Need decoration information

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone!
I've been asked by my coworkers to bake a Heineken bottle cake for a fellow coworker. I'm not having problems with the shape, it's the frosting and such that I'd need to use to have it resemble a Heineken bottle. Can someone help me on what to use and how to use it? Possible tools I might need, etc.
Any help/tips would be greatly appreciated. :D

I would use rolled fondant, for a smooth finish.

This is seeming like it's going to be A LOT harder than I had anticipated. :(
BTW, thanks for the replies. :D

how about.....

use rice crispy treat in the shape of the bottle, smooth with butter cream and cover with fondant (you can also just use the butter cream)

this would be great on the top of the cake, say shape the cake in a bucket full of ice and beers?

send in a picture!
bake first, ask questions later.
Oooh food, my favorite!

Try and see if you can get hold of "the icing on the cake" book by ROBINSON &SCHOFIELD. theres a simular bottle in the book and you will get some helpful tips and i visual idea of how to do it.
Good luck.
