Minted's champagne flute cake tutorial shows amateur bakers how to recreate an elegant and artisanal dessert in the comfort of their own home. The budget-conscious tutorial is inspired by more expensive desserts but is focused on convenience while saving party planners money and time.

After purchasing or baking a plain cake -- a cake with pink icing is used in this tutorial -- bakers can add a custom message of encouragement to their dessert. "Cheers" is showcased in this particular instance but messages will vary according to occasion.

Once adorned with the message of one's choice, this champagne flute cake will actually be accented with mini plastic glasses, filled with one's choice of champagne, sparkling wine or iced tea for those looking to serve a non-alcoholic refreshment. These flutes are arranged around the dessert's frame, creating a festive and Instagrammable final product.
