Italian Pasta Dinner Cake!

This cake was done for a school function. The themed dinner was Italian pasta and wine. The bottom tier is covered with a "table cloth" made of fondant to act as the table. Each red square was strategically placed, whew lol. The top tier is covered in white fondant. The Italian flag, pasta bowl, grapes, meatballs and sauce are made from fondant. The pasta in the bowl is actually piped buttercream icing! Now this was my first attempt at a wine bottle, and since I don't have the molds to make it, I rolled out gumpaste and layed it over a wine bottle, cut out half the shape, let it dry and repeated. I attached both pieces with a strip of fondant on the inside and used royal icing to glue the halves together. Then I sprayed it with edible spray, and edible lacquer for a sheen. I used foil paper for the top, and fondant and an edible marker for the label. Overall, I think it came out well for a first try. TFL :)
