I am trying to make a teacup and saucer. I have tried to make by using a real teacup to place rolled out gumpaste in to shape but I cannot smooth the gumpaste and it will get a crease etc.
Has anyone got any advice or instructions on how to do it.
We just saw a design similar to what you're talking about. It was in Elissa Strausser's Confetti Cakes book. We were at Borders last night during the heavy rains we got.

I made a teacup and saucer out of gumpaste a while ago (it's in my pictures), and I used a real teacup, put it upside down and covered it with gp just as I would cover a cake with fondant, trimmed all the edges and let it dry. Just remember to put some corn flour or crisco on the cup so the gp wont stick.
Thanks for your replies. I will try doing it on the outside of the cup this time because trying to put it on the inside is just too messy. I will let you know how it goes.
