here's two sites w/ pics for a bottle that stands up.

really very simple.

for one on it's side -- it's just a series of 1/2 rounds (round cake cut in half) and stood on edge -- for neck could even bake in soup cans and then split in half.

grease them up just like a regular pan.

stand upright

bake as per normal (I do 325)

test for done (would need a kabob skewer to reach far enough)

cool

then I'd take a can opener and cut out the bottom so I could just push it out like a one of those push-up ice cream pops.
