Celebrating a New Year

Celebrating a New YearA sight to behold, Champagne and Grapefruit Layer Cake dazzles with bright citrus. Airy cake flavored with orange extract is brushed after baking with sparkling wine. Ribbons of ruby red grapefruit curd add pleasant tang, while swirls of grapefruit buttercream provide a velvety counterpoint. Smooth white fondant, including accents gilded with luster dust, offers the coup de grâce to this festive dessert.
