Hi! I'm having the same questions you are. Honestly, I've been on the forums searching for over an hour for tips or anything helpful. My problem is that I'm working on a 3-d Patron bottle. Alot of the post said to wrap the fondant around your cake other than draping it down so that it would not tear....that's fine...but I don't like the idea of seams....
After going back and looking at pics that I saved I think I have found the method that some use....
My plan: stack my cakes, freeze, carve, make the neck and cork from RKT. Cover in BC. I'm going to drape my fondant over the bottle, but I'm going to do it in the bottle, do the neck separate, do the cork separate....put all together "glue" with Royal Icing...I plan to cover my gap between the neck and the bottle with the ribbon that comes with it.
I know I'm rambling, but I finally have a plan of action, and I'm
I don't know what kind of bottle that you are making, but maybe this can help...
BTW....What kind of bottle are you making?
