My friend ( a paying customer) would like a 50th birthday cake, round, with a wine bottle on it that says "Vintage 1963" and 2 wine glasses on the sides with Happy birthday on the cake. I have no idea what to do with this to not make it look like a grocery store cake. She wants buttercream, white, not fondant., for 30+ guests.
I've scoured the internet and found nothing attractive that would inspire me towards any design adaptation either.
All I can come up with right now is:
#1- suggest 2 tiers,which I'm sure she won't have a problem with.
#2- Perhaps do a cut out fondant or chocolate wine bottle and prop it up against the 2nd tier, wine glasses somewhere, and then maybe some cascading flowers? The party is in the lounge at the Ritz.
Needs to be special and classy. Ugh.
#3- drawing them on with buttercream- just like a grocery store cake.
#4- Suggest a different design. :)
