sugar bottle video - Page 3

post #31 of 76
mackeymom, The first mold I made I used 12 layers and it came out great and I am still using it. I have been making a new mold and already have 12 layers on it and it still doesn't look as thick as the first. I can still see the Corona label easily on the bottle as each layer dries. So I got my first mold and put it up to another Corona bottle to see if I could see the label easily and I could, so I guess I could take the mold off, but you know what? I'm going to put a few more layers on instead, just to be safe rather than sorry. This is actually my third mold because I took my 2nd mold off before it was thick enough and also it didn't seem to be completely dried underneath. When I took it off it completely wrinkled up "like a frightened turtle", if you catch my drift. Here is a picture of the mold I am doing right now and I am not sure it's thick enough yet. Okay, well CC keeps sending errors when I try to load my picture so I can't attach it. sorry.

Thanks Steve! The video tutorial showed (what looked like) a super thick mold! And I've used about half of my mold builder and I can still see the bottle. So I was worried I wasn't putting the latex on thick enough.

Has any tried this with clay? I saw it at the store and was wondering who hard that method would be.

Thank you Steve for sharing your experience in making the mold. I haven't gotten around to make one, but I will soon and I will also report in this thread.

BTW Steve, the pics from your previous message are gone...or, I can't see them.

Thanks Rosie, you're righ, instead of the pictures I just see and "x", but if you click on the "x" it should open the picures in another window. CC seems to be having trouble with pictures on their site lately. At least with my pictures. Actually, I'm not sure if it's the site or my Norton Internet Security that's creating the problem. I keep getting error messages from CC when I try to post a picture. icon_cry.gif

Ahhhh you're right, thank you. I guess it's a CC glitch because I noticed that some of my pics also show an x now...

Thanks Kayla, I just got an order today for this Saturday. I can't wait to try my new half bottle mold. I was going to attach a photo of my new half mold (really it's about 3/4 size) but I guess I can't add photos to the forum anymore. You are the best Kayla for making the videos. Everybody who asks how to make the bottles I send them to your videos. It's too bad you can't get paid everytime they watch them. Good health and success, Steve

Thank you so much for your video. I can't wait to try it. Have you ever made a wine bottle mold? on another note; if you make yourself a bean bag (fill it w/flax seed, it won't go bad) when you don't have a helper, use it on a box to hold your video camera. keep up the great work and thanks again.

Steve, I made the martini mold! I used the plastice ones and just did the base separately. I had to turn the glass upside down to do the mold because as you said you can't pull the stem over the top of the glass. It worked! But I have only filled the stem of the glass and I ran out of sugar so I need to play with it some more, the bottom turned out great but I need to figure a way to attach the bottom to the base, very tricky. The glass with the stem could just be stuck into the cake maybe????

I plan to do a half wine bottle since I do so many wine crate cakes. I will be starting that today, has anyone done a half bottle, with that I mean on the side, not like what steve showed us??? Do you think it will collapse?

I'll play more with the martini glass and get back to you all!

here is my finished beer bottle cake I did last week, thanks again to Kayla for all her wonderful help!

Ginger, thank you so much for sharing with us. It's people like you and Kayla that make Cake Central so great.

I was watching Amazing Wedding Cakes just last night and one of the girls love to work with sugar art. In order to attach pieces of sugar art to another she uses a heat source to soften the end of the part she want to connect. For the martini glass I would probably heat either the center of the base where the stem will connect to or even better heat the end of the stem itself, of course being careful not to misshape the piece by overheating it. It looks like a quick touch from a fireplace lighter and then placing it immediately to the base would work. Good Luck Ginger and let us know how it works.

I had a hard time understanding what you meant about a half wine bottle, but after reading it a few times I think I understand that you are wondering if the cake mold itself will collapse, is that correct? There is a product I saw online called Amazing Mold Putty which creates a nice thick mold that won't collapse, my only concern is it's very pricey. $58 for 3 lbs. Amazing Mold Putty has their own website by that name that you can check out. I think I would rather use the Mold Builder that we use for the beer bottles and make a clay support to keep it from collapsing.

Cake Central seems to be having a lot of server issues, so they are not allowing us to post pictures when replying in the forums anymore. I think they have just outgrown their server.

Your cakes are the bomb Ginger. Please keep us posted

Great idea on the heating of the sugar to attach the martini top to the bottom, gonna try it soon and will get back to everyone!!

Actually on the half wine bottle I was talking about doing the mold builder and then putting the sugar in there just like the beer bottle, my concern was that since the wine bottles are so large the mold will be extremely flimsey and may collapse while I'm pouring the sugar but the clay mold stuff should work okay and I plan to try it at some point, right now I just mold the fondant/gumpaste blend on the bottle and let it dry and then decorate it. But the "glass" look would me SO much better!!!!!

Thanks for all the info, I'll be in touch!
