Wine Bottle Birthday Cakes

When I received the order for these cakes I wasn't super excited about making them. The client did not like fondant so they had to be covered in buttercream with only fondant accents so I wasn't sure I could make them as nice as I would have liked for them to be. Well I am actually very happy with how they turned out. I also ended up having a lot of fun making them and didn't realize it until I was almost finished and it was 3:00am. The only thing I had left to finish this morning was the grapes and vines. Both of the cakes were Chocolate with Raspberry filling and then covered in Vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream. I love that my time management is four times better than what it was three months ago. Especially with wedding season right around the corner.
