The other day i saw these chocolate panettones baked in folded paper cases on wild yeast blog.
I just love handmade stuff and i knew i had make these cute lil baskets.You can find detailed instructions on how to make these origami baskets here.
I used 13 cms x 20 cms baking paper.
Firstly mark the center of the longer side ( at 10 cms)(you can also mark the center of the shorter side and continue with the rest of the steps to make a longer basket)
Fold the two sides towards the marked center point.
Fold the corners(as shown in the picture) towards the center,leaving almost 1 cms from the center line.
Repeat this for all the 4 corners as shown in the picture.
Now fold each 1cms flap upwards .
Press the side to form a sharp corner after insert your thumb into a corner as a guide.
Repeat this with the rest of the corners.
I used these baskets to make egg less carrot cake !! They make perfect christmas/new year gifts!!!
