Top Wine-Inspired Cakes

In the August 2013 issue of Cake Central Magazine, we featured more than 50 pages of cakes celebrating wine’s artful journey from earth to bottle. From harvest to barreling, the winemaking process lends itself beautifully to dynamic and conceptual cake design.

We decided to take a look back through the forums at some of the best wine-themed cakes made by the Cake Central community. Instead of a bottle of bubbly, consider bringing one of these masterpieces to your next house warming party! Here are our Top Wine Cakes.
