LOL! So funny!


OK..I just now found the tutorial section under articles... I think it is the right place.

Is there a tutorial on how to submit a tutorial, because I can't seem to figure it out! icon_redface.gif

Your cake looks great and thanks for the tutorial.

I am going to see if I can make it work with food grade plastique. As someone mention before not sure if the Michaels' product is food safe.

Thank you! icon_smile.gif


The way I made the top was by making a carboard tray, covering it with foil, and then "glueing" the bottles to the foil with the poured sugar, so the bottles sit in a tray and never actually touch any part of the cake that is ate.

It worked perfectly because I was able to make a cut all along the bottom of the tray and lift it off, which allowed the birthday boy to take his tray and bottles home all in one piece.

Great work and awesome tuturial and pics!

When I make my bottles, I insert the mold into a sippy cup (the tall "playtex" ones work great) and use the cup to hold onto. That way, you don't burn your hands, and you can have a good grip on the mold to turn it as needed. I have never had mine mishaped; although, there is usually more sugar in the "neck" of the bottle than the rest of it.

I noticed the darker color in the neck, too....

I made a green bottle and wanted to make sure that didn't happen, so once I made sure the entire bottle was coated inside well, when the liquid started to "set" a tiny bit I let it run out the bottom of the mold. It REALLY helped with making the color more even throughout the bottle, and I think I'm going to do that with all of them from now on.

You're a genious!!! really...I love all your tips and advice, thank you, thank you, thank you!!
Quick question: how long do you think the bottles last? the reason I'm asking is because I'm dying to make them icon_biggrin.gif but...I don't have the need for them until 3-4 months icon_sad.gif
I've read/heard here that sugar is a preservative, but for how long...(?)
I'm sure no one would eat the bottles, but they'll go on a cake and I want to make sure.

I read somewhere on here that they last a very long time. I know it was one of the sugar bottle threads but I don't which one.
