Made this cake for my husband's 40th birthday. The beer bottle in the front actually spun around. All edible except the labels and the caps. Four layers of alternating chocolate and vanilla pound with buttercream filling. If you want to know how to make the sugar beer bottles and ice, there is an awesome tutorial on "You tube". Just type in "how to make a sugar beer bottle mold" to learn how to make a bottle mold. On that video she says that she used 15 coats....trust me...use the entire container. This is easier than you think. Start a week in advance though. Type in "how to make a sugar beer bottle" to see her actually use the mold to make the bottles. Thanks for looking!
