Grapevine Cake

Here is my first attempt with grapes for an italian themed retirement party. Constructive criticism is welcome! My DH thinks I should have made the grapes larger? The retiree just requested his cake be vanilla with a whipped type icing. I catered the entire event with the italian food and all so I think the cake suffered a little from the lack of time, but they liked it and that is what is important.

I like the cake. Maybe not make the grapes larger but you can pipe back over them to give them more of a 3-D effect. I think they look great!

I think it looks great. Since all they requested was vanilla with whipped icing you did a magnificent job in providing it for them to the 10th power.

I think it looks great! Nice basket weave and rope borders. The grapes and vines really set it off. You did good!!
