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!
