Finished Baskets - Part 2



  • I have bought trifle dishes. (White plastic large bowls) There were 5 in a pack and I have covered them in red tissue paper. I was pessimistic at first but they look great!

    I'll post pics when I get chance!

  • I've made five of these foodie gift hampers this year (first time) and I'm so pleased with them...I'm giving them to people in the run up to Christmas rather than on Christmas day when they are less likely to eat what's inside (as there always seems to be loads left over after Christmas itself).


    I used 10 inch wicker baskets that I found on ebay - and each hamper works out at around £10-£14 each, including all the packaging. :j

  • Hi,
    I'm not sure if this is the right post to ask this question, but I have been looking through this wonderful thread and wondered where you got the flannel cake bases from (brown checked ones or something similar).
