface or to pull already spread icing from the cake surface.
This basketweave tip makes both smooth and ribbed stripes.
**Tip does not work with coupler. Use with parchment or uncut bags only.
