Birthday wine cake

Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake This cake was made using the same techniques taught in Amber McKenney's class 'The Perfect Finish' except the wine bottle is hollow and made of gum paste and I used piping jell to glaze the bottle. The board is timber grain look fondant, I used an impression mat for the sides of the box and I painted with mixed petal dust instead of airbrushing.

Nice job!

Thank you.
Garden Baker asked:
Fantastic job! I didn't take this class because when asked Amber gave the impression that an airbrush was really necessary to get decent effects. But your work is so well done without an airbrush that I am rethinking that now.
deborahmu5059418 answered:
There are so many other tecniques that Amber teaches that make the class worth getting, I do have an air brush, but I'm still learning and I didn't want to ruin the cake, I was rather proud of the figs though those and the grape leaves were the only things I air brushed.

Hi Deborah.. I love your creation!! It looks amazing. I was wondering if you grated candy bar to create like wood sprinkle around the wine bottle. It looked like real. Thanks
