Johnnie Walker Whiskey Bottle Cake
This Johnnie Walker whiskey bottle cake was first on the list. Made for a 36th birthday with the recipient obviously being a fan of this type of whiskey.
The cake was covered in teddy bear brown sugarpaste and to give it a glassy finish, it is painted with confectioners glaze which gives it the shiny effect. The biggest problem with this cake was the pesky black board covering. If anyone has ever used black sugarpaste you'll know what I mean...you end up with black everywhere. Normally when I make cakes I cover the board around the cake once it's in place but I ended up getting black on my whiskey bottle and it wasn't behaving, so I had to resort to covering the board completely before placing the bottle on top. The only problem with this, was rough edges around the bottle, so unfortunately I had to add a ribbon around the bottle which normally wouldn't be there but it doesn't look too bad.
