AAmateur cake decorator here, making a cake for a friend. Has anyone done one like this before? Any tips? Specifically need ideas of how to make something resembling ice in the bucket. Read something somewhere about poured sugar but not too sure where to go with that!
All suggestions welcome and would also love to see pictures of one that you have made before!

I did a wedding/new year's eve cake w/ the same design. I found small acrylic cubes at the local craft shop. Looked just like ice cubes in the bucket. Attached is the picture. The bride and groom were also moving to Texas and wanted the part of the cake too.
hi Gurvy I live in Ireland and have done 1 of these cakes,dont know where you are from but here we have a sweet called foxs glacier mints,they look like an ice cube and i bought couple of bags for my cake,maybe you have something like that were you live.hth
AThanks bct806, brilliant link!
Can't actually open your picture satjoy1 but thanks both of you for the suggestions! I'll be sure to look into them :)
Good Luck! And don't forget to post a picture!
The hebrew letters says L'chayim and the letters written in red have the numerical value of 18, the age of the birthday girl. Used fox's sweets in the end but used a real beer bottle as I ended up burning myself making the sugar one :P Thank you for your help! What do you think?
gurvy01 - cake looks great - how did you get the dimples on the cake?
Aa textured mat - probably one the best things I ever bought and you can get so many different ones pretty cheap :)
Use rock candy for the ice.
