I have a potential order for a small teapot cake and was hoping for a few pointers. I was thinking of stacking a 6/8/8/6 and carving it into a round ish shape then making the handle, spout and top out of gumpste. Does this sound reasonable? I'd love tips from anyone whose done this before or just has any ideas how best to do it. Thanks!

I made a teapot cake (see it in my pics) with the Wilton ball pan. It's only 6 inches across, so may not be enough for what you need? But it worked great. Used buttercream to get the two halves to stay together. I made my handle/spout/lid out of fondant/gumpaste, and made the spout with a scewer in it...because it was so heavy, I wanted to be sure it would go far into the cake, at a downward angle, then I also used royal icing to get it to stick, for stability. If you have any other questions, I'd be glad to offer advice if I can be of help.

That sounds pretty reasonable. I just made one this past weekend and I used the sports ball pan. it worked well. I am not sure how many servings that you need but for me carving is not something that I am good at so I try to stay far away from it.

I also used the ball pan to make teapot cake. Since I wasn't sure if that would be enough servings, I used the mini wonder mold pan to make tea cups.

I have one in my photos and used the ball pan too, but I put it on a round single layer to get more servings. it kinda looked like it was on a table.

I did the same thing, mines that nice. But it was the first time I tried it so I guess it worked atleast she loved it. Less carving really if you do it this way.

i made one last year, see my pics. used the ball pan that holds one cake mix, so i made 2 cakes and glued them together to make one round. spout made of fondant but it was so heavy. i attached a dowel and it stayed in, but was scary. next time i'll make it out of rice krispies so its lighter. handle made of fondant also. spout was so thick i had to make it 5 days in advance so it would dry.

I made one a while back by using the wonder mold pan. It was more of a tea kettle than a teapot since it had a flat bottom. The customer was picking it up, so I wanted it to be as stable as possible.
