Aww You're welcome! And thank you!

I would have never even thought of doing anything like this if it wasn't for everyone in this forums inspiration and creativity! I can't believe I did it! LOL!

I'm not sure if it is food safe or not. I'm trying to think of a way to attach them to a cake round that I can place on top of the cake, then cover it with the "ice", so that way when it comes time to cut the cake, all I have to do is just lift the cake round off in one piece and set it aside.

I wish it had a bottom. Because it isn't even on the bottom, it is a little wobbly. It stands up, but it's a leaner. LOL

Thanks for posting these directions. I love that there are pictures with it, it makes it so much easier to understand when you can see it. Some day I will work up the nerve (or find a reason) to do something like that.

I made some ice today.

I got out my aluminum foil and crinkled it, and then I sprayed it with cooking spray, but I noticed my spray had a yellowish tint to it. It isn't the butter flavor, just regular, so I decided to use Crisco instead. It worked great!

THEN, I thought, well why couldn't I grease an ice cube tray with Crisco, and make actual cubes?

I did it, and it worked, too! They popped right out of the tray, just like real ice.

They do have a yellowish tint to them. It isn't terrible, but I think I am going to try not cooking it so long next time.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!! ThisNameInUse this is great! I'm glad you are sharing your experience, it really helps to know how it works for others...I'm still at the beggining stage and all of this is 'first time' for me. Please show us your cake when you finish.

Yes!!! Put it in Tutorials...PLEASE icon_cry.gif ...I click print and mine also doesnt print the pictures...I "need" the pictures...Im visual...lol...so what did you use to make the ice? Candy??? Lost sorry...pics??? icon_lol.gif

My question is this for All CCers...when we sit and look at pics here, and we love them, we click save to favorites...how long before WE...start looking like we are a CC web page ourselves? Wonder how many we can save. They should give us files so we can break down our pics...so we dont have to sit and re watch them all when we need an idea...you know: This goes in weddings, this in Baby shower...etc...TELL THEM!!!! icon_razz.gif

Let me know when you put it in tutorials...Please

Your cake looks great and thanks for the tutorial.

I am going to see if I can make it work with food grade plastique. As someone mention before not sure if the Michaels' product is food safe.

The way I made the top was by making a carboard tray, covering it with foil, and then "glueing" the bottles to the foil with the poured sugar, so the bottles sit in a tray and never actually touch any part of the cake that is ate.

It worked perfectly because I was able to make a cut all along the bottom of the tray and lift it off, which allowed the birthday boy to take his tray and bottles home all in one piece.

Great work and awesome tuturial and pics!

When I make my bottles, I insert the mold into a sippy cup (the tall "playtex" ones work great) and use the cup to hold onto. That way, you don't burn your hands, and you can have a good grip on the mold to turn it as needed. I have never had mine mishaped; although, there is usually more sugar in the "neck" of the bottle than the rest of it.

I noticed the darker color in the neck, too....

I made a green bottle and wanted to make sure that didn't happen, so once I made sure the entire bottle was coated inside well, when the liquid started to "set" a tiny bit I let it run out the bottom of the mold. It REALLY helped with making the color more even throughout the bottle, and I think I'm going to do that with all of them from now on.

You're a genious!!! really...I love all your tips and advice, thank you, thank you, thank you!!
Quick question: how long do you think the bottles last? the reason I'm asking is because I'm dying to make them icon_biggrin.gif but...I don't have the need for them until 3-4 months icon_sad.gif
I've read/heard here that sugar is a preservative, but for how long...(?)
I'm sure no one would eat the bottles, but they'll go on a cake and I want to make sure.

I read somewhere on here that they last a very long time. I know it was one of the sugar bottle threads but I don't which one.
