When someone’s nick name is Champagne Sherri, its pretty obvious what kind of cake to make!   And with a party at the 40/40 Club you know it had to be fabulous birthday cake for a fabulous birthday.  This champagne bottle cake is a cereal treat bottle of Dom, in a cake crate.    The logo is hand painted along the side of the aged crate.  A few purple blossoms (Sherri’s favorite color) add a little feminine touch.  Sherri looks amazing!  Thanks for sharing the great photo.

 

Surprisingly to me, this is my first champagne crate cake, but not my first champagne bottle cake….    I love making them from poured sugar.  They look just like the real thing.  Did you know this is what breakaway bottles for theater and film are made from?   And one of my very favorite buttercream flavors is champagne…

 

 

 

And don’t forget the Champagne Bottle Cookies! Yummmmmm….
