I was asked by a friend to make a cake in the shape of the Remy Martin Cognac bottle pictured below for her mom's 50th birthday. I have never done a "bottle" shape cake before. I am going to lie the bottle flat against a cake board and not make it free standing. My main concern is getting the color right. Does anyone know how I can create the nice amber color of the cognac? I will be covering the cake in fondant and I don't have an airbrush. I was thinking of sponging the color on. Does this sound like a good idea? Is there a luster dust that comes in an amber color? Any other tips would be appreciated.
There is a Wilton Color gel called Camel and I combined it with Piping gel to get the amber-ish color on my leopard. I am not as versed in fondant but I "think" you could combine a little of the camel color with vodka to paint it on fondant?
just paint the cognac on there (just kidding honest) looks yummy though.. lovely style bottle would make an excellent cake
Thanks for your help
