I made this cake for one of my husband’s coworkers. It was her birthday and she loves wine. This cake was perfect for her.
This was an easy cake to make.
The wine box is a red velvet cake with buttercream icing. I sugar glued brown fondant panels to the side of the cake. Shaved white chocolate was placed around the bottle to give it a straw appearance. The wine bottle is made of gum paste and the label is made of fondant. I let the gum paste bottle and fondant panels dry out overnight. This made it easier to decorate.
I learned how to make this cake from My Cake School. Melissa is the amazing cake decorator that runs the site and tutorials. It is $30 a year to become a member and you get access to all of her video tutorials, forums and recipes. The membership is absolutely worth the money spent. I have learned so much from Melissa and her website.
Do you drink wine? If so, what is your favorite type of wine? What is your least favorite?
---I love wine. Lately, I have been drinking mostly chardonnay and malbec wines. Shiraz is my least favorite; it is too spicy for my taste.
