And now I must circle back to finish up the Wine Party I did for my mom's surprise 60th birthday party. I wanted to do a fun cake for her and saw this Wine Glass Cake on Cake Central. My friend April and I made this cake and I must say it turned out pretty darn cute! I Made a large rectangle cake and then we cut, frosted and put fondant on. It always helps to have an extra set of hands plus someone to talk you through always helps.
What you need:
Cake (I used the Sparkling Wine Cake Recipe)
Buttercream Frosting (I used my go to Sturdy Buttercream)
Fondant (I used Rolled Buttercream Fondant)
Modeling Chocolate (For decorations if Wanted)
Food Coloring (I used Burgundy Americolor Soft Gel Paste - For the Fondant)
I bake a cake a large rectangle cake (make sure to use cake release it helps taking cakes out of pans. I made a template by blowing up a wine glass (that I googled) or you can do it by eyeball. Once you have the cake cut out you need to crumb coat/dirty ice (lightly cover the cake in frosting). Roll out your fondant and cover the cake, since we were adding the wine colored fondant we did the white fondant in 2 sections (the seam would be covered by the burgundy color). Rolled out almost a half moon shape for the wine part. I added some modeling chocolate I put into a flower and leaf mold to add a little something. For the 60 I took a circle cutter and formed the 60 by hand.
Cake Release or Cake Pan Coating (Hobby Lobby version)
Is the key secret I've learned to get a cake out easy!
