Birthday Cake in Florence, Italy. this tiered celebration cake was made of chocolate fudge cake with raspberries.
The cake was decorated in Chocolate that was embossed and painted to look like the wood of a tuscan wine barrel.
On the outside we created a hand painted label for the barrel that used the quote by Pope John XXIII
“Men are like wine – some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age.”
Loved this as a birthday cake, but even as we made it – I thought it would be perfect for a outdoor wedding in Tuscany.
