Wine Bottle Cake

Do you sell this cake? Yes Name of website or online shop The End Dessert Company Link to website or online shop www.theenddessertcompany.com Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Lemon cake with Cabernet Blackberry buttercream covered with fondant and finished with a hand painted custom wine label What are you most proud of? This was a challenge for me because the cake was quite large (although you can't tell in the picture) and the fondant was dark colored and unforgiving. It also took over 2 hours just to hand paint the label for the wine. I wish I had taken a detailed picture! :) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Get a buddy to help you when putting fondant on a vertical cake. You can try to putting the cake on its side to roll it, but when the shape is abnormal having a partner to help is just much easier.

Q&A with Mrsgillespie

wendy2265768 asked:
Which crafty class did you take to learn the wine bottle?
Mrsgillespie answered:
It did not come from a Craftsy class. I just created it separately:) I can offer any tips you mind find useful. The label was painted freehand using petal dust and vodka.
