An Esterházy torte with a fondant base and box, sugarcraft grapes and leaves, shredded coconut “straw” and a fondant bottle with edible printed label. Made for my Uncle Doug’s 70th birthday.
The wording on the label reads:
“A well matured blend from our Hampton, Elsternwick and Caulfield vineyards. Bold, and strong with a warm side. Bone dry, yet very approachable, just as happy at home with a burger as a banquet with fillet mignon. A timeless classic.”
The label is a parody of the Bannockburn Douglas label (one of Doug’s sentimental favourites), with the eagle being replaced by an old family favourite, a German Short Haired Pointer. It was designed by my husband Mark and printed by the folks at CustomIcing.com.au
