Another Harley Birthday Cake!

I love making repeat cakes!  Why?  Because I've already made it so I know what mistakes to avoid and how to time out my plan properly, which is incredibly important when you have a toddler to chase around while working on a cake.  This cake was for my new sister-in-law's dad.  His birthday was the day of my brother & her wedding, so they asked me to make a special birthday cake for him to have the night of the rehearsal dinner. 

Bridal Shower Wine Cake

This is the second wine cake I've made!  This time instead of making the cake look like a barrel, I made it look like a basket via basket weaving with icing.  I tried making an edible wine glass and wine bottle, but it was just not working out so well, so I went with the next best thing - a mini bottle of wine and a small wine glass.  I love the way it turned out.
