It's really easy to make your own mold. You can get a different version of silicone at Michaels for about 20 bucks and it'll make about 2 bottles. I've made 3 beer cakes and I actually prefer to use isomalt instead of sugar. It has a higher burn point and you don't have to bring it to a certain temperature. It does cost a little bit more though. Just let me know if you need help and I'd be happy to.

Trevie, can you let me know when you use the molds, do you cover the whole bottle or just half, and where can i find isomalt, i am in toronto, canada, so not sure, never seen this isomalt, let me know thanks,

Hi, I found isomalt on Amazon and I believe Country Kitchen Sweet Arts has it as well. When I make the molds, I cover about 2/3 of the bottle, not the whole thing. It's an optical illusion when you put the bottles on the cake they look like the whole bottle. HTH

Your welcome. Oh, and when you pour the sugar in the mold make the bottom part of the bottle shaped like a shovel so that you can insert it in the cake without too much damage to the cake.

Hi Trevie,

I am back again, i have been trying to get my hands on the amazing mold putty, but no luck here in toronto, canada, or any product like that, do you have any suggestions where else can i look for it, i have contacted Michaels as well and they do not carry that product, they do have i think the liquid, but not sure how easy that is to use, let me know if you can, thanks,

Hi Trevie, I have a quick question...how do you make the bottom of the bottle shaped like a shovel?? do you wait for the sugar to cool off and use your hands?? I'm trying to picture it in my mind icon_smile.gif
Ok, thank you, great thread!!!

When you pour the hot sugar in the mold it will usually look like a shovel at the bottom anyway, but you have to carefully (because it is way hot) let the sugar run down and tilt or roll the mold to get the sugar to the sides and towards the bottom. Does that make sense?

I've been wanting to do one of these cakes for a while now. Think I might be brave enough to try this summer. Thanks everyone for all the suggestions.
