Cheese & Wine Anyone??

Hey, who spilled the wine?? Hee, hee... This is a cake I made as a surprise for my husband's clients, John and Lisa. They were having a housewarming party for their new place. All of Lisa's relatives were down from NYC. Made me miss being back home for a second....
The cake was two flavors. The cheese was chocolate butter cake with cookies and cream filling and the big loaf of bread was coconut butter cake, filled with strawberries, pineapple, and Italian meringue buttercream. Each layer had a Malibu rum soak. I was doing everything I could NOT to put a little in my glass! (It was 5 o'clock somewhere!)


These were some of the fun details.... The wine glass was made from gumpaste and all of the details were fondant.
The cake board was covered with fondant and hand painted to look like wood.
I made the bottle using rice krispie treats, covered in chocolate fondant. I airbrushed it with antique green luster dust to give it a nice green glimmer. I never used rice krispie treats before and have a LOT more to learn about it!

And, of course, one of my biggest cake fans!!
Today is my daugther Sophia's birthday! Happy Birthday to my little sweetheart!! We are celebrating it in a couple of weeks. She has already placed an order for her cake!! Stay tuned!!

I LOVE it!! Great job on everything! The wine bottle looks great- whenever I've used RKT, I can never get it so the rough texture is hidden. Can't wait to see your daughter's cake!

WOW! Great job. I'm a fellow TWD baker, and I was thinking that it would be nice if we all could chip in and get Laurie some small token/gift for all the work she does. Would you be willing to contribute? If I can get enough people, it would only be about $1 per person. No pressure :-) Let me know! bethberg12@yahoo.com
