Igloo Cooler cake continues

More work on the Cooler Cake after dinner tonight. I thought I could get it wrapped in fondant between dinner and the gym in no time flat. Turns out, not so much. I guess I've never fondant covered a square cake and I didn't think it would be hard. It's a cube for goodness sake. Yeah, it was harder than I thought. The corners just sucked, the fondant kept cracking... You know what it looks like? Like elephant wrinkles. You know how they get those wrinkles around their ankles? That's what it looks like. :)
SO, I had to Crisco it up and spent a ridiculous amount of time working out the wrinkles and cracks. and made a giant mess... check it out....

Then I had to decide where the beer bottles would sit and if I should use 2, 3 or 4. I thought 3 looked best

Cut out 3 holes for the beer bottles to sit in (I used a round cookie cutter and it worked perfectly)

And covered the top and the holes with white fondant

can you see how SHINY the red looks? It's because of all the rubbing down I did to get the wrinkles out! Are coolers that shiny? yeah, didn't think so... Anyhow, I'm off to the gym, more later...
