7 Wine-and-Cake Pairings That Make Wine and Cake Even Better

Have your cake and drink wine, too.

You know what you deserve? Cake. You know what you also deserve? Wine. Together. Delicious cake and wine together
[post_ads_2] and Laura Burgess, a Vivino Partner Sommelier, came up with delicious cake and wine pairings for your next celebration. Or night in. Because you don't need a celebration to enjoy cake and wine, really. 

Burgess understands that cake might not be the go-to dessert when it comes to wine, but she wants you to know that when the two come together it's delicious. She says that the key to these pairings is to pair the wine with the cake frosting, because that will change the flavor of your dessert more than anything. Let's get to it.

1. Red Velvet Cake and Pinot Noir

The signature cake of basic women around the world, red velvet is a damn delight. With its smooth texture and cream cheese frosting, it's delicious. Burgess suggests pairing this with a Pinot Noir to accent the chocolate undertones in red velvet cake with cherry and berry flavors. Burgess recommends Red Velvet cake with Gérard Bertrand Réserve Spéciale Pinot Noir

2. Funfetti Cake and Sparkling Rosé

Your next birthday dessert and drink situation has been figured out for you. Burgess says that Funfetti cake demands wine that's fun and can revive a sugar-stained palate. "Delicate, creamy strawberry flavors are refreshing, and bubbles literally cleanse the palate," she says. Burgess recommends Funfetti cake with Patrick Bottex La Cueille Bugey-Cerdon

3. Chocolate Devil's Food Cake and Red Blends

"Red blends, especially domestic ones that combine a range of varieties like Cabernet, Grenache, and Syrah, steal the show," Burgess says. She says the combination of chocolate-covered cake slices and red wine is like "a spa day for your palate." I'm into it. Burgess recommends chocolate devil's food cake with Chappellet Mountain Cuvée

4. White Wedding Cake with Vanilla Frosting and Riesling

Pro tip for pairing vanilla cake and wine: Bottles labelled "off-dry"— which are slightly sweet — are key, because they'll bring out the best flavors in the vanilla cake. Burgess recommends pairing white wedding cake that has vanilla frosting with Château Ste. Michelle Riesling.

5. Cheesecake and White Dessert Wine

Burgess says "there's just nothing like fluffy cheesecake at parties, dinners, or [for] Netflix marathons." Amen. She says dessert wines — in particular whites like Sauternes and Cerons — work best. "The high fat content in cheesecake begs for a wine with acid to keep things refreshing," she says. Burgess recommends pairing cheesecake with Château De Rayne Vigneau Sauternes 1er Cru Classé

6. Lemon-Flavored Cake and Prosecco

Similar to lemon cake, Prosecco is light. Burgess says that delicate flavors of orange and citrus plus the bubbles will intensify the tart lemon in the cake, making the wine and cake better. That is #WinePairingGoals, after all. Burgess recommends pairing lemon cake with Sommariva Conegliano Valdobbiadene Superiore Brut Prosecco.

7. Yellow Birthday Cake with Chocolate Icing and Bordeaux

 "The combination of earthy aromas and berry flavors of Bordeaux contrast the intensely chocolate frosting and crumbly yellow cake, making for a perfect pairing when sticky palates and Bordeaux collide," Burgess says. She recommends pairing yellow birthday cake and Tire Pé DieM Bordeaux.
