A friend of mine wants a teacup cake to feed 15. I thought I would bake it in the wondermold pan, and then turn it upside down. My question is about covering it in fondant. How would be the best way to cover a cake of this shape? Should I cover it right side up, like i was doing a Barbie dress cake, and then just flip it over and fill in the top with piping gel to look like tea? What are the risks of the fondant sagging down the side of the teacup? This will be the first time using the wondermold pan, and I'm needing some help! icon_biggrin.gif

I would cover it the same way you would do the barbie cake and the ends of the fondant are going to be covered by "coffee" anyway so you won't see them. I made a teapot cake and had a really hard time with the handle cracking. My solution was to roll small balls of fondant and string them on floral wire, then poke the ends into the cake. They were super easy and cute. They never cracked either.There is a picture in my photos.
