Wine Wednesday: Lemon Blueberry Mini Fluted Cakes and Chardonnay

Wine Wednesday Dessert Pairing | Wilton Cake Decorating | Lemon Blueberry Mini Fluted Cakes with Kendall-Jackson Late Harvest ChardonnayWelcome to our first of five Wine Wednesdays! Can you think of any better way to get through the rest of the week?
