Does anyone have a template that they wouldn't mind sharing for making the shapes of the spout and handle for a teapot cake? I'm making 4 small ones (using my small pampered chef batter bowl) and having a template to make 4 sets of handles & spouts would make things much easier on me! LOL

Also, would 50/50 gumpaste/fondant be best or would it be better to add tylose to the fondant (and how much would I add??). I think I've read that the gumpaste is lighter.

I made my spouts and handles freestyle by just working with it and shaping it the the mold, then laying it out to dry. I did find that gumpaste is lighter attaches better and dries faster, tho. I know its not much but hope it helps!

actually, that does help quite a bit. mgigglin, did you use just straight gumpaste or did you do 50/50 gumpaste/fondant mix?
