One Of A Kind Coke Bottle Cake
Not everyone will appreciate this beautiful One Of A Kind Coke Bottle Cake. You gotta hand it to Cookies, Cupcakes, and Cardio. This cake is very creative and really after watching the instructions……it’s not that hard. You could use buttercream frosting that’s store brought to save some time. Kids and grandkids would love this. You would be Momma/Grandma Of The Year with this cake!
There were several comments about the cake having too much buttercream. I agree. I would definitely place more cake into the chocolate bottle even if I had to squish it. Some thought the white inside was vanilla cake.
Other people made several suggestions on how they would make this cake. Like for instance, cut the chocolate bottle in half and then add the cake and frosting. All you would have to do is connect the 2 halves with melted chocolate & cover with the label. In the video, she recommended an X-Acto knife which is very sharp. I wouldn’t let my kids pick it up. You’d end up at the emergency room with stitches.
