Delicious Wine and Cake Pairings

glasses of wineSometimes a little indulgence is just what you need, and what better way to indulge your sweet than with wine and cake? Here is a guide to help you choose the perfect wine to go with Jarosch’s specialty cakes near Chicago, IL.

Red Velvet – Pinot Noir

Red velvet is known for its delightfully smooth texture and cream cheese frosting. Pinot noir is the perfect accent to the chocolate undertones in red velvet cake.

Devil’s Food Cake – Red Blends

Chocolate and red wine are a match made in heaven. Red blends like cabernet, Grenache, and Syrah are excellent pairings for rich devil’s food.

White Cake – Riesling

The “off-dry” characteristic of Riesling is perfect for bringing out the flavors of vanilla-flavored cake. Pick up a white cake with vanilla icing from Jarosch, and get a bottle of Riesling on your way home and enjoy!

Lemon – Prosecco

Prosecco’s delicate citrus flavor is the perfect compliment to the lemon-flavored cake. The bubbles in prosecco will also intensify the tart flavors in the lemon, making both the wine and the cake taste so much better.

Yellow Cake with Chocolate Icing – Bordeaux

The notes of berry flavor and earthy aroma of Bordeaux is a beautiful contrast to the richness of the chocolate icing and the yellow cake underneath.
