where can you find the products to make the mold beside online? do they sell anything to make this at a craft store like Joann's? Someone is asking me for this design at very short notice. Trying to see if I can make the mold in time without ordering online. Thank you in advance icon_smile.gif

I used this video to make my mold and it came out great, I bought the liquid silicone at Michael's.




Please see my beer bucket cake.

No, I used corn syrup and regular sugar (1 cup of sugar and one cup of corn syrup). To me it works perfect and it is cheaper.

Thanks for the afordable tips! Would anybody suggest using 1 cup equal sugar and corn syrup for a wine bottle that's bigger than beer bottle? Wondering how much. Would it be possible to mold half the bottle then bring the two together for a full bottle with bottom? I would like to make my wine bottle suspened over the cake. Thanks ope for ideas.

Ok, so I decided to give this a try because I really need sugar bottles however in the video the female states she use 15 plus coats. Her bottles are nice and thick. I am up to 24 coats on the 3 bottles I'm making and I can still see thru them. I started off with thin layers am I suppose to apply thicker coats now? I've been coating for 2 days now. Thanks

Lol ok thanks, I was second guessing. I live on Maui so it's very hard finding any craft items. I lucked up and found mold builder for $25!!!!!!! Yes very high because of island living. Ugh! icon_sad.gif thinking about ordering some from amazon but my shipping will still be high. Oh well
