Hi all,
I'm new here and is looking to make a cake that looks like a wine bottle in a crate. I have seen many picture of people doing this but don't know where the best place to start is...
Can anyone help with some ideas on how to get the bottle looking correct.
Thank u for all your help in advance

I just made one last weekend. The wine bottle was made out of rice krispies and covered in fondant. The "crate"was chocolate krispies, but was supposed to be brownies (Kitchen was too hot).

I would like to make the whole thing out of cake if its possible. My mom and I are looking to start a cake decorating business and we have a friend doing a wine a cheese event so we thought it would be a good idea to do a cake for the event. i was going to cover the whole thing in fondont, Im just looking for an idea on how to carve the cake

why carve?

make small rounds -- 4" or 6"

cut in half across diameter into half rounds

stand on edge

put as many side by side (icing in between) to get length needed for body of bottle

RKT for the shoulder and neck of bottle.

depending on size need, might even bake in a metal can (soup, etc)

then split into 2 half cylinders and lay end to end
