‘One of the hardest things about making a cake like this is trying to get it the perfect size. Once you’ve cut the cake and you’ve got to allow for ganache on the outside and then fondant as well,’ she said. 

Tigga said she ‘eyeballed’ the bottle shape and lid and used a printer with edible link to create the label. 

‘Using edible ink, it’s really tough to get an exact match and a lot of people said that was the main reason they could tell the difference,’ she explained.
