I have seen a growing number of cakes on cc which are beer bottles in a bucket of ice. Have I missed a tutorial on how to do this? Could anyone direct me please
Mine, in my photos, was an order for an actual working beer bucket. They wanted real beer and not sugar beer bottles, which is an option as well. But I havent really messed with sugar work just yet.
I cut a large circle out of the middle of a stack of large cake rounds, I think I used 14 inchers. And stuck a styrofoam bucket in the middle of the cakes (think like a strofoam fishing bucket, new and cleaned of course). And cut it so that the top of the bucket was flush with the top of the cake.
I covered the cake in white fondant and 'glued' the GP "wooden" panels to the sides. I added a rusty looking iron band with rivets to complete the look.
For inside the bucket, I used plastic ice cubes, real beer, and then hard rock candy to represent ice on top. The entire cake weighed almost 100 lbs, but the bachelor party guys loved it.
Thanks jayde, your cake looks wicked, but would like to know how to make the bottles and ice edible, do you or anyone else know how?
Here's a link to the huge thread about it:
