Sorry...clicked on the link - "page not found"
if it helps any when I think of a Jack bottle - I'd use black, probably some copper and white for the lettering- HTH

I colored the fondant that color, and used cake for all of it except the cap part, that is RKT. Here is my method of building it:

Glaze it with piping gel. That's my friend's bottle from two days ago. You might want to PM her since I haven't asked her how she did it yet.

It's white fondant colored with piping gel.

I froze the cake - then carved the neck. Actually it wasn't totally frozen, but partially frozen. It's much easier to carve when it partially frozen, especially when it is a smaller piece. HTH icon_biggrin.gif
