So after great success with the Chardonnay Cake and frosting I was ready to jump into some more Vino inspired batters. Well.... Not nearly the success that I was hoping for. I tried to make a chocolate based Merlot cake and frosting. In the baking cups the cake smelled wonderful but once out there was no taste of the Merlot. Then came the frosting I tried to mix in fresh raspberries to Chocolate Buttercream. Smelled great and the taste was wonderful. The fresh fruit acid broke the frosting. Bummed but will try again.
