i know this question was probably asked before, but i don't have time to read thru all the posts right now.
i want to make a bottle out of cake, not rice crispies.
Actually, I don't remember this question being asked previously.
When I did my Captain Morgan cake, I just stacked 3 layers from a sheet cake, with boards and dowels, then carved the bottle. The neck was done with a cookie cutter and some skewers.
I just did a patron bottle cake last week, and I searched for a tutorial and there was nothing I could find so just had to wing it. My advice is just make some cakes, stack them up, make sure you put cake boards between every two layers for serving unless you dont want it cut up that way, then just start carving. I did end up with the neck and cork being RKT, but it could have been done with cake, but when you are carving only do a little at a time because you can always take more off but putting it back on is kinda hard. Good luck!
This was very helpful. i didn't even think to put boards in between the layers! duh! lol i'm goin to get started soon.
Happy birthday!! it's mine too
I didnt think of it either... lol. I actually didnt put them in... just let a bunch of drunk ppl carve into a cake! Funniest thing EVER!!!! Happy Birthday you two!!
