AI made a beer cake for my daughters father for Father's Day and it was a hit! That's to everybody that helped me with it. But now I wanted to do a wine bottle in a crate for my aunts birthday next week. But I'm not really a fondant person, everything has been buttercream for me. I was wondering if anybody had suggestions as to how to do the filler in the crate that the bottle sits on. Everywhere I look they just say shredded fondant. TIA :smile:
AI know you're not a fondant person (is it the flavour or you're worried about working with it?), but I used a pasta machine with the spaghetti cutter to cut fondant "straw" for a cake like this. It was very easy to do, very quick and effective. But if it's the taste of the fondant you don't like, then go with toasted coconut (you can easily colour it too if you need).
AI don't mind working with it, it was where I started but I just prefer the taste and texture of buttercream. If it comes down to it I'll just use it, was just hoping there was something I hadn't thought of. I didn't think about coconut, but I'll definitely try that!
