This cake was too fun. I am always up for a challenge and this cake was just that. When Lori showed me the cake she wanted me to make for her and her husbands birthday I was excited. It has real grapes on top, I thought that would be a fun touch for a birthday celebration at a wine bar. She wanted italian cream cake which I must say was a first for me but it turned out really yummy. I love being able to add new flavors to my list of can dos. I hope you guys had a fun time celebrating your 40th birthdays together, which I think is really awesome that you got to do. Happy Birthday Brian and Lori!! Thank you for this really cool opportunity!
