I love doing fun unconventional cakes. I was asked to do this bachelor party cake a while ago I and I wasn't worried since I have done other alcoholic bottles so this one I wanted to do a little different. In the past I have printed out the label on rice paper, but Crown Royal has a very simple label so I decided to make it out of fondant. I shaped the cake using a regular kitchen knife; crumb coated it and covered in fondant. I added a white piece of fondant for the label and added the purple curtains and the purple velvet bag that Crown Royal comes with. I had to remake the pillow shape several time cause it just didn't look right, finally I got it write and topped it off with a 3/4 circle. I then added the small ribbons of yellow for the crown and detailed using a flat round fondant tool. I rolled out more yellow fondant into ropes for the pillow, the label, curtain, and the bag details. The last thing I did was instead of piping Crown Royal I rolled out a think rope of black fondant and carefully spelled out the name. While I was making this totally awesome cake, Jack was outside installing our new garage door light. We always thought the house looked off balanced since we only had one light on the side of garage door and our courtyard gate so we decided to add light to the other side. We got off lucky since the previous owners had a flood light there that just didn't work, but Jack did have to rewire the light before installing the new fixture. All and all today was a productive day for both of us!
