I know you can use isomalt to do something like that, probably with a mold. Ive never done it before but I have read alot about it.

Wait, your cake will be covered with fondant. You are not making a bottle with isomalt, right? You just want to make the indentations on your fondant-covered cake?

Just saying that you need to clarify a few things because people will show up with all kinds of the wrong suggestions if we don't know what you really want.

ur right imagenthatnj she did say cake. my fault I misread it. since your looking for a glass look its not a crazy suggestion however to do the bottle out of isomalt and place it on top of a cake made to look like a crate or something. Just a suggestion.

Oh, no. Ashleyssweetdesigns, I still don't know what she wants. I know she did say cake, but still not sure. Yours is a great suggestion, but I know for a fact that some people order a bottle made out of cake, standing sometimes.

She did say bottle cake so I think ur right. Ive seen bottle cakes but never standing, that sounds very nice.

That looks more like blown glass than crackle glass.

I'm just winging this, so try it on a sample piece of fondant before actually using.

Melt gelatin with distilled water, let it cool just enough to keep from melting the fondant, apply 1 smooth coat with a brush, let cool to create a base. Apply a second coat, then while still warm, blot with a fine-cell sponge (small holes) to create the effect.

Let me know if it works for you.

That sounds like a great technique would love to know how that turns out.
