How creative is this champagne bottle cake submitted by Mae-Lan! It’s just fabulous. You could try recreating this cake or try one of the other fun cake ideas I came up with after seeing this awesome cake.
Instead of creating the champagne bottle on top of the cake, another wonderful idea is to bake a large sheet cake and then cut it to make it look like a champagne bottle. Then, you could use icing to decorate the cake so it would have the details and look like an actual bottle of champagne. To make your cake look even more interesting, make a few cupcakes and decorate them in a pale champagne colored icing. Place them at the tip of the champagne bottle so it looks like champagne is coming out of the bottle. Then, you can serve the cake and the cupcakes to guests.
If you don’t think you can cut out your own champagne bottle shape from a cake, consider finding a cake pan that is shaped like that kind of a bottle. Most cake pans will also come with decorating instructions to help you create a beautiful cake without doing a lot of work.
When decorating the actual champagne bottles, consider using the name of the party’s guest of honor instead of an actual champagne name. You can even add the birthdate of the individual to the bottle instead of the year the champagne was made. Use your imagination to create unique additions to the champagne bottle cake you make. This will make the cake even more special. Guests are sure to be impressed with your cake, no matter which of these lovely ideas you decide to use.
