AHi: I need some advice on a cake. I was asked to make a cake in the shape of a grappa botega bottle (I tried to include a pic but was unable to from my iPad). She wants it 3D (stand up) and to feed 40 people. Any ideas, suggestions would be appreciated. This a link to a pic, not sure if it will work.

Thanks Dina

AWell, I'm thinking you will need to include dowels in your cake. This will make the cake stand up and not topple when your putting the bottle neck on the cake. It should be pretty easy to shape and stack the cake when your using dowels.

Please reply if this wasn't the answer you were looking for :P

AWhat do you need help with? The glass look? The cake itself? Stacking it? As for serving forty people I have no idea how many it will serve sorry. I saw a tutorial once for a 3d standing bottle cake. Different shape bottle but will give you an idea if you want me to look for it
