for those of you who have done the sugar beer bottles, has anyone sucessfully put a real slice of lemon or lime inside? does it discolor, or cook or look nasty?
I can't answer your question. But I was thinking, would they even be able to see what it is inside the bottle? Just something for you to think about.
You can make a lime slice out of fondant and stick it into the bottle, you can see if from the outside and it looks really cute!
BTW - you put the lime slice into the bottle after it is all molded and cooled down, you do not put it in with the hot sugar. Put it in just before you put the bottles on the cake.
