I want to make a wine bottle out of Gum Paste. I am planning on greasing a wine bottle with shortening and then just molding the gum paste over the bottle in two sperate pieces. Do you guys think this will work or is there a better suggestion.

Go to Sharon Zambito's blog- she sent out an email tonight showing how to do the very thing you want to do. Yes, it is possible.

I made a whiskey bottle to put on top of 1 of my cakes (pic in my photo album) I shaped the bottle out of rice krispee treets then covered it with fondant, air brushed it and did some detail work by hand. Came out ok for a first try i guess

I did a teacup shape once (so - more simple than the bottle) and the one I greased and the one I saran wrapped did not work. The one I coated in powdered sugar did. That will be difficult for that shape tho.... can you do top and bottom instead of 2 sides? That would be easier to mold separately and then fit and trim pieces together later.

Well I have done the two sides. They are still doing the drying thing but they haven't stucked to the bottle so I will be putting them together tomorrow night.
