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.

shortnsweet - funny you said that - the woman I made it for didn't want to cut the cake and by the time she did almost all the guest have left. In fact, someone called me at midnight to ask how they could preserve the bottle!! (Yes, they were friends of mine but still-midnight???!!!)

This is great! Beautiful job! You say you put fondant over a wine bottle & let it harden? So, is it hollow? Thanks, in advance. :wink: :roll:

To overed a wine bottle in Reynolds Non-stick foil and then laid it on its side (I put it on a slightly flattened paper towel cardboard core which kept it from rolling) covered 2/3 of the fat part of the bottle and all of the stem part and left the bottom open. 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

Sorry about previous message - I tried to copy in a reply I had already sent to someone and it got a bit messed up! Since I had a few questions on how I made this I thought I post it for you. (Though I don't know if I should be telling my secrets!! ...lol..)

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
