Here is beer glass I did - it may help.

This was 2 x 7" rounds, 1 x 6' inch round.

The 6 inch I sliced and used a thin layer for the bottom rim and the curved top for the top of the cake.

2 x 7' were tiered in the middle. I put stripes of rolled fondant around the outside of the cake before I covered it. I rolled the fondant around, trimmed it and made the seam where the handle was and smoothed it. With the ball tool I shaped the icing between the fondant pieces under neath to give it the 'glass' shape. The top was covered with royal icing but you could use butter cream. I pre made the handle well in advance with fondant and gum trag to ensure it dryed. I painted the fondant the 'beer' colour and then just rubbed my silver dust over it as accents to the shape of the glass and rims.

I covered the board in fondant and marked the lines to make it look like wood and then painted it with vodka and gel, the bowl I moulded from a small glass bowl I have and then just made the peanuts from fondant.

If you would like any other info, please don't hesitate to ask.

Best of luck,
LL
