50Th Birthday Treat

Got this idea from jamjentyler (Thanks so much!!). Hated to duplicate so closely but the customer was turning 50 and her one request was that the cake say "Aged to Perfection" . My thoughts immediately went to wine. The bottle is made out of fondant that I rolled out thin & molded over a wine bottle and let dry. Label I made up and printed off the computer. Grapes are also made from fondant.

I let it sit overnight (longer would have been better) and then slid the bottle out. --I left the foil attached to the fondant. I then balled up some more foil and put it inside of it to help retain the shape. Then I accented the top with a lighter c

to finish the directions ... I accented the top with a lighter colored, attached a bottom and the sent the whole thing (foil & all) on top of the cake) :D

This is a perfect idea for my sister, who turns 50 next year and loves wine! Mind if I copy it (of course won't look as perfect as this)?
