Not only is this Vineyard Celebration Cake dazzling to look at, but it tastes divine! Light and fluffy homemade Vanilla Cake is buttery and moist, and has a soft and light crumb – the best vanilla cake you have ever had! A Raspberry Filling keeps this cake super moist and adds a burst of flavor and color. Topped with a silky, delightfully spiked and sparkly Champagne Frosting, it’s classy enough for a wedding celebration. Fresh miniature champagne grapes are the perfect decoration - and so fun to eat!
For a special birthday cake, it’s also perfect with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting. This is my go-to recipe for homemade vanilla cake - perfect every time!

VINEYARD CELEBRATION CAKE DECORATING INSPIRATION:
For a simple look, stick with Champagne Frosting or Vanilla Buttercream Frosting, and garnish with fresh miniature champagne grapes. You can also decorate with smears of colorful frosting on the sides, or colorful buttercream flowers or fresh flowers – just make sure they are edible or food safe. Fresh berries and colorful sprinkles are also lovely!
