Hi, I'm brand-new to cakecentral.com. I have a request to create a cake in the shape of a wine bottle (laying down) that's big enough to feed 50-60 people. I know I'll cover it in dark green fondant. Do they sell green luster dust so I can get that shiny appearance (to look more like glass)? Any ideas on how to begin construction? I'm thinking of stacking 9" rounds, cut in half, on their flat ends side by side. Then using the inside of a heating core for the neck of the bottle. But I think that will still only give me about 36 servings. So, should I put the bottle on top of a sheet cake, and find some creative way to cover that? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!! Also, should I freeze the layers ahead of time so they're easier to cut?
