Is it standing up or laying flat?

If you can find a wilton baby bottle shaped pan you can alter it to make the hennessy.

I was going to try standing up, I was thinking of stacking either 6" or 8" cakes and try to form rice krispies as the neck and top but I didn't know how to go about covering it with fondant and ding the labels might be tricky =\\ I'd love any advice please!!!

You should check out some youtube tutorials on how to cover your cake with fondant. As far as applying the labels you can just print out the bottles labels and take them to the grocery store and have them print out the labels on edible paper.

Thanks everyone, yes I've worked with fondant just not a 3d bottle and doing the neck is what I was curious about, I was going to ask the grocery about the label printing, hopefully they can. Thanks so much for the help. Can't wait to try it!

I used 8 and 6 inch cakes and carved these into a bottle shape, ensuring a dowel went through the middle.

I used modelling chocolate to cover it with and handpainted the labels, but you could print it out of edible paper, hope this helps

Well rkt should work out fine for the neck & base. I'm not sure you would go about adding the fondant. Post pictures to my email [email protected]
I am going to be making a grey goose bottle and I am also curious how to work with the fondant.
