Wine Bottle in a Crate






Johnson's office is having an after hrs party at work tomorrow to celebrate Labour Day.So decided to make this cake.Its a Chocolate Rum Cake filled with Swiss Meringue Butter Cream.Hope they like it!! Initially I was planning 2 make the Crate out of Chocolate but as the weather was kinda warm the cake wudn't survive the heat so I changed my mind & used MMF instead.The bottle is covered in Fondant , filled with cake & colored with Edible Gel Color to give it the shine.I covered teh Crate in MMF & gave it a woodgrain effect, also accented it with tiny bunches of Grapes.All the Greens on the cake are made using Gumpaste .The Label on the bottle is hand painted & I also added a bunch of Grapes along with a slice of Cheese. Everything Except for the Foil is edible.
