Does anyone have any ideas on how I can make a 3D baby bottle from fondant/gumpaste? Is there a template or anything out there? I made one with a toilet paper roll, but it looks kinda goofy. Any ideas would be super helpful! Thank you!!!
You can purchase a mold for a baby bottle. I just made one for a baby shower cake. I used fondant in the mold, but you could also use chocolate. I purchased mine online. I think I only paid a few dollars for it, and then of course a few more for shipping
I cut it in half to look like it's sticking out of the diaper bag but it looked just like a real baby bottle before I cut it. Sorry I didn't take a pic of it before cutting it and it's a little hard to see but here it is:
Someone else had a good idea to make one out of cake. I'll have to find the post where I saw it and put a link for you.
Here's the post from Coral3 that suggested using cake. I think I would have tried this if I didn't already make mine. It looks like a great idea.
Here it is. It'd make a great base for a cake baby bottle:
Debbief, thanks for the suggestion! Maybe i'll buy the mold. I'm making a baby shower cake (that looks like a diaper bag) for my sister and I wanted a bottle to sit in the pocket on the side. From what I can see from your pic it looks exactly like what I need. BTW, WHAT AN AMAZING CAKE!!!!! I just started really getting into cake decorating and I discovered that I'm quite good at it, but I am still awed and inspired by what some people can do!
Thanks orianaklump. That cake was a lot of fun to do. But I have to say, until I started putting the finishing touches on it, I hated it. I was so disapointed in the way it looked and kept thinking I was in way over my head. It's almost magical how it just came together after all the embellishments were added So in case that happens to you, just know it will all come together in the end.
Also if you do a search for "diaper bag" in the cake gallery, there's lots of them with the bottle in the side pocket to give you an idea of how it looks. I've seen a few with the same bottle I used. It's the 4" baby bottle mold.
Make sure you post pics when you're done! Have fun
Oh yeah, you're right there are some amazingly talented people on here. I've learned more than I ever imagined from all the CCr's here!
