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 icon_wink.gif

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.
