Mother’s Day tea parties are a popular tradition, and naturally tea-inspired treats are the best desserts to serve! We’ve collected some of the best cake, cupcakes and cookies to help you plan the perfect Mother’s Day surprise.
I finally had the opportunity to make my first topsy turvy cake. Such fun! 12″, 9″, 6″ tiers with RKT teapot on top. Gumpaste Elmo and Abby Cadabby.
So, what kind of cake do you make for someone who is a Twilight fanatic, and decides to have a formal tea party for their 40th birthday? That’s what my friend challenged us with. Well, after a lot of thought, I think we came up with the perfect combination to appease both the classical and darker sides of Joy.Happy Birthday Joy, this cake, like you is one of a kind…or is it two…. The Teapot is styrofoam, wall and base are wood, everything else is fondant, modeling chocolate, and cake.
My last creation for the italian magazine Cucina Chic Cake Design, n.6 (aprile)

I carved the Teapot Cottage from rice kripsy treats and covered it with fondant. All the details are fondant as well. My flowers are all made from gumpaste. The only non-edible is Tinkerbell herself.

Teapot Rose Cake done for a fun tea party photoshoot! It took me about three days to make everything (MMF, drying the spout and handle, cake, buttercream, etc.).On the spout and handle are brown… stems(?). Well….. squiggly stuff as I like to call it! lol. I will post better pictures of the cake once the photos are available! The last petal to the left had a tear, so I was sad. Actually I’m still sad. :”(
I made this cake just to see if I could do it. It is a yellow butter cake with Easy Marshmallow Fondant and Pettinice for the leaves and handle and Amaretto Buttercream filling. I wanted more cups, but I forgot to make the lid handle and had to use a cup foot for that.
This is the cake that i created in the Balance Cake Class with Kaysie Lackie……take the class as it awesome!!!!
I wasn’t very happy with how this cake turned out. Everything is edible, and the flowers and butterflies are hand made.

How lovely this teapot cake will look at the garden tea party! The “teapot” is made of cake and has sugar flowers bursting out of it’s top. The lid sits beside it along with a stray sugar daisy. The teapot sits atop a “table” made of red velvet cake. Two little sugar lady bugs are visiting this sweet garden setting.

I am SO glad that you can see the tea set, tree, and picket fence all in this picture!! The new “terms” are a little scary! Well, here is the back and probably my favorite side of this cake! The picket fence was worth every minute of frustration that the silver balls gave me! I was so afraid the judges wouldn’t see it! And the little tea set was SO much fun!! =) … Fondant and gumpaste
Today I’ve made this tea set. The teapot is a cake, the cup and dish are made with only fondant.
I make this tea set from fondant,nice to make
This is the final pic of the series of tea party / baby shower. Bottom tier was chocolate cake with hazelnut cream; top was white with rose-petal cream. Tea Pot and Cup were chocolate, the baby was GP, the rest was fondant. It was a lot of fun to make. The party was incredible with everything very well coodinated. My friend (the Momma), loved the cake!
Everything is edible. Bottom cake is made of 2 8″ rounds and a 7″ round in the middle to give it a tapered shape. Tea pot cake is made from the Wilton ball pan mold. The tea cups are all gum paste that I molded in a martini glass. The letters are funky letter tapits. The roses, tulips, leaves and baby’s breath are all gum paste. Buttons and fabric doilies are all gum paste as well.
This is a cake I made for my first book. As I am almost ready with my second book I thought It would be nice to share some of the cakes from the first book.
I made this as a practice cake for an upcoming wedding cake (my first), and it doubled as a Mother’s day gift for my Mom. I’m so in love with yellow now. =)

I had a bride get married and she wanted a small cake for her mother’s birthday that was on her wedding day. I iced this in buttercream and then stenciled the pattern on with dust.
I love simple cakes….and this one with a rough butter cream finish just breaths life into the gumpaste flowers. The Cake: top and bottom tiers both had 4 Ombre shades of pink butter cake layered and iced with French vanilla Swiss butter cream. Handmade gumpaste peonies, leaves and berries.
This was done for a friend who was throwing a tea party for a little girl in her family. Everything on the cake is edible and was handmade. This tea party was over the top. If you think the cake is good, you should check out the decorations she made. More pics are on my wesite: www.southerncottagecakery.com
This started out to be a very basic and simple birthday cake and grew to become one of my best creations at the time. Covered with fondant. Spout and handle made of sugar paste. I have an antique teapot with the rose design so I hand painted the cake with the same design.

Tea pot, cups, cream and sugar for a 5 year old’s birthday. My second attempt at a tea set and I love to do them.
The question I get the most about this is, How small is that?The tea pot sits on top of a standard size cupcake.
The brief was a birthday cake for a lady having a (70th) ‘Seven-Tea’ party, complete with 1940′s vintage tea ware…..well, when I suggested a 1940′s Tea Pot cake, that was met with a welcome reception………..however, I was told that the recipients favourite colours were hot pink and black….not exactly conducive to a chintzy teapot, so after much head scratching, i came up with a pretty good comprimise, a replica of a genuine 1940′s JAPANESE Teapot, the design was originally in blue so I replaced the blue with pink, and voila…………..
This was a teapot cake decorating class with Ruthy in Ft. Lauderdale. I had to leave the class early and finish the rest at home. I’m not sure if I did her justice because she is an amazing cake decorator. It’s a cake dummy covered in fondant with fondant accents. Thanks for looking.
2 Tier cake, garden theme on base tier Tinkerbell’s tea pot house on top tier-all cake except for tree which was PVC tube covered in sugarpaste.
My mom hand painted the tea pot and we got the cupcake idea from here. Thanks CC!
These are for her Tea Party tomorrow for her Birthday. Boy am I glad they werent for a Bride or I would have been crying! These little buggers are difficult to do!!!! I made up some whimsical decorations about a week ago in spring green and bright pink and stuck them on, along with some silver dusted hearts I had made also. The bottom is suppose to look like a tea pot, and I dont know what the top is as I just winged it! As long as she likes them, but I pity the Bride who comes looking for a price quote!HA

Fun cake made for a sweet little birthday girl. Her mom wanted the theme to be Secret Garden Tea Party and then left it up to me. This is what I came up with. My first time making a sugar teacup. SO MUCH fun! Learned a lot and excited to give it a go again in the future. Thanks for looking.
Teacup, saucer, doily and roses are all gum paste. Cake is 100% edible.
this teapot is based on my friend’s real teapot. It posed lots of challenges but i think she will be happy.
