Wine & Chocolate… Kinda

How fun is this design? My client sent me this photo to copy for her sister’s birthday. She needed it larger and swapped out the fondant sides for buttercream ruffles. We also changed the lady’s hair color, I think to match the actual birthday girl’s hair.

I used a small, real bottle of wine for the topper. I emptied it and re-attached the foil just to help with weight. The lady, her bag and bottle are made from modeling chocolate. She did have a toothpick running through her torso to help keep her together, but I really should have given her a wire base for her whole body. I didn’t realize it till it was too late, but her arms had some issues staying attached– probably due to the angle.

Overall, I was pretty happy with the cake. I hope you had a great birthday Shirl!
