Landshark Cake

My friend asked me to help her make a cake for her boyfriend's birthday.  Since his favorite beer is Landshark, we decided to try to make him a cake shaped like a landshark bottle.  It was my first time making a cake where I needed to cut out the shape and fondant it.  I think it came out great!  The only problem I had was the fondant cracking and I think this was from using corn starch with the fondant instead of powder sugar.   Also make sure to have Crisco nearby to keep on your hands when kneading the fondant.  The cake as decorated using Wilton's icing writers.
