This was for a slide show party I hosted with friends from college and just thought that our favorite beer from the time was appropriate. I used a casserole dish as the pan and the shape was just perfect as it bowed a little on the sides.
The same shape can probably be achieved with 2 9in squares cut down. I used some piping to outline parts of the cake and then varied the size of the star tips for different parts. I used a star tip to write "Lone Star" to give it more heft (I'm a little low on supplies). I like details so I starred the small type and what should be the shape of Texas next to the mail label.
I used store-bought Wilton colors for the blue and red as I just couldn't get them on my own, and I really liked the vividness of each one. Overall, huge hit and just took a little internet research as this can is no longer in circulation.
This Corona bottle cake was made out of a simple box cake (whatever flavour). The icing was homemade with a simple butter and icing sugar recipe. The Corona beer bottle was shaped out of craft store bought gum paste. (Fondant will work also but gum paste can be purchased in smaller quantities).
The gum paste was then dyed with food color the desired shade and cut out in the shape of a bottle and smaller black pieces of gum paste were cut out to make the Corona crown and a bottle cap. The seashells were made using a chocolate mold that was purchased at a bulk store. Little meltable disks of chocolate (any desired color) were then melted and poured into the mold and left to harden in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
The sand is made of graham cracker crumbs. And the lime wedges are simple gummy candies that can be found in any bulk store. This cake was fun to make and everybody loved the design! Enjoy!
I began by cutting two of the same beer bottle shapes out of a single layer sheet cake. I then added a thin layer of icing and stacked one bottle on top of the other. At this point, I place the cake in the freezer until frozen. (It makes it easier to carve and ice.)
I then carved the shape of the bottle out of the top layer of cake with a serrated knife. I like to have a real beer bottle in front of me to assure I get the accurate shape. I iced the whole cake with brown icing. I prefer Wilton's whipped icing for all my decorating. Then I added the bottle cap and label icing details on top of the brown. At this point, I carefully moved the cakes to a foil-lined cardboard sheet.
I followed the same process on the beer cans, except for using different colored icing and shapes.

A friend needed a cake for her brother's 30th birthday. She wanted a corona bottle. We made the bottle separate from cake. It is the exact size of the bottle. My husband hand-painted all the details on to the bottle with food coloring.
I did the half sheet cake and decorated it with finely crushed graham crackers. I used a paint brush to put blue spots on the cake and then swiped it all the way across the cake to look like a blue sky with some strings of clouds.
The sea shells are made from gum paste.
The entire bottle can be taken off the cake and eaten separately, which is exactly what the guy did. there is also a fondant plane and sign going over the top that says happy birthday TJ.
