I'm trying to figure out how to do this beer bottle cake for 15-20 people

It says it has six 6in cakes for the bottle and cupcakes for the neck but how do we assemble it?

And two 6in cakes serve 24 people, so how would I put this together?

Or should I carve from two 9x13 cakes? TIA!!

I think it means 6 single layers and each one is a 6" cake cut in half. That makes the big part of the bottle about 12" long and 6" across.

The neck would then just be about 3 regular 2-1/2" diameter cupcakes stuck together one on top of the next, with lots of icing to fill in the shape.

I don't think that carving would be so much fun.

For the label: use google "budweiser" to get the company's website. Right click on the image and save it as a jpg file to print out onto a sugar sheet.

Thanks BakingIrene... so I would make semi-circles of the 6in cakes and place the rounded edges towards the outside?

Will I get the height needed to make it look rounded with single layer cakes?

Or will I have to fill and stack, making it 12 single layers?

The picture looks like the 6" cakes were cut exactly in half to make half circles that are 2" deep. The flat sides all go onto the board, you can see how the bottom of the bottle makes a half circle at the board.

I would lightly ice each flat side to stick it down onto the board. I would use 1/4" of icing between each half circle. No need for dowels or other supports. No other cutting or carving of the 6" half circles.

THANK YOUUU!!! Got it now icon_biggrin.gif But six 6in cakes would serve about 30 people right?

Any ideas on reducing the servings without compromising on the look?

Sorry my math says THREE 6" cakes cut into 6 half circles. Plus cupcakes. Just about what you said you needed. I think the info with the cake picture is off.
