Probably over a year ago now, I made a Sangria-inspired cake. I was super-proud of it at the time, but I used cake mixes for the cake layers, tried to use a mirror glaze for the drip (fortunately it was a bit too cold to run like mirror glaze is supposed to; only reason it worked as a drip! :/ ) and just felt like the whole thing could use a do-over.
I also learned that scratch layers gave a much better sangria flavor than starting with boxed mixes, so while you can do either I do recommend the recipe below!
If you're feeling adventurous and want to tackle a two-tiered version of the same cake, you can find that recipe here!
