Wine and cake is a pairing made in heaven. The sweet taste of cake, the perfect sip of wine, the delight of indulging and treating yourself. The best way to pair cake is based on the boldness of the wine and the richness of the cake. Read on to see our favorite wine and birthday cake pairings.
Chocolate Cake and Red Blends
What pairs better than chocolate cake and red wine? Chocolate cake and a red blend is a delight for your taste buds. Red blends like our Racy Red, made of four varietals steal the show. The rich chocolate brings out the richness of the wine flavors. Our favorite chocolate cakes to pair with a red blend are German chocolate cake, molten chocolate cake, and chocolate mousse cake.
Vanilla Cake and Riesling
Riesling and vanilla cake make a great pairing because the sweetness of the wine brings out the flavors of the vanilla cake. Pair your favorite white cake and vanilla frosting with a cold glass of riesling for a sweet delight.
Funfetti and Sparking Rosé
What’s funner than Funfetti cake? Funfetti pairs well with a bubbly that’s just as fun and can balance each sugar filled bite. The bubbles help cleanse the palette so you can enjoy the whole slice.
Lemon Cake and Sauvignon Blanc
Lemon cake with lemon butter frosting has a lightness and freshness that matches pairs well with a crisp Sauvignon Blanc. The lightness and delicate flavors of a sauv blanc like Sexy Sauv will bring out the tartness of the lemon cake making both the cake and Sexy Sauv taste even more delicious!
So celebrate, have your cake and drink some wine, too.
