I will be doing a cake in a few weeks for my children's preschool teacher luncheon. I'm going to do a teapot cake on top of a 10X13 cut corner rectangle as a table.

I've done a practice teapot cake before, but I just used BC as a filling and didn't do any torting.

I'm wondering if I should torte the teapot cake and use either raspberry or strawberry filling (I'm planning on a WASC right now) or will this cause a structural problem?

Also, would you torte and fill the 10x13 as well?

I really want this cake to be a big hit! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Hi there!

I love doing teapot cakes...I found that when I did just the lemon curd filling no buttercream it was a little bit slippery. The next one I went ahead and mixed the raspberry with the buttercream to get a flavored buttercream and that held up and was sturdy and didnt slide. If your going to stack it I would treat it like a stacked cake and either put it on a board or plate, whatever stacking method you use. Good luck and have fun with it!
