I've been asked to make a cake that looks like the cork of a wine bottle...exactly like the one in this picture. Does anyone know how to get that effect or how to make it look realistic? I'm trying to talk her into a wine bottle but she seems pretty set on the cork to keep with the wine-themed bridal shower. Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Ameeta

it's gotta be laying down like that? it would be cool standing up with the bottom tier foam then just start stacking up the 6 inchers -- whoo hoo hoo --


but you could get that texture by 'smoothing' some cold icing -- it would ribble (texture) up like that -- or mist the cake with water and sprinkle on some powdered sugar and try to smooth that-- i mean that's what many cakes look like before they get fully smoothed down anyhow--


looks a little cake spackley-- toba garrett mixes up cake crumbs and icing -- something like that would do it too


practice first of course

How big does it need to be? The thought that comes to mind for me is if you have a metal coffee can to bake your cake in it twice. Then lay the cakes end to end on their side. HTH

but for the record that's a cork cake -- the corkscrew is what screws down into the cork that you pull up on and that opens the bottle
