I have someone asking for a single Champagne glass - I have decided to do it laying down as a cross section of the glass
basically a two layer half sheet as the goblet and maybe a strip of cake as the base and a dowel as the stem
I am going to reluctantly cover this thing in fondant - I typically use buttercream since I hate the taste of fondant and therefore I am not great at it and then I was planning on using dust to gain the right coloring of a glass.
My question is - anyone have some advice for me.
tell me if you have done this before and can I see pics if you have them
as I look through the pics I get glimpses but nothing exact
thanks everyone!!!!!

Have you thought of making a cake with a champagne glass on top. You can make the glas sout of chocolate, fill it half full, and put some fun stuff in it. If you do a search on champagne glasses, you will find several cakes that have used this. The chocolate molds are really cheap, like
$3. for a 3D mold.

I thought of that but they are asking for the company logo on the cake and want a carved custom cake
I am just a bit nervous to be covering the whole thing in fondant and using dust I just dont do it that often

does everyone think my plan to go at it is a good one?

Do you need a flûte or a coupe?
