I have a customer who wants a crown royal liquor bottle,
Here are my questions:
What do I use to get the amber color?
Would you recommend fondant or buttercream to cover the cake?
And what type of pan do you use to get the shape?
And last, What do you use to get the "shine" color on the bottle.
Any suggestions and help is greatly appreciated.
I made a crown royal cake recently. It is not as good as some of the others on this site but everyone thought that it looked really good. I have only been decorating for a short while. I made a 9x13 cake and cut out the bottle shape. I used chocolate buttercream. I made the label out of fondant as well as the bag. Its in my photos, not sure how to add a pic. [/img]
Your bottle looks great, excellent job!
What did you use for the top? with the gold colors?
The lady that has requested the cake wants it to be exactly like the bottle...
should be interesting making that, its just any hints and tips would be great.
I recently made one. It was standing up, just like a real bottle. I used oval shaped pan (2 sizes) &stacked them. For the top of the bottle I carved a cupcake. I staked the larger oval layers on top of the smaller, then carved. I mixed lots of gold, and some yellow to get correct color. Used buttercream icing. For the sack, I used purple colored fondant. Everyone loved it.
I tinted my fondant a light yellow and then painted it with gold luster dust.
I would use peach and brown to make the color. You could make a template out of a cake board and then put it on top of the cake to carve the shape. You can make the fondant look shiny but rubbing or painting on some shortening. Hope this helps
thanks to everyone for your great suggestions,
I will let you know how it turns out( its for this Monday)
