I used gray fondant to cover the cakes and then cut a whole in the top for the bottles and ice, then painted it with silver dust and a little vodka.

so after you cut the mold and pour the sugar in, as I am reading, you only do one side of the bottle at a time?

so you will have a seam down the sides?

If you make the mold all in one piece, you won't have a seam; you fill it from the opening at the bottom of the bottle, and rotate the mold as you pour, coating all sides, but not filling the entire mold, just 1/4" perhaps.. Start from page 1 of this thread, and see how SweetResults explained it.. She did it beautifully... icon_biggrin.gif

Hopefully, better than I did mine... icon_lol.gif It's that last detail, when you are in a hurry, and sugar level has dropped, that you get sloppy... icon_sad.gif ok, just cut out a circle of fondant and place it on top of the bottle, and use the side of a toothpick to make indents along the edge.. paint it with silver luster dust and everclear...
