A couple of you had asked so here it is....

First I stacked three 4" and one 3" cakes placed it onto the cake drum and inserted a dowel down the center of the cake into the cake drum below..I formed the bottle "neck" from RKT. I crumb coated the cake and let it set up in the fridge.

I then rolled out my fondant to about 1/4in thick dusted it with corn starch and lightly rolled it up...then I "wrapped" the cake and smoothed the fondant trimming off the extra with a sharp scissor.

I then air brushed the cake with brown airbrush color mixed with pearl sheen...I purposely left the front of the bottle lighter to give the illusion of light shining through.

While that was drying I made a Label from gray fondant which I dusted with silver highlighter powder. To make the Logo I printed out one to use as a template first I cut out the black background..then trimmed the logo...then I cut out the "white" outline...then trimmed the paper again..and finally I cut out the red logo..I used fondant....I applied the label..and just kind of eyeballed where to add the rest of the label detail (I made sure to have an actually bottle to work off of)

Once the airbrush paint was dry I "painted" the cake (around the label)with a very thin coat of piping gel to give it the glass shine look...

For the Cap I cut out the right sized circle and placed it over the top forming it around the neck..I then took a pair of tweezers and "pinched all around the cap for the ridges..

.finally for added realism I piped some pipping gel "sweat" beads and drops around the cakeicon_smile.gif I hope this helps...if you have any questions or something is not clear please feel free to pm me..Thanks,Andrea
