HI there, I took advice using a glaze for my wine bottle cake to use Corn Syrup (used Glucose as we don't have corn syrup) and Vodka. I have applied it to the bottle but it is not drying!!!! Help!!!!!
I was thinking to take it off and use egg white? Really need advice asap.
AI made a bottle cake not to long ago. The cake was the wine box and I had half a bottle made out of gum paste. I glaced it with homemade piping gel and it never dried but I didn't expect it to, because it gave the bottle a nice shine like real glass. So, why do you need it to dry? Sorry, maybe I misunderstand your question...?
Thanks. When I touch the bottle the black and glaze come off onto my hand I figure that this would not be suitable if you were doing a cake. But I hadn't thought that perhaps it is ok, considering buttercream will just as easy come off onto you hand if you touch it. Thanks for the knock on the head, I needed that.
ALol, that's funny :) Good luck with it!
AThe 50/50 mix of corn syrup and vodka will dry, from memory it took a few days last time I made a wine bottle, but that was in our winter in Australia.
