Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I made this cake as a donation for the Fort Bend Literacy Council's annual fundraiser gala "Reading Between the Wines." I used gumpaste for the wine bottle and the wine goblet...used royal icing to seal the 2 halves of the bottle and wine. I used modeling chocolate for the pouring wine. I used fondant for the plate of cheese & grapes as well as the book binding/cover. The book itself was the actual cake (requirement was to feed 8-10ppl). Hope you like it!!

Hi Tanya, such a beautiful creation. Did you put modeling chocolate in the gumpaste wine bottle to hold it up?
