Easter Basket Cake

Easter cake was a challenge for me because I had to decorate it with buttercream. I like buttercream INSIDE the cake, I even enjoy smooth buttercream icing all over the cake. But when I have to pipe decorations with it, my hands just melt it. So it was a bit of a  juggling act: start with one color, pipe until it gets a little too easy, put it aside, quickly wash hands in icy cold water, grab another bag with different color and go on.  So this was the result: vanilla cake filled with vanilla buttercream and raspberry jam and iced with buttercream with some royal icing flowers.
