My daughter-in-law had her bridal shower at a winery so I thought it would be nice to challenge myself and create a wine barrel cake for the occasion. It’s a two flavored cake, chocolate and red velvet. The grapes were made from modelling chocolate, as well as, the leaves; ah, the leaves lol. Well I didn’t have a grape leaf cutter; you see I’m new to this ;0)… but I had a grape vine in my back yard so yep, I made the leaves from real grape leaves… that was a fun challenge! I coated the grapes with orange juice and apricot glaze. The other cake was an eggless cake frosted with home made sugar; my rendition of a naked cake…lol
Everyone enjoyed the cake!!!
