Not sure, I am really new so probably not the best person to ask, maybe 8 hours.... I practiced the bottles for a week before...trying to get the coloring just right. I added brown food color but overcooking it actually browned it better. I used three 12 in rounds torted and stacked with supports between the second and third layer then rolled out the fondant and used the wood grain embossing on it and put it on the cake. I painted the fondant with brown food coloring and vodka. oh and the edible image for the labels and silver luster dust and vodka to paint the caps. When I made the molds I did it with the caps on so I would not have to make them separate but have seen it both ways. The last thing I did was the ice and put it around the top,The second cake like this I made did not take as long since I had done it before. Best of luck, it was really fun and everyone loved it.
