Wine Barrel Birthday Cake

Wine anyone? OK then, now how about some cake to go with that wine?

Today I am sharing with you a wine barrel cake I made for my father's 60th Birthday party. As you've may have guessed he love his homemade wine. So I thought this would be perfect  cake for him. Actually one of my earliest memories was of my dad stomping grapes with his feet the old fashioned way as they did back in Portugal, I think I was about 3 or 4!


This cake was made up up 3 layers - 1 vanilla and 2 chocolate. Baked in 6 inch pans. All frosted with vanilla butter cream icing and covered with fondant.

To create the wood grain look, I just scratched up the fondant using a fork and painted it with brown icing gel.


The label and the number 60 was created using my Silhouette Cameo. So much easier than having to make it out of fondant and icing!


Hope you liked my dad's Wine Barrel Birthday Cake!
Happy Birthday Dad, LOVE YOU!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)
